We are a group of four students of political science and economics in our final year at Middlebury College.  We started this podcast series and blog to take the ideas we are discussing in class and bring them outside Middlebury and into the larger world.

The goals of this series are to:

  • Discuss what international order is.  How do we know order when we see it?
  • Review theories of international politics and attempt to apply them to order.  What leads to order?
  • Develop our own theories of international order.
  • Investigate evidence from the 20th century.  What can the experience of the 20th century teach us about international order and how to achieve a stable order in the international system?

We hope that this podcast series will be useful to our peers at other institutions, to our own classmates, as well as to anyone with an interest in international relations.
