  • Objectives
    To examine the nature and dynamics of international relations in the contemporary global system, focusing on differing concepts of order in the post-Cold War world. It aims to make students think critically about the nature of international relations and about the extent to which western interests, institutions and culture dominate the world system. The course addresses such questions as: is the contemporary international system ‘unipolar’ or ‘multipolar’?; what role does the USA play in international affairs?; what are the prospects for international peace and cooperation in the twenty-first century and is there a ‘clash of civilisations’?
