This course may count toward the Global Liberal Studies major or minor to fulfill a requirement. There are no prerequisites.
Amid these challenging times of economic and political upheaval, are we seeing the end of liberal world order? This course introduces students to the ideas that underpin the liberal order, with a focus on some of the key institutions that entail it. Along the way, we will explore some of the major theories in international economics and international relations that provide foundations to these ideas, unpicking points of contention within the theoretical debates to help inform our understanding as to whether and why the liberal order might be in crisis.
The course is structured in such a way that throughout it students will be challenged to think critically about whether it is possible and/or desirable to reverse this so-called fading trend and in so doing will consider what a future liberal world order that is fit for purpose might look like, as well as what might replace it if indeed it cannot or should not be fixed.
