Course content

Many of the issues of international relations have been thrust directly into our everyday lives. This requires us to reflect on them systematically.

Our course takes the exciting and troubling times we live in as its starting point. We use a theoretically grounded approach with a distinctive critical edge to cover the theory and the history of international relations. You examine a wide range of issues of contemporary relevance with students from a diverse range of backgrounds.
