About

The degree of Doctor of Philosophy in International Relations and Security Studies is awarded by the University of Waikato for research carried out under the supervision of at least two staff members. 

Overview

The International Relations and Security Studies programme is offered at the University of Waikato.

Like most states, New Zealand depends for its security and prosperity on regional and international stability. Its political, economic and societal well-being can be affected by, for example, major power relations; global financial crisis; and the rise of violent extremist non-state actors and the responses to them. 

As a good international citizen, New Zealand seeks to play a role in the international institutions which try to uphold international law and order and to contribute to international stabilisation operations in various countries.
