Course Content

International relations is often understood as the study of politics premised on inter-governmental relations. Therefore, mainstream theoretical accounts tend to privilege interaction among states as the paramount, if not only or exclusive, site of thematization. As a result, the global context is reduced in mainstream treatments to security, diplomacy and aspects of inter-governmental association. This course, seeking to remedy this gap, probes into the trans-national, trans-local, inter-ethnic traces and bonds in the wider global context through an exploration of various themes in the disciplines other than IR.
