Global Politics and International Relations is concerned with relations among states, the role of international organisations and, foreign policies and power relations between countries. The major will examine the interaction of society, economy and politics across national boundaries. Students will develop knowledge of global politics and analyse the theory and practice of international relations by examining how communities respond to globalisation, migration, poverty and climate change. Students will also examine the influence of global movements and issues, such as environmentalism and religion and how contemporary global challenges are understood and addressed by political actors, from nation states to global social movements.
