Course Aims

Societies across the globe are increasingly pre-occupied by a number of issues that have deep domestic and transnational implications. The course introduces an actor-institution framework and employs a student-centred teaching approach to encourage original analysis of the issues of world politics.  The framework looks into the role of differentiated state actors within a political system, the role of global actors and institutions, and the interacting themes of international cooperation and conflicts/competition in shaping the world issues.
