Fall Seminar Course Description: This course recognizes the importance of regional study within the field of international relations. Developing and implementing coherent foreign policy in a conflict region is especially challenging. The course will look at U.S. foreign policy initiatives in the Balkans, Columbia, as well as Syria and Iraq. The course will examine the case of Columbia in the 2000s, when it transformed from a near-failed narco-state to a more prosperous nation with the desire to be a force for stability in the region. Course participants will also use the Balkans in the 1990s as a case study representing the challenges facing diplomatic initiatives in a multi-ethnic, multi-religious regional conflict. Course participants will then focus on current problems in Syria and Iraq and seek to formulate a set of realistic policy proposals to address one of the most vexing regional foreign policy challenges of our time.

The instructors are active duty American Foreign Service Officers with diplomatic experience in the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America. This course will also include senior American and foreign officials and other policy leaders with involvement and expertise in critical regions.
