Where does the will to engage in armed conflict come from? How are decisions made to fight or collaborate with others? Why are some states more prosperous and healthy than others? This course answers these questions by studying various dimensions of conflicts, decision making, institutions, international law, human rights, the environment, economic collaboration, and the proliferation of weapons. This course promotes experiential learning through group work, student presentations, research/writing, and participation in a UN simulation.
