ANHS2602 - Law, Disorder and Ideology in Rome

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Eleanor Cowan

Description

We live in an era in which the interests of national security are constantly balanced against the rule of law. In Rome too, crisis and emergency, whether genuine or the product of partisan rhetoric, could threaten the rule of law. This unit explores the idea that the collapse of the rule of law engendered the collapse of the Republic, whilst also seeking to promote stimulating and topical discussion about the rule of law in democratic societies like our own.
