Synopsis

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, international political economy, environment, social justice and human rights, and on the practice of diplomacy through a critical presentation of the major competing analytical perspectives of realism, liberalism and world systems, as well as constructivist and feminist approaches.
