Module overview

This module provides an overview of the politics surrounding efforts to safeguard and promote human health worldwide. Drawing on ideas and information from within and beyond the discipline of International Relations, it incorporates five overlapping perspectives on risks to human health and opportunities for health improvement: biomedicine, economics, power, security, and justice. The module is informed by ongoing research in the Department of Politics and International Relations (PAIR), and it complements other modules that explore issues of global governance, global ethics, and foreign and security policy.
