Contemporary Issues in World Politics

This seminar focuses on current, major issues with an international dimension and/or global impact and with salience for the emerging patterns of world politics. While engaging in critical analysis of current issues, it examines the broader conceptual context and analytic framework which explain interactions among nations. Weekly reports based on assigned readings as well as a major research paper pursue distinct goals: the critical utilization of concepts; the refinement of analytic tools; the examination of different perspectives (national, international, global community); policy analysis.
