Transcript Title: INTERNATL RELATIONS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course explores key questions in international relations, beginning with the basic questions of why the world is comprised of states and why they enjoy a monopoly on legitimate violence, and then expanding through a range of questions such as whether cultural identities are responsible for international conflict, whether the concept of ‘human rights’ is a remnant of colonialism, and who really controls the global economy. This course provides an in-depth examination of the ideas and actors that have shaped world politics, and encourages a critical exploration of the politics behind current events in international relations, from environmental agreements to targeted killings by robot planes to indigenous land claims. Students are encouraged to evaluate the theoretical assumptions and debates in international relations and how they influence global politics today.
