INTR13-310: Alternative Globalisations


This subject examines alternative formulations of international relations and the global system. Beginning with an overview of the existing approaches to International Relations, the subject moves on to alternative approaches to power, globalisation, environmental diplomacy, the role of strategic and political cultures, and new ‘world order’ transitions. It considers the development of new governance regimes, information-based networks, ‘people power’ as a driver of change, and global cities as international actors. At present, conflicting and alternative patterns of globalisation are reshaping the international system, allowing scope for different visions of the future. New concepts of governance, capitalism, democracy and security need to be devised to meet these challenges. The main themes of the subject are explored through a case study approach with wide-ranging examples. 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.
