In this course, students negotiate a resolution of one of the current events. The topic is voted in the first week of the semester by the students from a list provided by the instructors. The purpose of this simulated negotiation is (i) to learn negotiation techniques (ii) to understand the obstacles of negotiations of political and economic agreements and (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 negotiation follows. The course is concluded by a follow-up and short essay.

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