Section Title: Gender and Peace Building
Female power is rising worldwide, at a time when sexual violence is also increasing. Gender is also being redefined, and women's roles in peacemaking, peace-building, and peacekeeping are growing. Research shows females have been challenging unjust authority, brokering peace agreements, negotiating ceasefires, and advancing human rights at enormous personal risks, although their contributions are rarely featured in textbooks or official records. This course explores cutting-edge issues of gender and peace from multiple angles and perspectives. Students engage in active-learning and diverse teaching styles.

Section Title: Great Powers Politics in International Society
What does the end of the dominance that the United States has enjoyed since the end of the Cold War and the return of the great powers mean for international society? This course helps students to unpack and discover the critical role that great power politics plays in ordering international politics. Using empirical instances of great power interactions as a guide, students are provided with the theoretical concepts necessary to understand what great powers are; how they achieve their status; the manner in which they interact with one another; the institutions they design; and the sources and consequences of great power consensus and discord. Students select a famous great power incident and use the concepts from the course to explain it.
