International relations allows students to explore the many issues and questions raised by the rapidly changing nature of contemporary world politics, including: How are security issues to be understood in a fluid international system? How far can the consideration of ethical, normative and cultural issues contribute to the understanding of politics across state borders? How is globalisation affecting the sovereignty of states and the economic policies which governments pursue at home and abroad? What is the significance of issues such as human rights and the environment in contemporary international politics? What kind of world order, or disorder, is emerging in the aftermath of the twenty-first century?
