Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course explores how modern diplomacy and negotiation can effectively address seemingly “intractable” international conflicts and overcome barriers to agreement in civil wars, interstate conflicts, and in trade and finance. Each section of the course looks at a small number of abstract theoretical arguments or discussions, and a handful of more concrete applications of those theoretical ideas to specific historical episodes. The course consists of the two educational elements. Theoretical part focuses on understanding, assessment, and application of various theoretical lenses for explaining bargaining strategies, processes and outcomes. It includes such fields as evolution of the institution of diplomatic norms and practices, the nature of bargaining “power” in international politics, basic game theoretic and rational choice accounts of negotiation, theory of conflict and conflict diplomacy. The second. Practical part includes foreign policy analysis practices, case studies and simulation games which allow students to advance and use their negotiation skills
