They are designed to introduce the students to the significant trends shaping the world around , to train the students in ways to conceptualise and help them make sense of and situate current events in the proper analytical, historical and global context. Students are encouraged to incorporate such training into the development of practical skills designed to enhance professional opportunities. In an era of unprecedented social and political upheaval the study of international politics and all it encompasses is highly relevant.
