INAF-444 Statecraft and Negotiation
Fall for 2017-2018
Statecraft and Negotiation: This seminar course will look at American foreign policy through the lens of statecraft. Statecraft involves the orchestration of all the instruments of power and influence to protect against threats and to promote broad national interests. Key elements of statecraft include developing strategy, defining objectives and purposes, identifying the means available for pursuing strategy and knowing how best to employ them. Because negotiations represent one policy tool that is central to nearly all forms of statecraft, the course will explore negotiations and mediation. It will look at the American approach to negotiations and also examine mediation as an instrument for settling or defusing local and sectarian conflicts.
