This course is offered to the students of Security Studies and MISS programmes as compulsory, to non-programme students, including the international exchange students, as optional.
The course introduces students into the traditions of international thought. It starts with the evolution of the discipline of International Relations (IR), traced by means of presenting its "great debates". Following this, the course surveys a variety of individual traditions and streams: realism and neorealism, liberalism and neoliberalism, constructivism and continental approaches, scientism, Marxism, feminism and green political theory. The course concludes with the philosophical reflection of the field.
The course aims to provide an advanced understanding of the development of international thought. All those taking the course will be expected to become familiar with a defined set of readings and issues.
