    The course objective is the historical study of international relations and strategic approaches among the member-states of the international system. More specifically, the course deals with the framework of international community from its very beginning till the modern transnational international system. The study of this discipline focuses on the evolution of international relations and strategy from Ancient Mesopotamia and Ancient Greece, through the Empires (Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman), then through Europe of the Middle Ages and until the transnational system that was created with the Peace of Westphalia. Furthermore, the course objective provides answers concerning the institutions and codes of conduct among international actors on which political groups attempted to frame and develop the types of relations that connected them. Last but not least, the disciplinary field incorporates meanings such as: international community, international systems, state actors, strategic choices, competition and sovereignty, independence, empires and hegemonic powers.

    The course objective is to clarify the function of international systems in the scope of the historical evolution of international community as well as of the formulation of strategy by the actors of the international systems. The historical knowledge of the evolutionary process of international relations and inter-state conflicts will assist to the understanding of historical structures that run through the international systems. It is essential to examine the various models of relations among states for the understanding of their special characteristics and the advantages each one provides. Furthermore, the course aims at the clarification of basic notions of thehistory of international systems and the state strategies in general, but more specifically, the notions concerning the study of the field, as described above. Special emphasis is placed on the phenomenon of uncertainty of nations between their will for independence and sovereignty on one hand and the promotion of a global community of cooperation on the other. The comparative analysis of case-studies throughout international history leads to conclusions that help understand the function of international relations as well as the ability to foresee the future model of the international community.

The classification system applied is based on the institutional characteristics of their political systems (e.g. political systems with one or two legislative bodies, federations or unitary states, political systems with written Constitution or Unwritten Constitutionalism). Subsequently, political systems that diverge significantly from contemporary liberal democracies are examined (e.g. political systems of East Asia, New Democracies, Islamic regimes, military regimes). In order to facilitate the comprehension of the latter category, the analysis incorporates also economic and cultural dimensions.

We will see that in specific sectors the European Treaties required explicitly the development of common policies, whereas for other activities it was the whole multinational integration process that was geared towards a policy formulation. The various legal foundations of the main sectoral policies certainly account for their dissimilar development; but so do as well the different requirements that the Member States set for those policies during the stages of the customs union, the common market and more recently the economic and monetary union.

    The main purpose of the course is the detailed study of the concept of strategy and of its evolution from the era of Thucydides to our Post-Col War era.

    The course examines thoroughly basic concepts of strategy (strategy, grand strategy, direct-indirect approach, deterrence-compellence/coercion, warprinciples of war, security dilemma, annihilation-exhaustion, attack-defense, escalation, crisis-crisis management, attrition-maneuver etc.). Moreover, it takes place a presentation of the historical evolution of strategy that includes:

    • The holistic study of the strategy of Athens and Sparta during the Peloponnesian War, according to Thucydides
    • The strategic thought of important figures of strategy (Sun Tzu, Napoleon, Jomini, Clausewitz)
    • The evolution of strategic thought in East, Byzantium and Western Europe)

    Furthermore, specific issues are examined:

    • The issue of leadership via the study of history (mainly during the World War I & II)
    • Seapower (Alfred Thayer Mahan, Corbett, Sir Julian S.)
    • Geopolitics
    • Air Power theorists (Douhet, Mitchell, Boyd, Warden)
    • Nuclear Strategy
    • Guerrilla Warfare

    The examination of strategy is not restricted during the study of history (especially in Ancient Greece, World War I & II, and during the Cold War), but it also reaches our era. Nowadays, we study the strategy of the only superpower left (U.S.A.) and the rest great powers, in Iraq, Afghanistan, during the recent crisis in the Middle East and Africa. Finally, based on the study of history, we try to compare the strategies of the main actors of the international system in the past (city-states, nation-states) with the strategies of the great powers of our era, taking into consideration the unity of strategic thought.

  • The purpose of the course is to inquire the causes of rise and fall of the hegemonic powers into the international system and the various behaviors observed throughout history. The mechanisms that led a country of leading technology, strong organization and apt bureaucracy to decline and the circumstances of its rehabilitation are analyzed through a flashback to the five thousand years of China’s history.

We analyze the factors of emergence of China in the global economy and how it affects the global economic structures. We examine the network of economic relations of China with Southeast Asia and Africa. We study the energy policy of China. The consequences of the rise of China in the modern global system are pinpointed in parallel with the morals that can be drawn out of the case of China and applied for Europe and Greece. The politics in the era of Mao (as Great steps ahead, “let a thousand flowers blossom”, Cultural Revolution) is compared to the era of modernization reforms during the last thirty years. The relations of People’s Republic of China with the USA, the EU, Russia, India and Japan and the special national affairs of China (Taiwan, Tibet, Muslim populations, Inner Mongolia) constitute a core subject of the course.

The first is referred from the establishment of American state until the end of World War II and the second from 1945 until today. Specifically, in the light of the central questions of international relations theory, the course examines the way of the American state, which led to the subsequent enlargement of its borders, the strengthening of central government power, the factors that shaped the unique policy of 'isolation' and the factors that led to a more active participation in international politics culminating with participation in the first and second World Wars. Next, in the light of the same basic central questions the course examined the route of U.S. strategy in the postwar period. More specifically, the subjects are examined are as followed: the U.S. alliance after 1945, American nuclear doctrine and its evolution from the Hiroshima until today, the Cold War and the U.S. strategic relationship with the other superpower, the postwar geopolitical and geostrategic considerations of U.S. national strategy and its transformation, the strategic requirements of the Euro-Atlantic axis before and after the Cold War, the Atlantic Alliance and the strategic doctrines as well as the evolution and promotion of American national strategy from 1990 until our days on the Atlantic Alliance. Finally, within the historical reference to the American presidencies the course analyzes the American strategic doctrine after World War II.
