COURSE PREREQUISITES: There are no prerequisites for this course.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: Where does the will to engage in armed
conflict come from? How are decisions made to fight or collaborate with others?
Why are some states more prosperous and healthy than others? This course
answers these questions by studying various dimensions of conflicts, decision
making, institutions, international law, human rights, the environment,
economic collaboration, and the proliferation of weapons. This course promotes
experiential learning through group work, student presentations,
research/writing, and participation in a UN simulation.
