  1. Review for final exam

  2. Structure of essay • Your thoughts?

  3. Structure of essay: My thoughts • Lots to cover: 2 issue areas, 3 theories, 6 tenets • Cover as many tenets as you can cover well, at least • Ensure you • Cover major points • Compare across theories and across issue areas • Show clear knowledge of theories and application • Keep intro and conclusion short • Use headings

  4. My suggested structure • Intro • Focus • Describe facts about Focus: conflict is common in issue 1 but cooperation among people in different countries more common in issue 2; in both issues there is some cooperation among countries • Facts of Issue 1 fit best with focus of Realists while facts of Issue 2 fit better with focus of Feminist/Disenfranchised view; similarities in interstate cooperation fit better with institutionalism • Repeat for A-G-M-O-D • Compare issues: overall, Institutionalism explains more of Issue 1 but Realism plus Feminist theories explains more of Issue 2 • Conclusion

  5. Applications to different issue areas • Security • IPE • Human rights • Environment

  6. Concepts • Security • Conflict, cooperation, harmony • Power • Role of states • Goals of states • Means states use • Roles of institutions

  7. The future of IR • Focus • Actors • Goals • Means • Organizing Principle • Dynamics

  8. Individuals can make a difference • Structure vs. agency as deep theme of course • How to act in small ways that make big changes to structure over time • 1,000s of small decisions each year – bias your decisions toward your goals • Individuals can make a difference • Jody Williams and Campaign to Ban Landmines • Razia Jan: Afghan-born, lives in Massachusetts, provides free education to Afghan girls • Skateistan (min 1-8)
