In the minor Political Science you learn how power works with regards to important political issues and dilemmas at the local, national, and global level. You will approach questions of war and peace, migration, violent extremism, climate change, and the financial crisis from different theoretical angles. You will learn why some actors are more powerful than others and why patterns of conflict and cooperation between states occur.
