OverviewModule descriptionIn an increasingly interconnected world, opportunities and problems from the Arab Spring to the European debt crisis and the 'rise' of China have become truly international.Designed for all those interested in this unique sphere of academic study, you will examine approaches within International Relations, from core concepts like power or sovereignty to the specific theories of international politics, such as realist, liberal institutionalist, and constructivist thinking, as well as taking a close look at global governance and international political economy.We will bridge the gap between theoretical insights and practical problems such as the occurrence of war, the role of the United Nations or international responses to climate change.Not only will you gain a broad knowledge of concepts and approaches to study the 'international', but also the skill to use these concepts to critically analyse international issues.Teaching patternLecturesSeminars & TutorialsPrivate StudyModule assessmentTwo essays of 2000 words each
