DescriptionBy understanding the international, political, economic and to some extend legal dynamics that shape the world we live in, you are able to critically analyse and understand political and business dynamics and how they influence each other. You learn about international businesses, national and international political institutions and NGO’s and how these different actors cooperate, compete and influence each other in an international environment. You learn to navigate and analyse the ‘grey’ areas between international business, international law and national, regional and international political systems in order to understand contemporary changes in world society.
The integration of international business and politics is central to the programme, but it also covers key aspects of international law.
