International relations is a field of political science that studies relationships among countries, the roles of sovereign states, inter-governmental organizations, international non-governmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, and multinational corporations.

The scope of international relations comprehends globalisation, diplomatic relations, state sovereignty, international security, ecological sustainability, nuclear proliferation, nationalism, economic development, global finance, as well as terrorism and organised crime, human security, foreign interventionism, and human rights.
