International Relations (IR) is the study of relationships between countries and nation-states. IR considers the roles of states, inter-governmental organizations (IGOs), international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and multinational corporations (MNCs). It is both an Academic and Public Policy vocation, as it seeks to both analyze, as well as formulate, the foreign policy of nation-states. IR is often considered a branch of Political Science but is better described as an interdisciplinary field of study.

Apart from Political Science, IR draws upon Economics, History, International Law, Philosophy, Geography, Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology, and Area Studies. IR studies a diverse range of issues including, but not limited to: globalization, state sovereignty, sovereign risk, ecological sustainability, nuclear proliferation, nationalism, economic development, global finance, terrorism, organized crime, human security, foreign interventionism, human rights and political economy.
