The purpose of the course is to introduce students into the various aspects of international negotiations and the problems faced by the negotiators in the international, especially multilateral setting. In sum, we try to understand the process of the emergence of cooperation among states. The theoretical dimension of this problem is covered with the use of the bargaining theory as well as other approaches. We discuss several topics key to the process and success of international negotiations, such as the relationship between international negotiations and domestic politics, the role of negotiation coalitions, or the problem of the negotiations' complexity. The theoretical and readings-based component takes up approximately one half of our time and of the workload connected with the course. The other half is taken up by a simulation of multilateral (trade liberalization) negotiations that runs throughout the semester (see below for more details). The purpose of the simulation is 1) to illustrate the concepts and theories discussed in the course and to provide students with a direct experience of the challenges of (multilateral) negotiations.

The specific objectives of the course are:

  • to help students understand the nature of international negotiations of the challenges the negotiators face
  • to outline and discuss the theoretical and conceptual tools the discipline of international relations have developed to address international negotiations
  • to enable students to experience the problems discussed theoretically with use of a simulation based on a real-world example
  • to motivate students to study the subject matter further

Seminars have two parts:

  • a lecture and discussion component summarizing the key theoretical and conceptual insights relevant to the topic
  • a simulation component, in which the simulated negotiations are conducted (from class 2 onwards)

Successful completion of the course requires first and foremost active participation and interest in the subject matter. On the formal level, this means you will need to:regularly attend the seminars

  • for each class, read carefully all the required readings and answer the questions on the course Moodle site (in total 25% of the grade)
  • do the problem sets and quizzes (available on the course Moodle site) that help you understand and familiarize yourself with the material covered in each of the classes (in total 25% of the grade)
  • take active part in the simulation of multilateral negotiations we will conduct during the classes as well as between them, report on the negotiations as requested, and try to reach in the negotiations as valuable an outcome as possible (see below for more details, in total 50% of the grade)

Note that there is neither a test, nor a seminar paper. Please understand that this will be (more than) compensated by the substantial workload throughout the semester, so your final grade will build up over the entire course in a very cumulative manner.

The following grading scheme is applied:

  • 100-91: A
  • 90-81: B
  • 80-71: C
  • 70-61: D
  • 60-51: E
  • 50 or less: F (fail)
