INTR13-309: Diplomacy: Theory and Practice

Description

As the title of the subject suggests, Diplomacy: Theory and Practice provides students with a rigorous understanding of conceptual and practical issues relating to modern diplomacy. In this subject students first learn about diplomacy then, via a range of innovative and diverse negotiation exercises, get to practice diplomacy. In this practical context, the flagship exercise is a long negotiation role-play that runs for six weeks (in 2015, for example, we designed and ran a mulit-party negotiation simulation based on the tragic Syrian crisis). The aim of such exercises and, indeed, the subject is twofold and unique: to allow students to put theory into practice during a subject and, second, to encourage the participants to think and act like diplomats.
