You will learn how to apply these skills to explain today’s key issues, such as uneven economic growth and rising inequality, political violence, civil war and a shifting balance of global economic and political power.The degree programme will equip you with the tools you need to be competitive in a world where strategic thinking is prized and analysis of political risks highly valued. The programme is geared to helping you graduate with the understanding, skills and experience that will prepare you for postgraduate study or careers in a range of governmental, corporate, non-governmental and international organisations engaged in addressing these challenges.Why are some countries becoming democratic while democracy is failing in others? How is political power distributed in different societies around the world? How has globalisation reshaped state and market institutions in different countries?
