special emphasis on “What military conditions are most conducive to enduring peace”. At the end of the course, based on a ﬁctional scenario involving real world countries, the students will be led into producing a “Political-Military Estimate”, developing “Strategic Military Options” and “Operational Courses of Action”, thus allowing for intimate understanding of the use of military force at practitioner level. The ﬁrst half of the course will be mostly theoretical/historical, leading gradually into a “hands-on” format where the students are taking the role of staff members at Ministry of Foreign Affairs discussing potential military options.

Course Description : Economic data are released on a day-to-day basis, and are processed by people in real time. This course will show you how to process this dataﬂow from a practical perspective. We will download data, transform data, and work with basic economic relationships in Excel. You will work on writing simple notes, such as the ones used in policy and private institutions. An important emphasis will be made on the use of charts. What do we expect for growth and inﬂation going forward ? What does this mean for monetary and ﬁscal policy ? Are structural reforms needed ? Answering those questions requires skills and tools that people use on a daily basis in governments, international organizations, and the private sector. We want you to learn these skills in order to make your own view of the economy.
