PPR221: International Relations and Security
Tutors: Mark Lacy,Astid Nordin and TBC
The principal objective of this course is to provide a relatively comprehensive and integrated foundation to the study of international relations by introducing students to its basic conceptual vocabulary and theoretical concerns and by applying this conceptual knowledge to an understanding of changes and developments in the international system.
The course covers the historical development of the discipline in the 20th century into the 21st century, moving from the orthodoxy that has come to dominate mainstream Anglo-American international relations (Realism and Liberalism) through to the various challenges that have emerged from critical schools of thought. The course examines how different theories of international relations illuminate and interrogate some of the central ethico-political problems of the 'international' in modern history.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.

Burchill S & Linklater A Theories of International Relations
