Fall 2013 - 63530 - PA387G - The Nature of the International System
What are the principles and structures of order and governance in the international system? What is the role of power? Is hegemony necessary for world order? What happens when new powers emerge? Do nuclear weapons lead to more stability in the international system? Are international organizations important?
This course will seek to answer these and other questions, starting with first principles of the nature of the international system through a survey of core substantive arenas in international policy including security and economics.
