Course Description

The course ‘Issues in international politics’ is a reading seminar of scientific texts. The selection of the topics is quite eclectic, yet each week you read and we discuss texts that present opposing views on questions of international cooperation. These can include issues such as the Euro-crisis, the (non)use of nuclear arms, the so-called democratic peace, and rising hegemons. The course takes the form of a reading seminar in small groups. Therefore, weekly active participation and regular presentations are absolutely required, and constitute the prerequisites to be able to hand in a paper at the end of the semester.

Required readings: (all available in the electronic library of the University, via VPN connection; in case of book chapters, available on Blackboard)
