This subject examines contemporary formulations of international relations, the global system and related institutions. Beginning with an overview of the existing approaches to globalisation and International Relations, the subjects then examines the role of multilateral institutions in providing frameworks for global and regional governance. Various United Nations agencies, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the African Union (AU), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other groups have been increasingly involved in addressing non-traditional security challenges including climate change, transnational crime and weapons proliferation. The subject explores alternative approaches to power, globalisation, environmental diplomacy, the role of strategic and political cultures, and new ‘world order’ transitions. The seminar series is structured to allow students to develop expertise in chosen areas over the semester, with a focus on research and knowledge innovation. Students are encouraged to take up individual topics that are of personal, professional or vocational interest.
