Class Description:
What does the recent U.S. presidential election mean for global politics?

This class introduces graduate students from all disciplines to the study of global politics, with a focus on the likely impact of Trump's victory. We will cover both theory and practice, looking at all parts of the world. Each week, we read a major text on an issue of pressing practical importance - such as relations with China, human rights, climate change, international trade, finance, Mexico-US relations, and peacekeeping - or on an issue of theoretical urgency, such was feminism, realism, and global governance. Most weeks, student presenters will tie the week's reading to one or more policy challenges facing America and the world over the next four years.

The class integrates short instructor lectures, student presentations, and instructor-guided class discussion. Each student will write several memos reacting to the week's readings; offer one 15-20 minute oral presentation on a topic of pressing contemporary importance; pass a computer-based world geography quiz; and write one 15-page paper. At the end of this course, you will have an enhanced understanding of global politics, and the role of the U.S.


This class is strongly recommended for Humphrey School students seeking a concentration in "global" or "international" issues. It is also suitable for graduate students from any discipline interested in world affairs. There are no pre-requisites. Novice and more advanced students will both enjoy this class.
Grading:
20% Class attendance and participation
40% Three weekly memos
40% final paper
pass/fail geography quiz - you must score a minimum of
85% in "strict test" mode on all five of the country quizzes.

Class Description:
Why do states go to war? Can Human Rights Watch change the world? Why is a global climate pact so elusive? What are the effects of currency fluctuations on international and domestic politics? To answer these and many other questions, PA 5801 introduces graduate students to the study of international politics. We cover a bit of theory, but focus mostly on practical examples, drawn from all parts of the world. Specific topics include international and civil wars; peacekeeping; international institutions; domestic politics and international affairs; global investment, currencies, and trade; climate change; human rights; terrorism; and non-proliferation. This class is fast moving, integrating both lecture and discussion in innovative ways. Each student will make one major oral presentation on a policy theme, typically with two or three partners. There are also a series of short, computer-based quizzes, as well as a final exam. At the end of this course, you will have mastered the basic building blocks of international political analysis, while also delving deeply into pressing, contemporary policy concerns. This class is strongly recommended for all Humphrey School students seeking a concentration in "global" or "international" issues. It is also suitable for any graduate student interested in international security, development, human rights, and politics. There are no pre-requisites. Novice and more advanced students will both enjoy this class, as it has sufficiently differentiated material to appeal to learners at all levels.

Course Catalog Description:
Creation of rules, norms, and institutions to regulate global activities. Policy making, from exclusive domain of state to including various nonstate actors. How global policy making regulates interstate, national, and transnational activities. Creation/enforcement of global rules. Applications to international security, political economy, and other topics.
Class Notes:
In PA 5801, students meet once a week to combine local, class-based discussions with international, cloud-based discussions with students in Mexico and Israel. The course examines global policy through the lens of "human security," an approach that focuses on the safety and well-being of the world's most vulnerable populations. In the first half of the course, we situate the human security notion within the broad sweep of international relations theory and global policymaking. We then examine the workings of relevant global actors, including the UN and its agencies, international NGOs, and transnational social movements. Next, we study some crucial global issues in a general way, including development, humanitarian aid, transnational crime, and humanitarian military intervention. In the course's second half, students apply these general lessons learned to concrete policy dilemmas and analysis in Mexico and Israel/Palestine. More specifically, we examine Mexico's brutal drug war, which has led to the death of some 60,000 people over the last six years, and the Israeli siege of Gaza, which has generated enormous international attention and caused substantial hardship among the civilian population. Although this is a graduate class, advanced undergraduates may enroll with instructor permission.
Class Description:
This course introduces global public policy issues to interested graduate students. Advanced undergraduates may also join, with instructor permission. Students meet once a week to discuss topics such as foreign policymaking, security policy, the global economy, human security, human rights, humanitarian aid, international law, development assistance, and transnational crime. A brief review of classic IR theories is included, with real world policy examples. We consider the actions of states, NGOs, and international organizations. Students from partner institutions overseas may join the class discussion through video conferencing technology.
