International Policy and Diplomacy

The course addresses key issues associated with the way countries of the world co-exist in the face of rapid change. The process of globalisation has increased the importance of policy making and implementation in a wide range of universal and regional organisations, as well as between states (and especially in a multilateral context). A study of diplomacy can be appropriately grounded in the global policy context. State-centric images of the world have come under considerable challenge and there is important scope for a focus on the policy context of this trend. Diplomacy is studied in terms of the complex and wide-ranging means for official communication, and in the context of the many types of intergovernmental organisations and their links with a growing transnational environment of international non-governmental organisations.
