Spring 2012 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
This course represents a hands-on approach to decision making and diplomacy. It is designed to allow students to take part in diplomatic and decision-making exercises in the context of international political issues and problems. Important historical decisions will be evaluated and reenacted. In addition, more current international problems that face nations today will be analyzed and decisions will be made on prospective solutions. Finally, various modern-day diplomatic initiatives will be scrutinized and renegotiated.
The class will essentially function as a working committee, considering a different problem or issue each week.
Preparations for decisions and diplomatic bargaining will rely both on assigned readings as well as additional outside materials collected by the students. A significant part of the preparations and class activities will involve extensive team work.
The class offers numerous opportunities to make formal presentations of research. The class also offers extensive opportunities for negotiation and decision making.
