Course Syllabus: Rising Powers in World Politics

Instructor: Andrej Krickovic;
Welcome to "Rising Powers in World Politics"!! We are in the middle of an unprecedented shift in wealth and power away from the West and towards the countries of the developing world. How will this dramatic shift in power affect international relations? Are we headed towards an era of increased instability and great power conflict? Or will the rise of the developing world increase economic equality and political representation at the level of global politics?

This class will explore these and other questions through the lens of international relations theory. We will focus on the four major rising powers: Brazil, Russia, India and China (colloquially known as the BRICS), looking at the domestic and international factors that are behind their rise and the impact they have had on major areas of international politics. We will also look at the approaches they take to major 21st Century policy questions, such as terrorism, economic development, climate change, and reform to international financial institutions after the latest economic crisis.

Here are a couple of useful websites that can help you keep an eye on international events related to our class.

 1) The Financial Times' Beyond BRICS blog provides a great source of info on the latest developments in emerging markets.

 (You need to register for the Blog but it is free).

 2) Foreign Policy's website also gives a nice view into how US elite's and policy makers are thinking about the latest developments.

 I particularly recommend Steve Walt's Blog:
