Rights and justice in international relations
Can the concept of human rights be applied across borders or are rights culturally specific? Is it realistic, or even desirable, to aim at an international system based on universal principles of justice? This unit takes a critical view of the assumption that ‘rights are a good thing’ and looks at the problems that arise when they are applied in the international arena.

Math Objects
The paper discusses mathematical form generation as an academic methodology to develop new approaches to architectural design. The academic design studio ?Math objects? investigates the relationship between complex 3d-surfaces and mathematics in order to expand the formal repertoire of architecture. It claims that the process of form generation can be seen as an autonomous entity, which is independent from an overall strategy or any a priori meaning. Architecture has always originated from a co

Lecture 7: Engineers at War
Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Christopher Pugsley on "Engineers at War". Many of the most prominent man-made historical features in the landscape are the work of military engineers. Hadrian's Wall, Windsor Castle, the coastal fortifications, even the Albert Hall, all testify to the skills of the military engineer. Military engineers throughout history have always had to marry theory and genius to the practical skills of making the concept work in crisis on the ground; no small accomplishment.
