M.Phil in International Relations

With immediate effect

1 In Examination Regulations, 2008, p. 538, after l. 24 insert:

'(n) Global Institutional Design. The Option examines the question of what analytical approaches best explain global institutional design and change in a broad range of issue-areas, including trade and money, human rights, the environment, and security. The term "institution" is broadly defined here and includes not only governance arrangements but also regulation, policies, and norms. The option will also explore new research findings of interest not only to theorists in international relations but also to policy-makers struggling with the issue of how to design effective and fair transnational institutional arrangements in a wide-range of issue-areas.'

2 Ibid., l. 25, delete '(n)' and substitute '(o)'.


2 Continuing Education Board

Undergraduate Advanced Diploma in Computing

With effect from 1 October 2009
