International Relations

International Relations is an interdisciplinary subject area which draws upon politics, economics, history, sociology, international law, geography and cultural studies to explore global issues such as conflict, global inequalities, sovereignty and human rights.

International Relations is the study of how political, economic and cultural forces interact to mould relationships between nations. The balance of these dynamics enables peace and trade to be maintained in a complex, globalised world, where pockets of tension can rapidly escalate beyond borders.

International Relations at Lincoln aims to provide a structured way of understanding and influencing the cross-border factors shaping our societies: security, conflict, inequality, development, intercultural understanding and human rights. Students are taught by academics who are currently engaged in research across a range of specialisms including terrorism, gender and sexuality, international political economy, war crimes and genocide, the politics of global health and the European Union. Teaching is driven by the latest developments in the discipline.
