With a strong tradition of offering courses in globalisation and human rights within the School of Arts and Social Sciences, City, University of London has developed a pioneering approach to International Politics offering a range of module choices for understanding globalisation and international politics in the twenty-first century. Students study the complexities of economic, social and political globalisation that affects the relations of the government and society with other countries. The focus of the modules is on understanding global policy-making on current issues, such as development, the environment, human rights and trade.
