International Relations is an academic discipline that focuses on the study of the interaction of the actors in international politics, including states and non-state actors. The study of IR raises questions such as: What powers does the United Nations actually have? What influence does the security council have over the rest of the world? Which treaties and trade agreements have shaped relationships between countries who only decades ago were at war? 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?
