International Politics

The course examines theoretical approaches to international politics in historical perspective, and considers important contemporary debates.


Under consideration are both the more traditional approaches - broadly realist and liberal - which dominate the field, and newer approaches, which criticise and oppose them. The course builds directly on the foundations of STV-1005: International Politics, and aims to provide deeper insight into the central assumptions of, and disagreements between, the major theoretical approaches, as well their implications for the study of international relation.
