Kommentare/ Inhalte:
This seminar critically examines the historical and conceptual foundations of the disciplines of International Relations and Security Studies from the perspective of Global International Relations (Global IR) project. In the past years, both disciplines have come under increasing criticism for being "Western-" or "Euro"-centric, for not including the multiple perspectives of scholars from the Global South into the core curricula of the discipline, and for focusing to a disproportionate extent on issues of interest to primarily Northern audiences. In response to this critique, a global group of leading scholars from both fields have proposed rethinking international relations from a theoretical perspective that takes account of cultural diversity that is enacted by a plurality of stakeholders.

Over the course of the seminar, we will discuss the core tenets of the emerging debate on Global IR and examine recent efforts to pluralize and diversify knowledge production about the international order, and international security orders, in particular. In the seminar's first part, major theoretical debates are introduced and discussed. In its second part, and based on the idea of 'problem oriented learning' (POI), students work in small groups to prepare theory-led presentations of research problems that emerge as particularly relevant in the context of our debates. The presentations will help students to frame and focus on their MA dissertation proposals which stand to be detailed throughout the second semester of this two-semester MA seminar.
