Islam, Md. Shariful
MetadataShow full item record
Is ‘International Relations’ really ‘international’? How is ‘International Relations’ taught in Bangladesh? Does it represent the contexts of Bangladesh? Or do we just imitate the West? The paper investigates these questions. The aim of the paper is to interrogate pedagogy of International Relations in the context of Bangladesh. The paper argues that International Relations as a discipline is basically about the studies of the ‘big powers’ or the ‘powerful’. The Global South including Bangladesh follows the Global North in case of pedagogy design which needs to be problematized and a pluralistic approach to teaching needs to be developed.
