Content

This unit investigates key developments in contemporary international politics. It introduces the main perspectives to understanding world politics and the main elements of world politics: the state, society of states, international law and globalisation. The second part of the unit examines the key issues in world politics such as security in a globalising world, human rights, humanitarian assistance, violence and environmental governance. It asks if the way we address these issues and the correlated development and growth of contemporary global governance reflects a greater concern for justice in global politics.
