Description

We live in a communications-saturated world where 24-hour news, access to the internet and social media have become the norm for many people.

Global events are instantly reported, analysed and interpreted by the media and ordinary citizens. This challenges the traditionally secretive practises of international diplomacy and how governments control information. Focusing on international relations and key developments in information and communication technologies, this course will provide you with the knowledge, methods and techniques to evaluate the interaction between these areas.
