This course explores the different ways in which International Relations field analyzes the
constitution of a global society. Students will read and review ten different books offering
different perspectives on the topic. From Realism, which sees the world as one of states, to the
English School which emphasize the normative dimension of the “international society” (of
states), to liberal and Marxist approaches, and finally to the contribution of historical sociology.
