An understanding of the key issues in world politics, both historically and in the dynamically globalizing contemporary world, is crucial in analysing both traditional and non-traditional threats to security. It is also important to identify the range of actors that play a role in international politics and the foreign policies of the ‘great’ powers, the European powers and the ‘emerging’ powers.

This course briefly reviews the historical dimensions and contending analytical perspectives on international relations, with an emphasis on processes of globalisation and significant issues in contemporary world politics. Secondly, it explores the foreign policy perspectives of the `great' powers', the European powers and the `emerging' powers.
