European School of Economics
Campus Full time August 2017 United Kingdom London USA New York Italy Rome Milan Florence Spain Madrid + 7 more

The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of foreign affairs and introduce you to the fundamental principles of international relations within the political science framework. [+]

Best Course Studies in Political Science 2017. Welcome to Global Diplomacy at ESE The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of foreign affairs and introduce you to the fundamental principles of international relations within the political science framework. These principles will serve as the foundation for more advanced study in the International Relations field and will help you not only develop the critical thinking skills you need in order to analyze conflicts between states but the human realtions skills you need to proactively avoid them. The difference between international relations and global diplomacy is that while traditional international relations is a study from afar, diplomacy will prepare you to actively pursue a solution. Diplomacy, in its purest form is not the art of prevailing over one’s rivals to make change, but the orchestration of perfection of communication skills to build understanding and harmony in the world as it is. The creation of a more harmonious world depends on the individual, his level of responsibility, his creativity, his ideas, his vision. Course Delivery Course Participants will have 2 of the following three modules in addition to their choice of two modules from the available business and management courses available. E Business and E Commerce and International Business Decision Making are shown here as they have the broadest application spectrum, but students are encouraged to chose based on already aquired skills and aspirations. DIPLOMATIC METHODS AND EXTERNAL POLICY Course Outline Modern states and quasi-governmental organisations face an increasingly technical and complex agenda in the course of conducting their foreign policy. This course is concerned with the way in which states conduct their business internationally and their foreign policy. The overall aim is to provide students of politics, management and others practical and analytical insights into the problems and issues arising from the organisation, representation, negotiation, treaties and multilateral diplomacy of modern states and quasi-governmental organisations. Seminars will cover organisation of foreign ministry and negotiation methods. Case studies will be drawn from past, present and potential future trouble spots such as the Yugoslav conflict, Gulf Way and Middle East issues. Diplomacy is a vital element in the world's mutual survival. Course Delivery and Assessment The course covers lectures and reading from texts, supplementary books and newspapers and periodicals with the possibility of audio-visual methods and guest speakers. Two exams will cover written assessment, each of 40% with no more than 20% assigned to oral assessment. ECONOMICS OF WORK, LEISURE AND CONSUMPTION Focus is on the role of work, leisure and consumption in the economy in Italy, Europe and globally. Topics include the historical evolution of work and working hour, modern organisations, the sexual division of labour and "women's role", the recent rise in work time. Alternative consumption models such as relative income, additional and permanent income are covered. Ecological critique of consumption is discussed as well as future possibilities in the transformation of structures of work, leisure and consumption. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS This course is designed to give the participants insight into the principle actors in the international relations scenario. Students will be introduced to the principle theories and approaches that govern the study of international relations today. When possible, students will also be encouraged to attend lectures, seminars and presentations outside of school which may provide useful information and background material to deepen the interest and understanding of this fascinating subject area.

ALA Model African Union Course

African Leadership Academy
Campus Full time 5 days March 2017 South Africa Honeydew

African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) is a simulation of the African Union, providing a platform for young leaders to explore the inner workings of the African Union, and to practice international diplomacy by assuming the roles of African leaders. [+]

About us African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) is a simulation of the African Union, providing a platform for young leaders aged 14 to 19 to explore the inner workings of the African Union, and to practice international diplomacy by assuming the roles of African leaders. This conference affords delegates the opportunity to study complex African issues, understand the interests and positions of African countries, and learn to successfully negotiate without compromising national interests. ALAMAU aims to empower young leaders to model international cooperation while celebrating diversity and promoting pan-African unity. ALAMAU 2015 will be held from March 18-22, 2015 as young leaders attempt to resolve, in five days of intense brainstorming and negotiations, some of the longest-running and most complicated issues on the continent. The conference experience will, however, not be limited to committee sessions; through keynote presentations by African Union officials and foreign policy experts, a diplomatic roundtable featuring ambassadors from several countries, educational tours to historic sites and a celebration of cultural diversity through the Cultural Night, delegates will experience a highly intellectual, educative and exciting conference. There will also be a parallel conference for international educators accompanying students to the conference, as they will be exposed to presentations by several thought-leaders in Africa, and engaged in peer learning geared towards developing the next generation of diplomatic African leaders. Building on a successful inaugural conference in April 2014 on the theme ‘Shared Challenges, Common Solutions’, delegates to ALAMAU 2015 will focus on ‘Moving from Potential to Action’. Africa has long been identified as a gold mine of opportunities, yet conversations often dwell too strongly on the continent’s potential without implementable action plans or definite steps taken to ensure the continent’s development. With the continent’s youthful population, abundant natural and human resources, and the rapid growth of our local economies, Africa is indeed ready to take off. This conference provides a unique opportunity for young leaders to develop strategies to enable us utilize our vast resources to achieve holistic human-centred Pan-African growth. ACTIVITIES AT ALAMAU 2015 Committee Sessions At ALAMAU 2015, seven organs and subsidiary bodies of the African Union will be simulated. Each committee session will last for three hours and will mainly include speeches and caucus negotiations, ultimately culminating in a resolution drafted to solve the issue for which the committee was convened. Prior to the conference, delegates would have studied widely on their assigned countries and topics, ensuring that they make well-informed recommendations that will promote development across the continent. Diplomatic Reception & Roundtable Delegates to ALAMAU 2015 will be drawn from several countries within and outside Africa; therefore as part of their diplomatic experience at ALAMAU, they will be afforded the opportunity to interact with and learn from several African ambassadors in a cocktail reception. The ambassadors will subsequently engage in a roundtable discussion to e realities of international diplomacy. Faculty Advisor Speaker Series Each delegation to ALAMAU 2015 will be accompanied by a faculty member, who might be a teacher in the humanities or one who maintains significant interest in international affairs. Educational Tours South Africa is home to several historic and educational sites including the Apartheid Museum and Cradle of Humankind. As part of the conference experience, delegates and advisors will have the opportunity to visit some of these historic sites, affording them a good break from intense committee sessions, while providing an opportunity to strengthening friendships. Cultural Night Considering the diversity of nationalities and cultures that will be represented at ALAMAU, delegated will be engaged in a celebration of all represented cultures at our Africa-themed Cultural Night. Participants will witness a fusion of music, food, fashion, dance, drama and poetry that highlight the uniqueness of different cultures from all regions of Africa. [-]
