This programme focuses on the study of International Relations. This academic field was born as an interpretation of the international system that is made up mainly of nation states. Today, the field of International Relations examines not only the role of states but also that of a variety of international entities, ranging from international organisations and multinational corporations to the civic society and terrorist organisations. In the age of economic globalisation, International Relations also deal with the strong ties that have developed between international politics and the global economy and investigate whether globalisation is leading the world towards a more unified or a more fragmented future.
