This unit focuses on the evolution of international thought in the twentieth century by concentrating on the debates and disputes between competing intellectual perspectives in International Relations theory. The origins of the discipline of International Relations will be analysed, and the traditional perspectives of liberalism, realism, neo-realism and the English School will be explained and critically evaluated for their contemporary relevance. Critical alternatives to the traditional perspectives will then be examined in the form of Marxism and more recent perspectives of critical theory, post-modernism, constructivism and feminism. These theoretical traditions will be examined in light of key issues in world politics - such as security, globalisation, global governance, and human rights.
