PSCI 434 - Insurgency and Counterinsurgency

(3cr) This course will critically examine insurgency, counterinsurgency, and “small wars”, drawing both on academic research and current doctrine and practice. It will address both the historical antecedents of insurgent and counterinsurgent strategy (theory and practice) as well as contemporary practice, with a focus on U.S. practice in Iran and Afghanistan and critiques of its approach. The course will also address important non-U.S. case studies, including examples from Southeast Asia and Latin America. Prerequisites: PSCI 100  or PSCI 101 , or permission of instructor.
