|Abstract: ||The course is designed as an introduction to the major theories and themes in international relations. The intent is to accumulate knowledge about international relations – past and present - and to develop analytical skills to explain current events as well as the state of the international system. The first part of the course provides students with the conceptual foundations for understanding international relations. The second part covers the historical development of the international system. The third part of the course discusses the major components of contemporary international relations: international security, international political economy, and international organization.
The course aims at helping students critically think about international affairs beyond the day-to-day level by illustrating the connection between current events and theoretical paradigms. It also gives a sense of awareness of the complex factors influencing contemporary global politics as well as of the conflicting interpretations of current international issues that affect our daily lives. The course has significant international content and is structured to introduce students to both national and cosmopolitan perspectives on the international system.|
