Insurgency and Counterinsurgency (3) In an age of globalization but unequal distribution of economic resources and political power, insurgencies pose one of the greatest challenges to the established order, whether that order is a democracy, monarchy, dictatorship, or theocracy. This course analyzes the historical roots of insurgencies and counterinsurgencies, beginning with the Roman Empire, and assesses the causes, conduct, and consequences of these actions, with an emphasis on applications since World War II. Though military aspects are included, the principal focus is on the political, economic, and social forces that have informed and directed insurgents and those who oppose them. Through an understanding of the history of this complex and often misinterpreted field, students seek to define the issues these movements pose and create a framework to assess the factors that precede their rise and shape their outcome.

History of Global Politics (3) This course provides historical context on change and continuity in the global political system. It examines the rise, fall, and evolution of the political units that have comprised the system, including city-states, empires, and socio-cultural political units such as world religions as well as the modern nation-state and addresses how each of these different forms of political units have affected the practice of global politics across the centuries. The course compares parallel sub-global systems of politics common before the contemporary era of interconnected global politics, particularly politics within the European state system to those in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Finally, the course takes a historical perspective on change and continuity in the variety of actors and organizing structures in global politics to assess how conceptions of global society, norms, and values as well as power and self-interest have shaped peace, conflict, prosperity, and development across history.

After exploring what nationalism is, why it is so powerful, and some of the different explanations of nationalism and identity-formation, the course looks at the role of nationalism and identity in a wide range of political phenomena: insurgency and resistance to occupation, the collapse of multi-ethnic states and empires, civil and international wars, and distinctive patterns of voting and violence. The course culminates in a research or policy paper.

Refugees, Migration, and Trafficking (3) Few issues pose as significant a challenge to states as international migration does, affecting nearly all critical aspects of governance. The myriad ways that immigration and refugee flows affect state interests, both material and idealistic, creates highly contentious politics where domestic interests clash and defining a national interest is an elusive quest for the state. This course offers students a broad overview of migration and refugee dynamics, and identifies those aspects most challenging to state governance. This includes understanding the factors that generate migration and refugee flows, as well as the politics they generate, both international and domestic. The course examines the security implications (broadly defined) of global migration and refugee flows, including defense, homeland security, and economic and societal dimensions. It also considers carefully the human rights implications of these dynamics. The course also examines policy development over the past half-century in a comparative perspective with an eye towards identifying new challenges and generating questions for future research.

Corruption, Security and Development (3) Corruption is a global problem which significantly affects levels of poverty and the growth of political extremism and violence. This course explores the causes and consequences of corruption, especially in developing countries, and evaluates strategies and policies for reducing the level and impact of corruption. The course pays close attention to the relationship between corruption and violence. Recent research argues that pervasive corruption is largely responsible for the formation and growth of terrorist groups and other violent non-state actors suggesting, against current practice, that non-corrupt institutions must be put in place to effectively fight terrorist groups, insurgencies, and warlords. This research also compels us to reconsider the role of international "peacekeeping" forces and multi-national military forces in places like Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

Power and Principle in International Criminal Courts (3) Civilians have comprised half of all war-related deaths over the past three centuries. During what some have called the century of genocide, the global hue and cry for justice continued to grow. A growing global movement for justice gave rise to significant growth in international humanitarian law, resulting in the creation of a number of international criminal courts. This course explores the politics of international criminal courts by examining their emergence during the twentieth century, the factors that shaped their formation, the politics of their design, and their impact on international society. These elements are examined in depth through a study of international criminal courts, including the Nuremberg and Tokyo Tribunals, the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia (ICTY), the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), and the International Criminal Court.

Students study conflict resolution theories and explore debates in the field as applicable to the U.S.-Iran relations and look at new alternatives for dialogue and opportunities for negotiation in the process of reconciliation in a comparative historical perspective. Course includes issues of reform and radicalism, Islam as a political force, Iran's role in regional politics, and the search for new alternatives in cultural engagement and diplomacy in resolving conflict.

Democratization and Political Change in the Middle East (3) This course examines both various aspects of the recent push for democratization in the Middle East and the formidable obstacles and setbacks with which it has been faced. In pursuing its inquiry, the course considers the Middle East's authoritarian structures and their resilience; shifting societal norms and demographics; emerging social movements including women and youth movements; the role of moderate Islamist politics and its relationship with secular political forces; the rise of radical Islamist politics and violence in Iraq, Syria and Libya; and the role of Western hegemony in the region. The course looks extensively at the roots, and trajectories of the Arab Uprisings of 2011 and Green Movement protests in Iran which preceded them, for example by juxtaposing the politics of the Egyptian and Tunisian democratic transitions and the diverging paths towards renewed authoritarianism and significant democratic gains each has taken. Through the course students gain considerable insight into the current predicament and prospects for long-term political change in select Middle Eastern countries and the region as a whole.

Transnational Education: Globalization, Migration, and Education (3) As our world experiences major changes, education, too, is undergoing rapid transformation. Globalization, migration, technological innovation, intercultural conflict, global poverty, and economic crises are shaping and reshaping the nature, meaning, and deployment of education throughout the world. This course considers questions such as how and why nation-states are increasingly relying on education as a tool of statecraft, nation-branding, nationalism, and public diplomacy. By synergizing key interdisciplinary concepts from international relations, sociology, anthropology, critical theory, history, political science, and intercultural communication, the course explores contemporary education as a quintessentially transnational phenomenon with powerful implications that are simultaneously global and local. Drawing from a critical perspective, students examine the actors involved in current educational policy and practice, and consider their interests and relationships. Students also evaluate the impact of this phenomenon for global social institutions, nation-states, communities, and individuals.

