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. [+]

Masters in International Politics in Europe 2017. 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?... [-]
