POL 216 - International Conflicts

(Previously IST216)
Examines the theoretical and practical aspects of international conflicts in the “global” era. By applying the method of comparative analysis and the “case study” approach, the course will examine how conflicts arise and evolve, and how technological, institutional, and cultural effects of globalization make international conflict more complex and less manageable. A special focus is on conflict prevention and settlement, and peace-making processes. The course also compares international negotiation styles and practices, including negotiations with terrorists. Satisfies the Global Issues General Education requirement.
