In this subject we look at global issues – terrorism, human rights, war, genocide – and attempt to understand how and why these events happen. We examine the current events happening, from Black Lives Matter protests, to Chinese cyberwarfare or the spread of Covid-19, asking how these events occurred and how to solve them.
