Featured Course: International Negotiation
We live in a complex global environment, characterized by state actors, non-state actors, and transnational issues and forces. In POLI/GLBL 483: International Negotiation, students will work on contemporary case studies, including the Iran Nuclear Negotiations, the US-Cuban Rapprochement, and the Global Climate Talks. The exploration of negotiation as a high stakes game will feature conceptual material on issue salience for multiple stakeholders, the influence of public opinion and media agenda-setting, and the challenges of protracted conflicts to diplomatic resolution. This hands-on course features a multi-party negotiation simulation on the involvement of Shell Oil in the Niger River Delta.
