Course summary

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? Ask the hard questions and unearth the complex answers in this engaging masters programme. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.

The International Public Policy course can be studied flexibly online at Masters, Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip), or Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) level.

It combines the specific theories, concepts and cases of public policy with international relations studies to ensure you gain a firm grasp of the decision-making and implementation processes involved in international public policy.

During this course, you'll explore the development, possibilities and limitations of international policy-making, including cooperation issues, the impact of international law and norms, and the role of international organisations and non-state stakeholders in policy-making.

  • Close to the heart of UK politics, the School enjoys close links to practitioners in London
  • Investigate development issues, with an interest in the comparative analysis of policy for the developing world
  • Focus on political theory and British politics whilst also having a strong international and comparative element
