This course aims to give you an understanding of how those decisions are made and encourages you to take an in-depth look at issues such as conflict resolution, democratisation and development, and systems of governance.

Politics will appeal to you if you have an interest in power, government, policy-making, social movements, debating ideas; understanding wars and conflict resolution, and the impact of globalization and world events. Throughout your degree, we will cover political concepts around these issues and more, comparing our own government, its policies and decisions, with those of others around the world.
