Course Description

ONLINE: Political "realists" contend that U.S. foreign policymakers invoke the supposed requirements of a rules-based liberal international order to justify excessive defense spending and military interventions to promote democracy and human rights. Realists claim, however, that we actually live in an illiberal world of competitive power politics, and the best America can do is to avoid overreach abroad while strengthening democratic institutions at home. This course will analyze and evaluate the realist critique of liberal internationalism. Students will be expected to read approximately 25 pages a week and actively participate in class discussions. | Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 15.
