This track unpacks the mechanics and distribution of power. Are you interested in what causes persistent inequalities in the world? Do you want to understand the growing loss of confidence in the world’s leadership, or the rise of populism? What issues affect the future of democracy or the EU? What are the different types of government?

This specialisation looks at institutions, power, democracy and representation. It provides tools to analyse the ways societies are organised politically and how this afects the provision of policies and the distribution of wealth and resources. This will bring you to an understanding of how these dynamics drive inequalities within and between societies, the unequal distribution of power and representation, the difference democracy may make, and how this impacts the way decisions are made and their impact on society. The specialisation gives particular attention to how national decisions have spill-over effects beyond national boundaries may affect the international order as a whole.