Global Health, Culture, and Communication (3) Global changes in migratory patterns, the increasing health inequalities faced by the poor in the United States and around the world, and the health risks faced by communities at the margins of global societies have drawn attention to the relevance of studying culture in order to understand health and health communication processes across global cultures. This course adopts a culture-centered approach to health communication. Using the case study method, the class examines immigrant and refugee populations in the United States and international health case studies to explore why culture matters and the values underlying health communication interventions. Effective and culturally responsive health communication requires an understanding of theoretical perspectives coupled with strategy and creativity to capture the attention of the target audience, convey a health message that resonates with the audience, and ultimately enhance individual, family, and/or community health. To this end, students learn not only important theories in this area of study but also concrete tools, such as how to develop audience-centered health messages, how to design an effective and culturally tailored health communication flyer, and how to analyze and evaluate the key elements of a media health campaign.

Rather than a technical package for dealing with community development issues, the course nurtures analytic skills and learning abilities that can help would-be practitioners reach a critical, empathetic, and practical discernment of the problems faced in the field. The issues covered by the course enhance awareness of multiple aspects and levels of analysis involved in community development.

Leading Social Innovation (3) Introduces the key leadership skills employed by social entrepreneurs, and distinguishes these from those used to manage more stable, ongoing international NGOs. Social entrepreneurs are skilled at destabilizing the status quo by seeing opportunities for change others miss. The components of the enterprise mindset they apply to this task are analyzed through written and live case studies. Best practices for both creating new organizations as well as leading existing ones from marginal positions of low formal power are examined. Common leadership pathologies and the dynamics of followership are also considered, along with leaders' uses of hard and soft power. Students engage in structured reflection on their personal approaches to leadership. The course is highly interactive and focused more on application than theory.

Budgeting for Development (1) A basic understanding of how the U.S. government's budget is managed through the allocation of foreign aid to address international development challenges such as literacy, maternal and child health, good governance, clean water, and food security, is needed to understand how international development works. At a more practical level, an understanding of how to build, manage, and report on a budget is required to work on any development project. In this course students learn the overall framework for how funding is allocated to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), how priorities are set, and how funds make their way to the USAID Mission managing resources at the country level. The course follows the program process within USAID as a guide to understanding how the budget flows down to individual projects and how NGO and for profit implementers use budgets to deliver assistance on the ground. Students learn the fundamentals of how to construct a budget and budget monitoring methodologies, as well as getting hands-on experience in basic budget forecasting and standard budget reporting.

Budgeting for Development (1) A basic understanding of how the U.S. government's budget is managed through the allocation of foreign aid to address international development challenges such as literacy, maternal and child health, good governance, clean water, and food security, is needed to understand how international development works. At a more practical level, an understanding of how to build, manage, and report on a budget is required to work on any development project. In this course students learn the overall framework for how funding is allocated to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), how priorities are set, and how funds make their way to the USAID Mission managing resources at the country level. The course follows the program process within USAID as a guide to understanding how the budget flows down to individual projects and how NGO and for profit implementers use budgets to deliver assistance on the ground. Students learn the fundamentals of how to construct a budget and budget monitoring methodologies, as well as getting hands-on experience in basic budget forecasting and standard budget reporting.

Mediating History (1) Competing interpretations of history play a central role in many inter-state and intra-state conflicts today. Conflict resolution practitioners, however, do not always possess the skills necessary for addressing history directly and constructively. Drawing upon recent studies in collective memory, critical historiography and discourse analysis, as well as the extensive experience of working with historical narratives in conflict settings, the course introduces the participants to practical methods that help transform the role of history from one that perpetuates conflict into one that helps resolve it through building better understanding of the conflict dynamics, mutual identity needs and alternative ways forward.

Evolution of U.S. Human Rights Policy (3) Throughout its history, the attention of the United States to human rights abuses has risen and waned. This course explores how concern for human rights has influenced U.S. foreign policy and raises questions about the consistency and durability of that commitment throughout the Cold War and in the years that followed the Soviet Union's collapse. The course concludes with an examination of contemporary struggles to balance morality and adherence to "American values" with the preservation of national security. The assigned readings and class discussions help students define human rights and assess the American commitment to protect those rights. Also considered is how the geopolitical struggle of the Cold War and domestic politics shaped American concern for human rights internationally and the challenges of combating terrorism and respecting human rights today. To this end, students read important accounts by historians, political scientists, journalists, and human rights activists. The course promotes critical, analytical thinking about U.S. human rights policy and encourages students to develop their own interpretation of the evolution and significance of the American commitment to human rights in the postwar years.

Peace Corps: Bringing the World Back Home (3) Three goals guide the Peace Corps: the first two, assist countries in meeting their needs for trained workers, and promote better understanding of Americans by the people served, are addressed in selecting, training, assigning, and supporting volunteers in host countries. The third goal, bring the world back home, has proven to be far more elusive. Consultancies in this practicum focus on aspects of third goal effectiveness and opportunities within the post-Peace Corps experience. Students work with the Peace Corps agency or the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA), which represents returned Peace Corps volunteers and the entire Peace Corps community. The course reviews the history of the Peace Corps and its diverse programs and examines the Peace Corps in the context of international development. The course is enriched by expert guest lecturers.

The Dangerous Decline of Democracy: What the U.S. Government Should Do (3) According to Freedom House, democracy has been rolling back all around the world. Not a single region of the world has remained untouched. Even nations that had been held up as democratic models have regressed. In many countries, populist and far-right parties with little commitment to civil liberties and democratic norms are gaining in popularity. Some authoritarian governments have witnessed growing clout and, some scholars argue, are even cooperating directly with each other to thwart democracy's progress. In many countries, the middle class, long considered the linchpin to successful democratization, has turned against democracy. This practicum explores why the decline of democracy is happening and develops recommendations as to what the U.S. government can do about it.
