The memo will be a 10 000 character paper written for an executive of your choice on a topic chosen in agreement with the teacher.

Course Description : The aim of the course is to help students acquire the necessary tools to analyze, as citizens as well as practitioners and workers, international affairs in the contemporary world. It will explore international issues, based on research and practice, through economic, strategic, political and social lenses. National and international political issues will be of particular interest. Indeed, all actors, should they be public, private, non governmental, etc., have to face questions related to power, communication, ﬁnancial means, culture and organisation. Hence the course will begin by studying global and so-called transversal issues to lay the foundations for examining regional and national issues. Theories of international relations will be used in as far as they shed light on the practice of world affairs as well as history, geography, economics, strategy or other social sciences. The study of the international system requires an introduction to the various actors of the international scene, conﬂicts, regional issues, etc. The course will attempt to be as exhaustive as possible to cover the most important issues, actors and geographical areas. In addition to the teacher's introductions and class discussions, we will use class debates, case studies and students' presentations to practice the skills that are critical to success in public service as well as the private sector—deep intellectual knowledge of the core issues of our time, analytical thinking, effective writing skills and the ability to make clear, succinct oral presentations and arguments. Each student will be required to make a presentation and write a memo on a topic of their interest. Selected readings will be required, while a larger bibliography will be provided for those interested in further reading. Required reading : Two to three readings will be required in preparation for each class. ; KISSINGER, Henry. Diplomacy. Simon & Schuster, 1994, 912 p. (Diplomatie.
