The objective is to enable students to develop a better understanding and realistic assessment of multilateral decision-making processes on the substantive issues. A key focus this semester will be placed on the recently adopted climate agreement, the 21st UNFCCC Conference of the Parties and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Students will demonstrate their understanding in an end of term paper.
