The actors in international relations range from individual persons to groups and institutions - with the latter including states and sub-state units, international organizations and movements, non-governmental organizations, multi-national corporations and regional organizations. INR1000 focuses on the evolution of the international system with an emphasis on factors such as international law, organisations, war, social justice and human rights, and on the practice of diplomacy through a critical presentation of three major competing analytical perspectives of realism/states systems, world systems, and pluralism/Liberalism.
