UK International Relations Courses
Introduction to International Relations
In an increasingly globalised world, it is more and more important to examine the interactions and dynamics between governments, countries and organisations; to analyse the influences inter-dependencies the conflicts between them. It is a branch of political science that allows for critical thinking about the rise of popular movements, democracy, sovereignty, terrorism, human rights, poverty, and ecological issues.
This subject covers such themes such as global danger and external intervention in conflicts and issues relating to the nature power, its forms and the ways it can be exploited or resisted.
