BGPA321 INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL THEORY

The course aims to explore international relations from the perspective of political theory. We examine the meaning of morality and ethical judgment in the context of a number of issues and practices in international relations, including wars, terrorism, human rights, state sovereignty, globalization, role of international law and global inequality. Students will critically assess the ethical practices of states and non-state actors through theoretical analysis, case studies and simulation exercises.
