Course Aims

This course aims to not only ground students in the different theoretical paradigms in International Relations and learn to apply them to an understanding of international organisations in the post-1945 period, but also to relate these theories and debates to core issues and problems of contemporary world order. The course also aims to instil a daily habit of critical analysis and self-reflection through weekly assessments (think pieces, class discussion, and presentations), as well as to advance skills in researching and writing a significant paper, and public speaking and debate. By the end of this course, students will have argued and supported various opinions and perspectives on some of the most pressing issues of our age, and their relation to international organisations.
