Master in World Politics and International Relations

University of Pavia
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Italy Pavia

The two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. [+]

Our world is united and fragmented. Common links and challenges bind the international community together, while political phenomena are increasingly driven by regional dynamics and by conflicting national perspectives on security, wealth and identity. Globalization is still on the move along with processes of regional integration and the proliferation of new states. Military power is still concentrated at the state level, but is also becoming available to non-state actors. Technologies and information spread globally, and are variously transformed into forces for cooperation and conflict. The two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. How are foreign policy and domestic policy related? Is regime change necessarily inconsistent with political stability? Under what conditions can power be tamed in contemporary international relations? To answer these questions, you need expertise in political science. Are contemporary international relations more or less conflict-driven than in the past? How, exactly, did the current international system arise? How did we get from Statecraft to “Globecraft”? To address contemporary challenges you need expertise in contemporary history. Is international law just a set of formal rules, or does it impact on the content of international relations? How are human rights promoted or enforced internationally? Are Mercosur and Nafta comparable to the... [-]

Master in Applied and Interdisciplinary History: Usable Pasts

Higher School of Economics
Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Russia St. Petersburg

Built on international experience of developing similar programmes, we use methodologies of global, comparative and transnational historical research that facilitate the study of patterns connecting European, Russian, Eurasian and global history. A crucial feature of the programme is its interdisciplinary character. [+]

Masters in International Politics. About the Programme A large part of historical studies is conducted as applied research. Using and interpreting historical data enables historian to construct "usable pasts" as a tool for understanding the present and imagining possible and alternative avenues of future development. Applied history embraces methods and practices dealing with identification, preservation, interpretation, and presentation of historical artifacts, texts, structures, and landscapes. In one part of our training we focus on material objects in history and their meanings within the framework of heritage and memory studies. The other part of the training will encompass a critical approach to the politics of circulation of historically formed discourses of identity and legitimacy in present day society. The two-pronged approach to the complex problem of historical legacy and heritage will fill out the gap in professional training in history and provide a platform for creating interactive processes that link the historical object, the historian, and the public. Built on international experience of developing similar programmes, we use methodologies of global, comparative and transnational historical research that facilitate the study of patterns connecting European, Russian, Eurasian and global history. A crucial feature of the programme is its interdisciplinary character. In our view, applied history suffers from insufficient dialogue with research in other disciplines, not limited to other branches of humanities but social and natural sciences, including economics, geography and ecology. For that reason, the programme not only solicits applicants with undergraduate degrees in history, but actively seeks to enroll applicants with... [-]
