International Relations and Global Communications
We live in a communications-saturated world where 24-hour news coverage, access to the internet and the use of social media have become the norm for millions of people. Global events are instantly reported by the news media, analysed and interpreted by them and millions of ordinary citizens. These developments challenge the traditionally secretive practices of international diplomacy and the ability of governments to control information whilst also creating powerful new tools for propaganda; they enhance the importance of cultural or 'soft' power in international relations and they have also transformed the nature of warfare. This programme will equip you with a sophisticated understanding of contemporary international relations and of key developments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the media. It will also provide you with the knowledge, methods and techniques to effectively engage with and critically evaluate the interaction between these two areas of study.
