POLIS 7001 - Approaches and Issues in International Studies

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2019

This course looks at contemporary theories of International Relations and then asks students to try and develop an understanding of how these theoretical issues relate to 'real world' events. The course overviews the key debates in IR theory scholarship - including an emphasis on both 'positivist' and 'post-positivist' approaches to the subject. The course will focus on particular theories and ask students to relate these theoretical paradigms to current issues in global politics
