CPOL-1200 Introduction to international relations

In this course we will introduce the concepts and central issues of present-day international relations. The presentations, lectures, discussions and activities to be carried out will be based upon real world problems, from the present and from the past alike. However, the main emphasis will be given to the concepts, processes and relevant theories to analyze global politics, and not to current or historical events. This course pursues three objectives: to provide the basic knowledge on the international system, to develop the necessary analytical tools to critically study the global relations, and to prepare students for more advanced courses on the international relations by introducing them to the basic theories of this discipline.
