Cíle předmětu
The module is conceived to give the students a basic insight into the main theories that emerged during the development of the discipline of International Relations. After the basic introduction to the main concepts in theories of international relations the attention is drawn to those that are embraced as the most important within the discipline of International Relations. Within the lectures, the students are given examples that demonstrate the applicability of the discussed theories to the recent events. The module also presents an overview of both traditional and critical theories and approaches to European integration and their intellectual history. In order to demonstrate today’s relevance of European integration theories, it applies these theories and approaches to current developments, challenges and crises of the European Union. At the same time, the module points out to how these theories and approaches are interrelated with general IR theories.
