Why did the U.S. invade Iraq, how can Human Rights Watch change the world, and who cares about the World Trade Organization? Why are UN peacekeepers getting serious in the Congo, and what’s the logic behind suicide bombing? Why is a global environmental deal so difficult?
Find out in Public Affairs (PA) 5801: Global Public Policy, taught by James Ron. Prof. Ron has worked for the Associated Press, the Red Cross, CARE, and Human Rights Watch, and incorporates insights from those experiences into his teaching.
PA 5801 is recommended for Public Affairs and other graduate students interested in international development, human rights, public health, the environment, and world politics. Advanced undergraduates welcome with instructor permission. The course assumes no prior knowledge of international affairs. Advanced graduate students may, with permission, elect to write a paper, rather than write all of the final exam.
