Spotlight on: Understanding World Politics

Realism. Liberalism. Constructivism. Marxism. Feminism. Postcolonialism.

What differences do these academic theories make to the way we see the real world? In ‘Understanding World Politics: A Critical Overview of Core Issues and Theories’, Outi Keranen attempts to answer this question by combining a close reading of the key texts with analysis of contemporary politics.

The course takes a particular interest in US foreign policy, the Middle East and Africa.

This course is well suited for anyone interested in learning more about how global politics works in the complex modern world. Can terrorism be addressed with domestic policy? How can countries negotiate on environmental issues? Should human behavior shape our approach to internet security? If you have an analytical brain and an interest in the world around you, then this could be the course for you.
