Le Grand Syllabus 2016/2017
encourage students to develop their critical thinking about the political game in democracy and question their own expectations from politics as citizens. Required reading : Excerpts from : The Republic of Plato, trans. Allan Bloom, Basic Books (1991) ; Excerpts from : Machiavelli, Niccolo, The Prince, trans. Daniel Donno, Bantam Books (2003) ; Arendt, Hannah, Truth and Politics, in Between Past and Future, Penguin Classics (2006) ; Kant, Immanuel, On a Supposed Right to Lie Because of Philanthropic Concerns, Lectures on Ethics (1797).
ﬁlms : 1) The Crucible ; 2) The Story of Qiu Ju ; and 3) a documentary exposing the case of the Armenian Genocide. Students, in teams, will be asked to present case studies in co-teaching teams and then will lead follow-up discussions. This course is highly interactive, so attendance is expected at all classes. Preparation of required readings is critical for making considered choices in the proposed case studies. Participation is vital to exploring peacebuilding skill sets while attempting to ﬁnd solutions to proposed dilemmas. This is a designated writing-intensive course. While this does include some homework writing, more in-class writing time will be dedicated for a good portion of the writing component so as to not overwhelm student workload in comparison to regular level C2 elective courses.

MANAGING CONFLICT, THINKING OF JUSTICE
Semester : Spring Number of hours : 24 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Ronald LYNDAKER (coordinator for language studies at Sciences Po). Pedagogical format : Elective Course validation : 60% Written production : - In-class write-ups and exercises, quizzes, homework (30%) ; - Mid-term (10%) and ﬁnal (20%) simulation position papers. 40% Oral production & participation : - Team co-teaching case presentation (10%) ; - Mid-term (10%) & ﬁnal simulation (20%). Course Description : Learning to limit negative aspects of conﬂict is essential for managing personal professional and career goals. Transforming conﬂict into its positive aspects can increase group effectiveness. Grasping implications of decisions around a given conﬂict and having a handle on the “how to” in negotiating are the ﬁrst part of successful outcomes, and caring about the most just result also means connecting to one's moral mind. That balancing requires thoughtful utilization of conﬂict analysis and negociation-reconciliation skills. Students will, through readings, writing exercises, case studies and simulations, endeavor to acquire knowledge and skills in peacebuilding. As part of identifying and analyzing the complexity of dispute management, we'll also plan to watch in class or as part of assignments, up to 3 294
