2018/2019


In this course, teams of students will negotiate resolution of one of the current events. The theme of this year's course will be selected by students after the first lecture. The list of topics is attached. The purpose of this simulated negotiation is (i) to understand the obstacles of negotiations of political and economic agreements and (ii) to learn negotiation techniques (iii) to broaden and deepen understanding of the EU affairs.

The course is divided into three parts. Firstly, we start with four lectures introducing the topic, to provide the key information to all participants. The game itself follows. The course is concluded by a follow-up and short essay.

The detailed description of the game is provided in the syllabus. All materials are posted in moodle (course name JEM180 Philosophy, Economics and Politics II: Current Debates).
