The winter programme provides students with a unique opportunity to learn and think about major global challenges and how these are being addressed by the international community. Special attention will be paid to the role of the United Nations as a tool of global governance.
Lectures and discussions concepts and key issues of peace and security, human rights and humanitarian challenges, international development, North-South relations and the future of global governance.
Classes will meet from Monday to Friday; about 5h30 per day. Three hours in the morning will be devoted to lectures for all participants in the Programme. The afternoon will be devoted to 2h30-seminars conducted in smaller groups of about 15-20 students. Morning lectures will provide students with key concepts and analytical tools, while the afternoon seminars will help students use those tools and apply them to specific empirical situations. Afternoon sessions will also include on-site visits to international organisations and practical exercises such as simulations. Total class time for the course will be approximately 50 hours.
Emphasis on role-playing and social events also enables students to experience multiculturalism and global diversity firsthand. Students will gain knowledge of international challenges and build confidence to interact with people from different cultural backgrounds.
