Humans live in a world of scarce, exploitable resources: clean air, potable water, food, medical supplies, money, time, and many other goods that humans depend on are limited. In addition, many of these resources do not respect national boarders or, alternatively, may be adversely affected by the behavior of actors in other countries (e.g., pollution). This poses important public policy problems that challenge traditional notions of national policy autonomy. We examine the fields of economic and environmental policymaking to gain insights into the conditions under which public policy can successfully govern collective resources. Our substantive focus will be on democracy, elections, globalization, climate change, and economic crises.
The specific aims of this course are as follows:
● to familiarize students with key topics in international relations, international political economy, and comparative political economy.
● to provide students with knowledge about international and democratic institutions and how they operate
● to provide an intellectual basis for studying phenomena from different viewpoints
● to improve students’ research skills.

The course seeks to develop or enhance the following key skills:
● Communication: writing clearly and to the point, writing to deadlines, presenting ideas and arguments orally
● Working with others: making/challenging contributions, listening to others, exchanging interpretations, respectful discussions
● Improving learning and performance: discriminating reading, essay preparation, accepting and responding to criticism, developing own opinions
● Information technology: word processing, library searches, use of the internet for research
● Problem-solving and networked thinking: conceptualization of issues, identification and evaluation of research designs, analysis and synthesis of evidence and argumentation, evaluation of the credibility of evidence, assessing the validity of conclusions
