Current Issues in International Affairs

Course director


This course aims at exposing students to a series of key challenges presented and contextualized by those directly tackling them in the international arena. This course aims at providing both a conceptual overview of issues but also at providing a glimpse into the practical and concrete difficulties linked to policy development and policy implementations at the social and institutional levels. This course will expose students to some of the most pregnant issues in international affairs as they related to the public sector as understood and defined in the PMP programme. A number of speakers will intervene in this course. Note that given the position and responsibilities of the speakers, their presence is always conditional on the numerous other priorities on their agenda. But, this has the corollary benefit of allowing us to take advantage of last minute visiting experts.
