INTLPOL 268: Hack Lab: Introduction to Cybersecurity

This course aims to give students a solid understanding of the most common types of attacks used in cybercrime and cyberwarfare. Taught by a long-time cybersecurity practitioner, a recovering cyberlaw litigator, and a group of hearty, motivated TAs, each session will begin with a lecture covering the basics of an area of technology and how that technology has been misused in the past. Students will then complete a lab section, with the guidance of the instructor and assistants, where they attack a known insecure system using techniques and tools seen in the field. Each week, there will be a second lecture on the legal and policy impacts of the technologies and techniques we cover. By the end of the course, students are expected to have a basic understanding of some of the most common offensive techniques in use today as well as a comprehensive overview of the most important aspects of cyberpolicy and law. No computer science background is required. All students must have access to a Windows, Mac OS X or Linux laptop.

INTLPOL 288: The Asian Triangle: Japan, Korea and China (EASTASN 188, EASTASN 288)

This class will examine the complex inter-relationship between the three great states of Northeast Asia - Japan, Korea and China.

INTLPOL 290: Practical Approaches to Global Health Research (EPI 237, MED 226)

(Formerly IPS 290 and HRP 237) How do you come up with an idea for a useful research project in a low resource setting? How do you develop a research question, prepare a concept note, and get your project funded? How do you manage personnel in the field, complex cultural situations, and unexpected problems? How do you create a sampling strategy, select a study design, and ensure ethical conduct with human subjects? This course takes students through the process of health research in under-resourced countries from the development of the initial research question and literature review to securing support and detailed planning for field work. Students progressively develop and receive weekly feedback on a concept note to support a funding proposal addressing a research question of their choosing. Aimed at graduate students interested in global health research, though students of all disciplines interested in practical methods for research are welcome. Undergraduates who have completed 85 units or more may enroll with instructor consent. Sign up for 1 unit credit to participate in class sessions or 3 units to both participate in classes and develop a concept note.

INTLPOL 296: Blueprint to Battleground: Weapons, Technologies, and Sociotechnical Change

War is a technological contest. Yet the development and workings of weapons technologies are commonly treated as the esoteric domain of scientists and engineers, rather than policymakers and policy analysts. Poor outcomes result when those who study, oversee, promote, or oppose the use of armaments fail to understand their origins, effects, and social meanings. This course explores weapons technologies as both material and social artifacts: how and why they are developed, the manner in which their proper uses and implications are contested, and the means by which they are proliferated or eliminated. Emphasis is placed on technologies central to modern global security, from the nuclear warhead to the machine gun, and on analytic tools for assessing their implications.
