In this master's specialisation you will cover various aspects of global governance from multiple perspectives.

To study international organisation (IO) is to study the norms, rules, and institutions that (are designed to) shape relations between states and contacts across state borders, and how they affect people's lives, the destiny of nations, and the fate of the planet. As a student of IO, you learn to apply a wide range of theoretical perspectives and research methodologies to the analysis of these institutions and the politics that surround them.

You will take an in-depth look at issues of war and peace, intervention and conflict resolution, political economy (trade, finance, development), human rights, and environmental sustainability. You will develop a clear understanding of the agendas and behaviour of governments and other state actors, intergovernmental organisations (such as the United Nations), regional organisations (such as the European Union or the African Union), and non-state actors such as NGOs and multinational corporations. And you will be stimulated to think like a social scientist and acquaint yourself with the discipline's tried and tested methods and theories.

You study in one of the most highly ranked departments of its kind in Europe. Your lecturers are scholars from many countries with expertise in various areas of political science.
