Governing Risk Society

The core of this course is about governing risk in the global world. More specifically, this course explores the various consequences of globalization and the changing nature of risk and its governance. The course is interdisciplinary and is located at the intersection of philosophy, political studies, contemporary history, and criminology. Several case studies will be examined to identify, assess, and evaluate the nature of risks and how these risks are translated into policy. The course is taught by two instructors with diverse educational background and whose research pursuits intertwine discourses of society and law. Furthermore, their prior work explores social problems and social responses in the international context with Russia as point of reference.
