Understanding Global Politics

As taught in Autumn Semester 2009

Dr Vanessa Pupavac, Dr Xiaoke Zhang, Dr Sabine Carey, School of Politics

This module introduces global politics through the major theoretical, historical and empirical ways of seeing international relations. Different claims, about, for example, human nature, power, war, peace, the state, society, law and politics are offered by thinkers who exercise a major influence on our contemporary understanding. These claims contribute to different approaches to politics in a global context.
