Objectives of the Course
This course aims: to date on international relations and global politics, and to provide an integrated input for the future. Without ignoring the international dimension of world politics, 'global' and 'international' Recognizing that the size of competing or incompatible conceptions of representation are trying to become truly global. In this regard, global policy processes around the world only, system and institutional framework for the phrase 'global' is not the policy level, worldwide, covers all national and sub-national levels. Such an approach, while interacting with each other under conditions of global interdependence through the trouble of a growing number of states reflects the fact that they continue to be the main actor on the world stage.

Contents of the Course

How should we approach the study of world politics? How can we understand the world in the best way? States are the building blocks of world politics and form the basis of interstate relations, the essence of world politics. In this case, the state of the operation of that understanding how we interact with the world of politics also means that we can understand each other. But the paradigm of globalization has been a popular since the 1980s. This paradigm is based on the belief that the recently transformed world politics with the development of global connectivity and interdependence. Accordingly, now the world is not the coming together of the broken state or unit of each other, are operating as a single integrated world. global politics is trying to find a path between these competing paradigms. Both see the world of politics outside the state and national governments, as well as to deny that no longer act in the context of global interdependence of problems that a significant number of states is equally meaningless. However, politics is what truly global? Globalisation has changed the world of politics, how and to what extent? Our perception of dar global politics, but also different theoretical lenses for our interpretation of the world, that must take into account the different ways of seeing the world. What is the specific difference between the mainstream perspective as critical perspectives on global politics? Finally, the world is still stubbornly remain the same. Therefore, global politics, is an ongoing and accelerating change, according to some areas. However, some aspects of global politics, it is still a character that continuity. How is the balance between continuity and change in global politics?
