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 develop analytical skills to better understand the contemporary international system. The first part of the course provides students with the conceptual foundations for understanding international relations. The second part covers the major components of contemporary international relations: international security, international political economy, and international organizations. The course aims at helping students think about international affairs beyond the day-to-day level by illustrating the connection between current events and theoretical paradigms. Students are provided with the opportunity to learn about the historical origins of the international system and most significant events of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The course 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. It has significant international content and is structured to introduce students to both national and cosmopolitan perspectives on the international system.
