Course Description:
In the context of globalisation, world politics becomes an increasingly important area for analysis. Why is global inequality growing? Is the global power of the USA waning in the 21st century? What does it mean to fight a ‘War on Terror’? How can we understand contemporary events in world politics? This module will introduce you to a range of issues in contemporary world politics and provide you with analytical tools with which to interpret them. You will be exposed to a variety of approaches or ‘framings’ of world politics and encouraged to develop your own perspectives and reasoned arguments about them.

This (POC 1015) is not a 300+ level course. However, I can see this as a nearly similar intro course in comparative politics which is POL S 241
