Course description

Course summary This specialisation focuses on global cooperation and conflict and the analysis of the players that shape global politics: governments, international organisations, media, businesses, and NGO's.
Course description Our International Relations specialisation will provide you with an insight into these players and into fundamental questions of contemporary international relations: is the international community equipped to address violent conflict and (cyber) terrorism? Why do states intervene in some cases of human rights violations, but not in other? Will the competition for natural resources intensify domestic and international conflict? What are the political consequences of regional integration (in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia) and of the emergence of powers such as Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRICs)? What are the political ramifications of global trade and finance? The Master's in International Relations is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Political Science.
