This course examines the effects of race, gender and ethnicity on different aspects of international relations. Although generally under-emphasized, these three factors often exert significant influences on a variety of global issues. Race often plays important roles in immigration policies, supranational integration, and foreign military interventions. Similarly, ethnicity often impinges decisively on the outbreaks and resolutions of internal wars, secessionist conflicts, and major human rights abuses. Meanwhile, gender often significantly affects international economic production, human trafficking, and global labor migrations. In addition, gender, race and ethnicity (often in conjunction with other ideational factors) play important roles in global civil society movements, conflicts between international and traditional norms, and the politics of international organizations. This course analyzes these and other related topics theoretically and empirically by investigating various recent cases in international relations. Dist: INT; WCult: CI.
