MSc Digital Politics & Sustainable Development responds directly to processes afoot of power shifts and power diffusion in international relations (IR). These processes are fundamentally changing the organisational structure of IR. This programme responds to questions of agency, action and accountability of governance networks by deploying systems-based approaches.

Contemporary International Relations (IR) faces two main challenges: the first relates to ecological sustainability and the second to digital spaces. Both challenges pose new power shifts, influences and organisational structures in an increasingly interconnected world. These challenges are often regarded separately, however they are both uniquely complex and multifaceted.

The MSc in Digital Politics and Sustainable Development is an interdisciplinary programme, that looks at how these two challenges interact and the unique approaches to tackle them. Drawing on political science, political theory, philosophy, and computer science, you will explore the increasingly urgent phenomena of social activism, fake news, cybercrime, artificial intelligence, and sustainability within a unique and compelling programme.
