POLITICS 300

Great Power Relations


Description

This course aims to familiarise students with concepts and issues of international competition and cooperation between powerful states, including the United States, Europe, Russia and China, implications of their interactions for the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Oceania, and consequences for the United Nations and other international organisations. 

Learning aims include not only students’ mastery of the vocabulary, history and key concepts of great power relations but also students’ development of skills of analysis, evaluation and presentation. 

The course is to be taught at Stage III as an option for students to complete their BA degree in Politics and International Relations and other BA degrees as appropriate, and as preparation for the subsequent study of politics and international relations at graduate level.
