This subject provides students with an opportunity to think about some of the major issues in contemporary international politics. An underlying theme is the extent to which contemporary international politics can be seen in terms of the emergence of a new pattern of order or not. This theme is approached through an examination of state-based and cosmopolitan approaches in contemporary international politics, with reference to issues such as the role of the US and the major powers, the role of Islam, the UN and regional organisations, international justice and democracy, and global inequality. International disorder is approached through a study of issues such as the role of nuclear weapons, Third World conflicts and terrorism. Students who complete this subject should have an understanding of a range of issues or themes in contemporary international politics. have written an in-depth analysis of at least one of those themes or issues. and be able to reflect more broadly on the range of themes and issues which have been raised.
A subject reader will be available for purchase from the University Bookshop.
