Course Information

The importance of balancing rights and security is very much a global 21st century issue. The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime considers transnational organised crime to be changing and flexible, and capable of taking advantage of the increased levels of globalization. This makes it more than a national priority, and so understanding how international, regional and national organisations are attempting to tackle the issue is a crucial step. It must be balanced with international human rights provisions, and the overlap into terrorism brings into play national security strategies which, in turn have to be balanced with religious sensitivity. All of this is conducted in an environment where illicit firearms have been responsible for over a million deaths between 2012 and 2016 (Small Arms Survey, 2017).

The LLM Transnational Rights and Security allows you to explore and develop skills in all of these areas.

The course is assessed using a mixture of:

  • Time constrained pieces of work, allowing you to enhance your skills within strict operational time limits;
  • Research plans, allowing for the development of effective research strategies; and
  • Longer pieces of written work, and a dissertation, which gives you the opportunity to explore a topic in more depth;
  • Presentations

The assessment methods throughout the LLM are designed to give you the optimum scope to demonstrate the required level of knowledge, understanding, application and skills to achieve the learning outcomes.
