Warwick's Politics and International Studies (PAIS) Department, ranked one of the top Politics Departments in the UK for research (REF 2014), distinctively combines international relations and the EU. Course overview This programme analyses European politics explicitly in the context of both International Relations (IR) and International Political Economy (IPE). It is designed for students keen to understand past and present international relations of Europe, and the EU, amidst times of crisis and in a constantly changing world. The combination of IR, IPE and the EU makes this programme distinct from many others. The economic crisis in Europe, Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic provide an opportunity to explore how the EU is shaped internally and can respond externally to growing political, economic and societal challenges. This course examines the EU, its significance in and for the world system, its relationships with key developed and emerging countries and regions, and the various ways in which it engages with the international milieu on issues of global significance.
- Europe and the World
- Justice and Equality
- Theories and Issues in International Political Economy
- Secrecy and Spies: British Intelligence in the Modern World
Assessment methods include research essays and other (written) assignments throughout the year, culminating in a 10,000 word dissertation at the end.
