Course Description

In order to understand the global issues effecting society, it is essential to gain knowledge of international politics. This course aims to develop students’ understanding of political powers at work and analyse varying political systems. Governments and political figures are ever changing causing delegates to analyse the successes and failures of past political establishments and discuss the current political climate around the globe. Delegates will compare nations where political systems strongly contrast and understand how these decisions can have varying consequences. The course will also provide an historical overview of how political systems have developed and evolved to become modern structures.
