International politics in English

This course is the fourth course within the course package Political Science I in English and is taught during term part D. It is therefore not possible to apply for this course independently as it can only be studied by students admitted to Political Science I - course package (SVE010).

The course gives an introduction to the study of international politics, international conflicts and international cooperation as theoretical problems. Theoretical perspectives and concepts in the study of international politics are discussed, as well as perspectives on systems and actors in the analyses of international politics. The course part also deals with international conflicts and cooperation in world politics in the 20th century, in addition to issues of development and international political economy. Finally, subjects such as the EU as a global actor, the design and methods of international organisations, and the tendencies of change in the international system will be discussed.
