"We study the past to understand the present; we understand the present to guide the future." As a society it is important that we learn from our mistakes if we don’t want to repeat them. However, we shouldn’t simply study facts and dates from key moments. Instead we should analyse the political, cultural, and social structures of the past.

These questions and others like them will be explored over two weeks on Immerse’s International Relations summer programme.
It will take a first look at the main goals, concepts, and ideas in the field of International Relations which will then be applied in later classes to discuss the place of International Relations in the overall disciplines of Political and Social Sciences. Questions considered are: What is International Relations? Who are its principal actors? What is the source of state power? And why are states important in International Relations?
