When we think of international relations, we think of it as an attempt to answer the great questions of war and peace between nation states. Indeed, security, power, foreign policy and diplomacy are major components of international relations, but international relations today is about much more.
Fundamentally, it seeks to understand the world in which we live, where complex processes like globalisation, international institutions, values and beliefs, economics and a host of transnational forces are increasingly shaping our daily lives.
Understanding the forces influencing our world has great practical value for you, in both a professional and social sense. You can contribute to building a better world, by studying the issues that matter.
