The aim of this course is to provide students whose internships involve international policy with basic concepts and tools necessary to understand the main choices faced by policymakers in an increasingly globalized world. We will examine how governmental, non-governmental, and supra-governmental actors shape both domestic and international policies. We will focus on specific policy problems, such as economic development, state building and the promotion of democracy. In addition to our readings, I will bring in practitioners from different policy communities to speak to us about their work.
