In this team-taught course, we consider some of the key issues shaping politics in the modern world and examine how political, strategic and economic aspects of international relations interact with, and reinforce one another in a global age. Scholars from various fields of expertise will cover a range of current and historical issues, which are planned to include: an introduction to the international order; the role of economics, trade and war in the world today; diplomacy, international law and the United Nations; international relations in a globalised world; Chinese domestic politics from an historical and contemporary perspective; dealing with crises – Eurozone and refugees; Brexit and beyond, and the future of the EU; challenges to the liberal world order and scenes of tension.

Please note: C11 can only be taken with A11 and B11. Enrolment for this course is capped at 40. An excellent complement to this course is ISP Term II, A21/B21/C21.
