What we offer: our "Politische Sprechstunde"
Do you have questions about current international political developments and crises? About the dynamics of interstate and civil wars, political uprisings and social upheavals? About the historical background of crises that are manifesting themselves today? Or even about powerful imaginaries of the future and their political potential? If you have such or related questions and are looking for a direct exchange on these themes, then feel free to take advantage of our weekly "Politische Sprechstunde"! Here you will receive background information on the topics you have chosen. In addition, you will receive literature suggestions and insights into ongoing social science debates to get a sense of how diverse such topics can be researched.
If you are interested in a Sprechstunde, simply make an appointment with our Roy Karadag (firstname.lastname@example.org)! We offer these meetings and talks at our InIIS offices, virtually or quite classically over the phone.
What we teach: MA International Relations
The InIIS offers the English-language MA program "International Relations: Global Politics & Social Theory". The two-year program was originally conceived jointly with Jacobs University Bremen and has been reorganized by the InIIS teaching staff since 2022. It draws on a wide range of social science disciplines, topics and methods and provides a multi-perspective insight into the dynamics of global politics and transnational relations. We are particularly proud of the strong social-theoretical embeddedness of the program, which relies on diverse theoretical framings of political processes.
The program offers a theory-based understanding of international politics. With references to normative theories, global political economy, peace and conflict studies, and global history, it gives our students the necessary analytical tools to fathom the everyday life of global governance. It examines globalization processes, international conflict situations, principles of legalization and transnational social activism, doing so from the perspective of international political sociology. Thisl enables our students to actively engage in ongoing international debates on the future of democracy and capitalism, global orders, war and peace, and the power of ideas.
