    The Course examines the means and mechanisms through which states and international organizations aspire to communicate their policies and their identity to different audiences. The latter can either involve domestic publics or wider international audiences. The module analyzes historically the role of communication strategies not only in domestic politics but also in international relations. It makes an introduction to 'strategic communication' as it has evolved in recent years through the practice of certain governments and international organizations. The Hellenic paradigm is presented through an analysis of the efforts by the Hellenic Government to orient a national communication strategy. In addition, the efforts of the European Union and other international organizations to establish an effective public diplomacy and communication strategies will be discussed. The course proceeds with a comparative analysis of public diplomacy of certain governments, focusing on the mechanisms and policies around 'nation branding', which in any case comprise constitutive elements of a state?s national strategy.

    The course focuses on the study of certain international phenomena, which are related to the composite character of security and analyses their political and economic impact on state?s behavior and the activities of international organizations. The study of the concept of security and the different nuances it can take is the main objective of this module. In particular, it examines international phenomena such as: the management of energy sources and the consequent state?s competition in the name of their energy security, dysfunctional or failing states, maritime piracy, international organized crime, and climate change. An analysis of those challenges shows that they have a political and economic impact on states and they considerably affect their behavior. Frequently, confronting those challenges evolve into the major pillars of states? foreign policy. States strive for the maximization of their political and economic power but at the same time recognize the importance of international cooperation to address those challenges. This module, examines not only states? antagonism but also the mechanisms of international cooperation aiming at addressing those challenges which threaten not only international, but also national and human security.

    Εξετάζονται θέματα και έννοιες της στρατηγικής σκέψης, όπως στρατηγική, δόγμα, στρατηγικά, συμβατικά και διαστημικά οπλικά συστήματα, αποτροπή, έλεγχος των εξοπλισμών, κλπ. Ως κύριο στόχο έχει την εξοικείωση και, κυρίως, την κατανόηση των εννοιών. Γι αυτό και εστιάζει στο φαινόμενο της κούρσας των εξοπλισμών από την περίοδο του Ψυχρού Πολέμου, τα δόγματα και τα επιχειρησιακά σχέδια των ΗΠΑ και της ΕΣΣΔ, καθώς και τη σχέση μεταξύ της κούρσας και του ελέγχου των εξοπλισμών.

    THE EUROPEAN UNION IN THE INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM

    The purpose of the course is to examine the external relations of the European Union and assess its role as a reliable international actor in a transformed international system. In light of the theories of European integration, the course analyses the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), including the mechanisms and agencies through which it is materialized. The operational aspect of CFSP is also analyzed. EU relations towards specific geopolitical sub-regions as well as international organizations are also examined. Specific provisions of European treaties including the Constitutional Treaty are analyzed in order to evaluate the evolution of EU's role in the international system. Relations with the US and NATO are evaluated through the prism of transatlantic relations.
