The World Economy and International Affairs faculty is a research and education centre focusing on the global economy, international relations, and oriental studies. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to the subjects allows the Faculty to reflect their real-life interdependence. Economists receive basic understanding of international relations, culture, and people's value systems. International Relations specialists benefit from an introduction to economics and applied mathematics. Both groups graduate from the BA course with a good grasp of two foreign languages. Asian Studies students not only study the languages and cultures of Asia, but also the economics, politics and entrepreneurial culture of the region.

How will the socio-economic and military disruptions of the fourth industrial revolution impact great power cooperation and competition? Accelerating advancements within automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, neurotechnology and biotechnology will have revolutionary influence over all aspects of human life. While some experts predict that humanity will find a common purpose and unite as a global civilisation, others predict human extinction as neither the domestic nor international system are prepared for the new technologies. The exponential rate of changes is presenting both challenges and opportunities for great powers in terms of social cohesion and mobilising economic and military resources in the competition for power and security. How are manufacturing and global value-chains affected? Can capitalism function as the balance between capital and labour unravels? Will the immense societal disruptions eviscerate political stability? How do the new technologies alter the offence/defence balance in warfare? What will be the role of the state during this great transformation? A technological security dilemma becomes evident as a cautious and responsible approach towards adopting new technologies is not possible as history demonstrates that falling behind on industrial revolutions severely disrupts the balance of power.
