Over deze opleiding
Geopolitics has historically been understood within International Relations as the study of space and power, particularly in relation to conceptions of territory. Controversially, it has been assumed by some in the past to be a science that determines order in the world. This track analyses geopolitics from a different angle. It focuses on understanding how spaces are produced as a result of making things connect and disconnect. When the Panama Canal was opened e.g., it transformed existing spatial orders. It changed the terms of who connected, what was to be connected, how would that connectivity take place, at what speed, and very importantly, it radically changed power relations between the north and south of the Western hemisphere, the relations between the American East and West coasts, and global trade across the Pacific.In this track, students are stimulated to think critically about geopolitics by combining cutting-edge theoretical developments in the study of power and space and by understanding the implications of employing different approaches for understanding connectivity such as the network. Courses use an extensive range of contemporary and historical case studies.
