Introduction into International Relations (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Alexandr Burilkov

wöchentlich | Freitag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 16.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 1.209 Seminarraum

Inhalt: The political science discipline of International Relations (IR) is characterized by a high degree of differentiation between competing theoretical perspectives, which political science students can hardly keep track of. This diversity results from constant examination of real-historical changes in the international system as well as intensive (scientific) theoretical examination and adaptation of findings from neighboring disciplines, such as sociology, international law, and political philosophy.

Modern warfare (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Alexandr Burilkov

wöchentlich | Freitag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 16.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 3.121 Seminarraum

Inhalt: This seminar introduces students to contemporary military science by examining the theory of modern warfare since 1945, as well as selected instances of conflict, such as the war in Ukraine, the counterinsurgency in Afghanistan, and the Yom Kippur War, that proved pivotal in the development of military thought in armies worldwide, and therefore have had profound strategic implications for international stability. This is especially relevant as the world continues to move towards multipolarity with the emergence of China as a superpower, which comes with a corresponding increase in tension in flashpoints such as the Indo-Pacific. This seminar encompasses a broad overview of theoretical and empirical studies of modern conflict. It covers both interstate war, such as the war in Ukraine, and asymmetric conflict, such as in Afghanistan, which also is by far the most common form of warfare since 1945. Students will acquire the tools to critically analyse and understand instances of modern conflict in a systematic fashion. Students are expected to engage and develop theoretical explanations, synthetize different theoretical paradigms, and critically assess arguments regarding the application of military thought in the real world.
