Relations between Industrialized and Developing Countries

POLSCI 251S

This is a survey course for students interested in learning about the major issues in international relations between industrialized and developing countries. We will move rapidly through topics such as foreign aid, trade, climate change, peacekeeping, colonial history/legacy, disease, NGOs, migration, fragile states, etc. The objective is for all students to gain a sense of the complexity of issues connecting industrialized and developing states, to understand links across issue areas, to introduce students to scholarship and policy on these issues, and to provide a chance for students to critically engage these issues. Assessment includes writing, tests, and presentations. Instructor: Bermeo
