This is a course on theory, specifically theories of international politics. World leaders are continually confronted with a variety of circumstances and problems that must be addressed through the practice of statecraft and the implementation of foreign policy. This course seeks to develop an understanding of where those problems come from, what forces lead to them, and what forces influence and constrain the solutions decision-makers employ to address them.
