This unit challenges you to put yourself in the shoes of a diplomat and negotiate a multilateral agreement at the United Nations. The unit explores the nature of diplomacy in a globalizing world and investigates the forms and effectiveness of a range of political and policymaking efforts to address current issues in world politics.
Throughout the unit, students work in small groups representing an assigned nation to establish a national position on a number of key issues and negotiate with other groups. These diplomatic efforts culminate in the Model United Nations Summit towards the end of the unit.
The unit will be delivered via a series of lectures, workshops and participation in a Model United Nations Summit (on-campus or online).
