As long as there are countries, international security will be an imperative field of the future—even if the venues of conflict change. Jobs in international relations can range from diplomatic posts and peacekeeping roles to roles in homeland security and law. In the future, international relations and international security must evolve to address new threats like cyberwarfare, both between countries and within them. Climate refugees, water scarcity, the rise of fascist movements, and other challenges will occupy international relations experts in the coming decades.
