Course Long Title

International Politics


This course explores some of the many structures and processes that organize world politics, including the system of sovereign states, the global capitalist economy, and the varied ways gender and race form nation-states and therefore their interaction at a global level. To examine how these structures reinforce, intrude upon, and sometimes subvert each other, this course first delves into some of the major theories of International Relations and later focuses on specific case studies such as international efforts to regulate climate change, human rights, migration, and international trade.
