Global Sustainable Development requires a global political dialogue. Understanding key political concepts, ideologies, and practices of national and international governments is essential for providing solutions for sustainable development. Your studies will lead you into testing questions. Why do states marginalise human rights in place of geopolitical aims? Why has water and food security become a critical foreign policy consideration for national governments? Why does political gridlock on a national and international level frequently emerge in discussions about climate change? By combining PAIS with GSD, you will be seeking to answer these questions, combining theoretical and analytical approaches from Politics with the interdisciplinary outlook of GSD.
