Skrócony opis:

This course examines the complex relationship between ethics and politics in international affairs. Starting with an overview of different perspectives on the role of ethics and morality in international relations, the course then explores the ethical dimensions of issues central to foreign policy and the study of world politics, including the use of force, human rights, and global distributive justice. This course aims to foster a particular mindset and analytical approach that encourages students to think about applied international ethics in a more rigorous and systematic manner. The goal is to equip students with the ability to apply ethical principles to international phenomena. To accomplish this goal, this course will focus on developing and strengthening student's writing, analytical, critical thinking, and public speaking skills. Upon completion of this course, students will have learned different theoretical approaches to the study of ethics and international affairs, main concepts, and the parameters of key debates. This course will also enable students to identify the strengths and weaknesses of different arguments, perspectives, and viewpoints.
