Subject Description
INTS121 explores the sources of power in the modern 'globalised' world. It examines politics and power within societies and states and then surveys international projections of power through political, economic and military means. It analyses the role of key international organisation and also introduces debates around inequality in the global order. Other issues such as racism, nationalism, human rights and gender politics are considered. Finally, the subject assesses attempts to reform the contemporary global order and also looks at social and other movements that have organised resistance to it.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a clear knowledge of the multiple sources of power in international politics and analyse at an introductory level their impacts on different topics in a variety of contexts.
2. Understand how history, governance and power relations impacts the operations of some key international organisations.
3. Outline the level of inequality in the global system and give basic explanations for this inequality.
