  • How does the policy making process work at the international level?
  • Why are some global problems, such as poverty, so difficult to solve?
  • How might states, international organisations, NGOs and the private sector better cooperate to solve global problems?

Combining the study of international relations with an analysis of public policy formulation and state governance, this programme will provide you with an advanced understanding of how political institutions and processes operate in international politics, and how policy is made. You will be introduced to central issues such as theories of the policy-making process, alongside current themes and issues in international politics.

This programme will:

  • Provide a strong core training in international relations and public policy
  • Allow you to choose from a wide range of option modules that best reflect your interests
  • Develop a strong grasp of the theoretical tools and empirical evidence necessary for an in-depth understanding of policy-making in international politics.
