Course Learning Objectives This course introduces students to the study of international politics and international relations. We begin by examining approaches to the study of international relations before briefly reviewing the history of international system. Students will also become familiar with the conceptual foundations of the study of international relations, such as the central theories and main actors in the study of international relations. Through various theoretical lenses, we will analyze a range of issues in international relations, such as armed conflict, the politics of economic relations, human rights and global environmental politics. The aim of the course is to familiarize students with international politics and to sharpen critical thinking skills when analyzing international affairs. Whenever applicable, course lectures and discussions will draw on current events. Therefore, students are strongly encouraged to read about world news, for example in The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, The Washington Post, or The Economist . 1
