Introduction to BA Global Politics and International Relations for Offer Holders

Venue: Online

Book your place

Come and join us for our BA Global Politics and International Relations Offer Holder afternoon.

Our BA Global Politics and International Relations programme is a part of the School of Social Sciences.

You will have the opportunity to chat with our staff Dr Ali Guven and find out more about the programme.

Dr Ali Guven’s work lies at the intersection of comparative and international political economy, focusing primarily on development policy and practice. Much of his recent research examines how an increasingly multipolar global economy impacts the parameters of development cooperation, with reference to international organisations such as the IMF and the World Bank.

The course focuses on political changes that are sweeping the globe, transforming politics across countries and regions, as well as relations between states in the international system.

On this course you will receive a grounding in the key concepts and theories that inform the study of global politics and international relations. You will study the core institutions and process of the international political and economic system, as well as the challenges that are posed by the central political problems of the present, including climate change, transformations in the nature of warfare, as well as social conflicts and exclusions centred around class, gender, and race.  

Our academics are outstanding researchers in the fields of international relations, international political economy, political and historical sociology, political theory, public policy, and the study of countries and regions such as Britain, China, the USA, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and East Asia.

Birkbeck teaching takes place in the evening, leaving you free to study, volunteer or explore London during the day.

This event will be online.
