World Politics (LUC), 2015-2016

How are foreign policies made? What does the rise of China mean for international order? How is the nature of warfare changing? Are nation-states becoming irrelevant in a globalising world? What explains the rise of Islamism in the Middle East? These are some of the important questions explored by our students of the major World Politics.

Providing answers means engaging with some of the most pressing contemporary global issues, such as sovereignty, intervention, migration, culture, religion, peace, terrorism and much more. It also means understanding the roles played by the many different actors in world politics, from nation states and international organisations to individuals, NGO’s, social movements and multinational corporations.
