The Master of Arts in International Studies provides participants with the knowledge and analytic tools to work successfully in an increasingly globalised world, and equips them to exploit the policy and scholarly synergies that result when disciplinary insights are rigorously combined.  The programme provides those students specialising in the stream on International Development with the necessary tools to understand and analyse policy implementation and outcomes in various institutional, political and geographical contexts pertaining particularly to developing countries. For those specializing in the stream on Governance and Conflict, the aim is to equip them to analyse the causes and processes of order (role of international institutions and organizations; the spread of global human-rights standards) and disorder (complex emergencies; civil war) in a world where the international and domestic increasingly intersect.
