The Geopolitics, Territory & Security MA is a unique multidisciplinary course that focuses on the territorial aspect of inter-state relations. You will explore geopolitical and political geographic analysis – contextualised within the wider social sciences – and the relevant aspects of international law to understand the creation and maintenance of international boundaries, borders at various scales and the factors driving contemporary territorial disputes.

Courses are divided into modules. You will normally take modules totalling at least 180 credits.

Every 18 months, the course organisers stage The London International Boundary Conference (jointly with leading international law firm Volterra Fietta), a leading international forum dedicated to exploring the complexities of contemporary boundary and territorial disputes. Our first conference was staged in the Spring of 2013, and our next (fourth) iteration is scheduled for December 2018. Masters students on the Geopolitics, Territory and Security course are intimately involved with this event.
