Course summary

Gain an international perspective by exploring how nations interact on the global stage, what happens during conflict, and the challenges faced by states and world organisations trying to preserve peace and security. You will engage with the theory of international relations and diplomacy, examining global inequalities, the rise of the superpower nations and what power looks like at a global level.
