Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to

  • demonstrate knowledge of basic concepts and theories of international policy, as well as knowledge of central international actors, processes and institutions,
  • account for how theories, concepts and institutions arise, and are change, and are interpreted in different historical, political and epistemological contexts,
  • in writing, reflect on and critically relate to phenomena, concepts and theories and, at a seminar, orally account for own lines of reasoning and relate to other students' corresponding achievements,
  • argue for and against, and compare and contrast, different theories of international policy, and apply them on historical or contemporary examples,
  • take a critical approach to arguments and interpretation, from both epistemological, ethical and democratic perspectives.

Course content

The course covers basic concepts and theories of international policy and different historical and contemporary phenomena in international policy, such as the UN system, international security policy and international cooperation.

Teaching and working methods

The course includes lectures where the course contents are introduced and developed. The lectures complement the reading list. The seminars provide an opportunity for discussion and advanced studies of certain parts of the course. The student should be well prepared for the lectures and, in particular, for the seminars. The student should study the reading list independently.

Parts that involve examination are compulsory.

Examination

The course is examined through a written examination at the end of the course and participation in the seminars and a role play.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.

Grades

Three-grade scale, U, G, VG

Other information

Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. 

The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
