I did this course for 2nd time. The course is very interesting & informative. Thank you Coursera & Leiden University.

I enjoyed every moment here. I recommend this course for everyone.

Outstanding course!

A good global/general overview of oppertunities and threads irt new emerging powers and states!

For me, as European, it may had more focus on CSTO instead of NATO (we generally know enough about this organizations, and information about CSTO is more difficult to get (in English/German/French/Dutch)

After all a very good course, i'm looking forward to see a followup comming ;-)
