Global Knowledge 2: International Relations

This course provides a general introduction to the field of International Relations (IR) and major themes in world politics. It is designed to introduce students to IR by encompassing various approaches. The course will cover basic theories as well as empirical coverage of core aspects of current international relations, including sources of conflict and cooperation, the role of non-state actors, and contemporary global issues (e.g. US-Japan relationship, migration).

Global Management 1: International Relations and Economics (Core)

This course provides an introduction to international political economy - the interface between international economics and international politics. This study is based on the assumption that in order to understand patterns of interaction and change at the global level, we need to look at both international politics and economics in an integrated manner.
Students will look at economic issues of trade, finance, production and development, but not from the perspective of economic theory. Instead, students will engage with the International Relations concepts, ideas and literatures on the economic relations among states, and between states and non-state actors (such as firms, societal groups and international organisations). The focus is therefore on the political problems that arise as a consequence of the increasing density of international economic relations. Knowledge of economics is an advantage but not a requirement.
