INTR13-306: Prospects for Global Politics


This subject examines potentialities of the early 21st century, with a particular focus on the interconnected world and issues of security. Students are introduced to concepts in Futures Studies and methods such as scenario construction. The subject is designed to act as the 'think-tank' of the international relations program, providing analyses and insights into a range of issues which dominate the global agenda. A special feature of this subject is the introduction and application of Indian and Chinese concepts of change and how these relate to Western ideas. As such, students gain a transcultural understanding of Futures Studies and hence the forces shaping global politics.
