International Relations

International Relations focuses on studying the foreign policies of particular nation-states and the patterns of conflict and co-operation among states. The study and practice of international relations is interdisciplinary in nature, blending the fields of economics, history, and political science to examine topics such as human rights, global poverty, the environment, economics, globalization, security, global ethics, and the political environment.
