About

The MA International Relations and Democratic Politics degree offered at the University of Westminster  provides an advanced critical and comprehensive understanding of the forces shaping inter-state relations and global politics.

Overview

Drawing on key theoretical interpretations of democratic politics, the The MA International Relations and Democratic Politics degree offered at the University of Westminster probes into various tenets of democratic thinking (ranging from pluralism and civil society to egalitarianism and human rights), and explores the interplay between theory and practice in old and new democracies and in processes of global governance.

Is democracy a concept limited to a world of territorially bounded national communities? Can democracy still limit power in a global world? How does democratic policy-making operate in the face of complexity? By raising and examining such questions, the course explores the changing and contested understandings of democracy in contemporary thought, as well as its application to the international sphere in our increasingly complex world.
