In this session, module chair Richard Heffernan introduces the new core politics module in the Politics, Philosophy and Economics qualification, presented for the first time this October, and explains how it was produced. The module, DD211, explores “what is politics?” and “who does politics?", "where"? and "how"? It also condors how we study politics, whether we are looking at concepts, ideologies, institutions and the interrelationship of the local and the global.
