Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

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: shapers of the international scene; the US and its evolving international role; ideology and foreign policy; the environment and climate change; rebuilding order after systemic collapse; China’s foreign relations and its place in the world; politics and development in Africa (conflict, new social forces and democratisation; Africa today and tomorrow); the politics of the modern Middle East (before and after the 2011 uprisings; the Egyptian experience; the Syrian civil war; the rise of ISIS).

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