INTLPOL 271: Climate Politics: Science and Global Governance (HISTORY 202J)

(Formerly IPS 271) Provides a unique perspective on contemporary debates about climate change through a study of their long history. After some background about climate science and a look at how people thought about climate in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries, we explore the co-evolution of climate science and climate politics from World War II to the present. The approach is to examine a series of political issues and debates that established human effects on the global atmosphere as serious problems. We then focus on the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the 2015 Paris Agreement, and the future of international climate policy. Assignments include in-class presentations and a policy brief.

INTLPOL 301A: Research Methods and Policy Applications I

The first quarter will cover the fundamentals of probability theory and statistics that students need in order to read, critically evaluate, and undertake policy-relevant quantitative research. Topics covered include random variables, probability distributions and their moments, inference, estimation, hypothesis testing, statistical power, and ordinary least squares regression. We will devote substantial time to "learning by doing" using statistics software. Students will use the R programming language to learn the basics of programming, generate data, manipulate real-world datasets, and demonstrate/visualize theoretical concepts in statistics and mathematics. We will present examples of real-world research and students will evaluate and demonstrate the extent to which it matches up with concepts covered in lecture.

INTLPOL 302: The Global Economy

This course examines the economic inter-connectedness of nations. Among the topics covered are the causes and consequences of current account imbalances, exchange rate determination, monetary unification, financial and currency crises, and contagion. In addition, the course includes an assessment of key global financial institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, and the global effort to reform the international financial architecture.

They will propose policies to address the identified economic vulnerabilities, and will assess the feasibility of policy implementation. In addition, the ¿In the News¿ segment in class will discuss and analyze current events in areas relevant to the course. (This course was formerly IPS 202.)

INTLPOL 352: State Building and the Rule of Law Seminar

( LAW 5103) This Seminar is centrally concerned with bridging theory and practice. The seminar introduces the key theories relevant to state-building generally, and strengthening the rule of law in particular. This course explores the multidisciplinary nature of development --- through readings, lectures, guest lectures, case studies, and seminar discussions --- and asks how lawyers fit in and contribute to the process? The set of developing countries considered within the scope of this workshop is broad. It includes, among others, states engaged in post-conflict reconstruction, e.g., Cambodia, Timor Leste, Rwanda, Iraq, Sierra Leone; states still in conflict, e.g., Afghanistan, Somalia; the poorest states of the world that may not fall neatly into the categories of conflict or post-conflict, e.g., Nepal, Haiti; least developed states that are not marked by high levels of violent conflict at all, e.g., Bhutan; and more developed states at critical stages of transition, e.g., Tunisia, Georgia, Hungary. Grading is based on participation, a presentation of research or a proposal, and, in consultation with the professor, a research paper. The research paper may be a group project or an individual in-depth research proposal, either of which could be the basis for future field research. CONSENT APPLICATION: The seminar is open by consent to up to sixteen (16) JD, SPILS, and LLM students, and graduate students from other departments within Stanford University. This course is taught in conjunction with the India Field Study component ( Law 5026). Students may enroll for this course alone or for both this course and Law 5026 with consent of the instructor (12 students will come to India). 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). See Consent Application Form for instructions and submission deadline. (Formerly Law 259)
