Welcome to Foreign Policy Simulation!
This first year seminar aims to shed light on US foreign policy, and in particular the policy-making process. Students will have a chance to learn, throughout the course, about the actors and institutions involved in US foreign policy, as well as the factors and influences that shape their decisions. But more than that, students will also have a chance to ’embody’ these same officials thanks to the semester long policy simulation. Through role-playing, students will gain a better understanding of the sort of challenges and dilemmas that policy-makers routinely face.
This semester: the central theme of the policy-simulation will be US-Russian relations.
