Description

The sovereign state system is the fundamental institution of modern world politics. In this course, we will study its evolution over the last 500 years as the result of the interaction of four processes: international competition and cooperation, economic growth, the internal development of the state, and the relationship of Europe to the rest of the world. We will consider key moments in the development of the system, its legal principles, and how those principle shape world politics.

This course is in the World Politics Subfield.
