Described by commentators as a year of triumphs and setbacks, 2015 was undoubtedly a tumultuous year in International Relations.

Whilst there were many contenders, amongst those that clearly dominated the global landscape were the Trans Pacific Partnership, Democracy in Asia and the European Refugee Crisis. Moreover, these same events, by no means transient, continue to grow ever important today.

Join the IRS as we explore some of 2015's and 2016's most topical issues in International Relations, with an outlook into what each of these holds for 2016.
