Introduction to Global Politics

Global politics is a complex arena in which a vast number of participants, including nation-states, multinational corporations and inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations pursue often conflicting agendas. This course provides you with an overview of global politics by looking at both its historical development and the relevant contemporary issue areas in the light of various analytical approaches to international relations. Among the main topics covered are the origins of the state system, the dynamics of international security, international law and organisations, processes and consequences of economic globalisation, and the changing architecture of global governance.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
