Course content

Designed to introduce you to the advanced study of diplomacy, this course will enable you to engage with the latest research in the law of armed conflict, crisis management and contemporary international history.

Diplomacy provides the vital human framework for the development of international society in a globalising world. Increasingly complex patterns of law, culture, history, economics and politics – within and between states – are mediated by the practice of diplomacy. The craft of diplomacy is key in mediating and regulating the contemporary world.

This dynamic, interdisciplinary course is offered jointly by the School of Politics and International Relations, School of Law, and Department of History. You will develop a broad understanding of diplomacy and negotiation, including traditional approaches that view it as a specialist form of statecraft, and modern conceptions that embrace areas such as the media and cultural diplomacy.

You can take part in a field trip to Europe visiting sights of political and cultural interest. Recent trips have included Brussels, the Hague and Berlin.
