This course will discuss diplomacy as a tool to settle international disputes peacefully and promote cooperation among nations. Each class will focus on a historically important international agreement. In each case the lecturer will describe the underlying problem, the objectives of each party, their negotiating strategies, and terms of the agreement. The lecturer will then lead a class discussion on the longer-term impact of the agreement. Participants will be asked to read a short Wikipedia article prior to each class.
