Throughout the course, we have considered three key international interests:
Ultimately, each state in the international system will establish goals and objectives concerning their current and future national interests. Each state will also apply appropriate international relations theories to accomplish impending security, identity, and economic interests. State leaders will routinely utilize different schools of thought concerning international relations to meet upcoming threats and opportunities. For example, along with “What should be done?” leaders must identify “who” will do it (i.e., the State, individuals, ethnic, nationalist, or religious groups, Inter-governmental organizations (IGOs), Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs)).
This paper is designed for you to use your critical thinking skills to evaluate potential international relations challenges, apply core international relations theories, and understand how foreign policy is formed and implemented. You will also assess the efficacy of national instruments of power along with the utility of other governmental/non-governmental organizations and international law during the examination of selected future economic, political, military, cultural, and informational trends. Finally, you will develop a recommended solution to plausible international dilemmas.
Throughout this course, we have been discussing the four “alternative worlds” found in the 2012 National Intelligence Council Report,
Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds. For this paper, you will choose one of these “worlds,” that you
