Course aim

The course aims to equip students with the analytical tools necessary for a critical investigation of various forms marginalisation takes in global politics, understanding the factors underlying processes through which marginalisation is imposed, and exploring possible policies aimed at reintegration of targeted actors.


Course content

The course studies the manner in which the behaviour of particular actors is prescribed as being deviant and investigates various policies designed to correct that behaviour at the global level. It explores the fate of individuals, minority groups (religious, ethnic, LGBTQI) and especially states ("failed", "rogues) and policies of regime change, containment, isolation, tolerance or engagement. It centers on historical and current case studies.
