Slide 5 – Course objectives Many of you will have done the introduction to IR course: to explore the way that the int. system operates;  We will not be looking at the system from the historical perspective, although  knowledge of IR history is valuable to help with your understanding; We will be looking at the system almost as a living independent organism rather  than as just a theoretical construct. key developments of 20 th  century will not be disadvantaged but it would be good if you  could try to catch up on some of that stuff:
