This course offers an innovative, interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary international studies. How can we best understand and analyse international developments such as the role of the World Trade Organisation, the power of the USA, or global contests over religion, culture and rights? What are the main forms of international order and disorder, and how are they changing? The course provides the tools of political and economic analysis needed to answer these questions as well as an historical and conceptual understanding of states and security; the contested place of religion, culture and norms at an international and global level; and the role of technology, inequality and networks. It oncludes with a review of models of world order and debates about how world order is changing.
