Abstract

Teaching International Relations with the help of movies is highly popular nowadays. There is a direct link between ‘fictional’ movies and what we are teaching in International Relations, for example when we think about the James Bond movies or Star Trek. Movies often deal with theories and cases from International Relations and security studies – however, this connection is often more implicit within the movies. Therefore this Panel deals with best practice examples of how movies can help to bridge cases and theories in IR and be an enriching teaching tool. The Panel also offers space for projects that are in process and Papers that deal with the connection between IR theories and movies.
