LAW 805Z: Policy Practicum: Rethinking INTERPOL's Governance Model

Today, the international community faces increasingly complex security challenges arising from transnational criminal activities. Effective international cooperation among police agencies is critical in combatting cross-boundary criminal threats like terrorism, human and drug trafficking, and cybercrime. INTERPOL---the world's largest police organization---strives to innovate to adequately respond to the evolving threat landscape and remain at the forefront of global policing efforts. As a leader in global policing efforts, INTERPOL launched the INTERPOL 2020 Initiative to review the organization's strategy and develop a roadmap for strengthening its policing capabilities. INTERPOL 2020 will provide the strategic framework to ensure the Organization remains a leader and respected voice in global security matters.

Students in Stanford-Interpol Policy Lab will work directly with INTERPOL senior stakeholders (via video-conferencing and email) to contribute to INERPOL 2020 Initiative and enhance its role to better counter transnational cyber-crime and terrorism. Students may have opportunities to travel to INTERPOL headquarters in Lyon over the Spring Break for meetings with clients to present our policy guidance. Selected students in the practicum may also have the opportunity to pursue internships and/or externships at the Office of Legal Affairs, INTERPOL General Secretariat in Lyon, France and/or at INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore. Open to graduate students from outside the Law School and, in exceptional cases, to advanced undergraduate students, the practicum seeks those who demonstrate strong interest and background in global security and international law, Internet Governance and law enforcement, organizational behavior, and strategic management. This practicum takes place for two quarters (Fall and Winter). Although students may enroll for either one or both quarters, we will give preference to students who commit to enrolling in both quarters. Autumn Quarter is offered for 3 units. Winter Quarter is offered for 3 units. Practicum will meet weekly during Fall and Winter Quarters on Wednesdays, from 9:00-10:30 am and hold periodic discussion sessions with senior INTERPOL officials via VCT. Elements used in grading: Attendance, Class participation, Written Assignments, Oral Briefings, Final Paper. NOTE: Students may not count more than a combined total of eight units of directed research projects and policy lab practica toward graduation unless the additional counted units are approved in advance by the Petitions Committee. Such approval will be granted only for good cause shown. Even in the case of a successful petition for additional units, a student cannot receive a letter grade for more than eight units of independent research (Policy Lab practicum, Directed Research, Senior Thesis, and/or Research Track). Any units taken in excess of eight will be graded on a mandatory pass basis. For detailed information, see "Directed Research/Policy Labs" in the SLS Student Handbook. CONSENT APPLICATION: To apply for this course, students must complete and submit a Consent Application Form available on the SLS website (Click Courses at the bottom of the homepage and then click Consent of Instructor Forms).
