  Course Description
How do we know what is a good theory versus a bad theory? This course attempts to answer this question by introducing students to the logic of social scientific theories and their evaluation. Students will be introduced to and analyze international relations theories on topics such as war and conflict, strategic bargaining, deterrence theory, alliances, the democratic peace and terrorism. In studying these issues theoretically, students should improve their analytical skills and also gain an understanding of how both researchers and policy makers use theory to address important issues in statecraft and foreign policy implementation.
