International Relations

This programme takes account of the perspectives and concerns of non-core states in international relations: developing countries and countries in transition or conflict, and those states marginalised in the global system; how do these states manage political relations in the international system? What impact do international regimes and international law have upon international politics? To what extent can the non-core states influence the global order? Can we identify changes to the global order from new emerging powers in the 21st century? The programme develops critical perspectives on theory and practice in international affairs, and enables students to understand and evaluate issues in the contemporary global arena.
