Political Ideologies

Political Ideologies Course Overview


CEA Partner Institution: Dublin City University
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Primary Subject Area: Law
Instruction in: English
Course Code: LG359
Course Details: Level 300
Recommended Semester Credits: 3


The aim of this module is to provide you with a comprehensive introduction to modern Western political thought as it has manifested in modern political ideologies. This is not a political philosophy class, since it focuses on the main components of ideologies, their cohesiveness and social and political functions. The revival of some ‘old’ ideologies as well as the increasing influence of some ‘new’ ones is a characteristic feature of the twenty-first century. The module begins with the concept of ideology itself, and then treats some of the most important Western political ideologies in turn. Besides some ‘classic’ ideologies (i.e. Liberalism, Conservatism, Socialism), we also discuss some others that have had significant impact in the history of ideas (i.e. Nationalism, Anarchism, Fascism), as well as some ‘new’ ideologies that gained in importance from the 1960s onwards (i.e. Neo-Conservatism, the New Left, Feminism, Islamism). The module seeks to put these into context by considering their social and political practice, with a particular emphasis on their approaches to protest and violence.
