This Geopolitics, Resources and Territory MA is a unique multidisciplinary programme that has a dual focus on the territorial and resource-related aspects of inter-state relations, bringing together the legal side of things in as much detail as the social sciences. It delivers research-led teaching on critical and fundamental questions relating to international boundaries, sovereignty disputes and environmental geopolitics. This is supplemented with teaching and guidance from leading external practitioners in the field of international dispute resolution and environmental management
You’ll study a topic that has been taught at King’s for 24 years. This MA programme draws on the wealth of experience of its successful predecessor, the Geopolitics, Territory and Security MA, which has produced alumni in the fields of international civil service and diplomacy, international law, academia, NGOs and specialised political and security risk agencies.
You’ll be taught by leading academic specialists with extensive policy networks and experience and practising international lawyers to gain an understanding that goes above and beyond traditional international relations perspectives. You won’t just learn about geopolitics - you’ll study the causes of international strife, the consequences of it, and the solutions.
