INTLPOL 214: Refugees in the Twenty-first Century

(Formerly IPS 214) The focus of this graduate seminar is policy dilemmas in international responses to massive population movements. In 2015 and 2016 hundreds of thousands of persons from the Middle East (particularly Syria) and Africa fled their home countries and attempted to cross into Europe by sea. In September 2016, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted the "New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants". This political declaration aims to improve the international response to large movements of refugees and migrants, including protracted refugee situations. One of the many challenges confronting this multilateral diplomatic undertaking is that the definition of the word "refugee" is contested, as is the process to determine who is a refugee. This course will provide an immersive examination of the causes and consequences of refugee movements. This course is a seminar that requires full student attendance and participation. A focus of the course is to develop the skills of students in writing policy memos. Students will meet with the instructor for multiple one-on-one sessions on their policy memos.

INTLPOL 246C: China and the Global Order

(Course is available only to students participating in Stanford's SCPKU study abroad program in Beijing, which is operated by the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI).) China's reemergence as a global player is transforming both China and the international system. Other nations view China's rise with a mixture of admiration, anxiety, and opportunism. Some welcome China's rise as a potential counterweight to US preeminence; others fear the potential consequences of Sino-American rivalry and erosion of the US-led international system that has fostered unprecedented peace and prosperity. There is a natural temptation to "hedge" but doing so entails significant risks. This course provides an overview of China's engagement with countries in all regions and on a wide range of issues since it launched the policy of reform and opening in 1978. The goal is to provide a broad overview and systematic comparisons across regions and issues, and to examine how China's global engagement has changed over time.

INTLPOL 247C: Chinese Society in the Reform Era (SOC 247C)

(Course is available only to students participating in Stanford's SCPKU study abroad program in Beijing, which is operated by the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI).) This course is a broad survey of the transformations that have reshaped China since the end of the 1970s, and the prospects for China¿s continued prosperity. The course places China¿s trajectory in comparative perspective¿especially with the other socialist planned economies and East Asian ¿miracle¿ economies. We will examine the political institutions and fiscal and financial systems that have powered a four decade economic drive, and a series of related topics: urbanization, housing privatization, migratory labor, rising inequality, and the emergence of a large urban ¿middle class¿. We will then consider current and prospective challenges to China¿s continued economic rise: an aging population, shrinking labor force, China¿s response to the world financial crisis of 2008 and its lingering consequences. We will end the course by evaluating a range of different views about the challenges facing China¿s continued rise.

INTLPOL 248C: Key Issues in Chinese Politics (POLISCI 248C, POLISCI 348C)

(Course is available only to students participating in Stanford's SCPKU study abroad program in Beijing, which is operated by the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI).) A broad overview of China's politics and the role of the state in the economy. It will cover party and government organization, including central-local relations, and the challenges of governance that have emerged as China has moved from a central-planned Leninist system to a market economy. What institutions have allowed China to thrive while other communist states in the world have disappeared? How has the Chinese Communist Party managed to develop markets and yet keep itself in power? What avenues are there for political participation? What is the role of the internet? What are the prospects for political change? How resilient is the party in the face of technological and economic change?

INTLPOL 249C: The Economic Development of Greater China: Past, Present, and Future.

(Course is available only to students participating in Stanford's SCPKU study abroad program in Beijing, which is operated by the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI).) A survey of economic development in China with emphasis on understanding the process of economic reform, transition and development during the past 20 years. One goal is to help students develop an informed perspective on the different historical stages, economic and political rationale, and effectiveness of the economic policies and institutional changes that have shaped China's economic emergence. A second and more important goal is to study the Chinese development experience in order to think critically about the process of economic and social change. China's experiment with socialism and its efforts to reform into a more market-oriented system make it a particularly compelling case study for understanding how institutions and institutional change affect economic and social development.

INTLPOL 255: Policy Practicum: Rethinking INTERPOL's Governance Model

(Formerly IPS 255) 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, 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.

INTLPOL 268: Hack Lab

(Formerly IPS 268) This course combines lectures with hands-on labs to give students a solid understanding of the most common types of attacks used in cybercrime and cyberwarfare. Taught by a long-time cybersecurity practitioner, each session will begin with a lecture covering the basics of an area of technology and how that technology has been misused in the past. Students will then complete a lab section, with the guidance of the instructor and assistants, where they attack a known insecure system using techniques and tools seen in the field. By the end of the course, students are expected to have a working knowledge of the most popular hacking techniques seen in the wild and the basic skills necessary to power further exploration. Students are required to bring a Windows or Mac laptop and will be provided with testing virtual machines. No computer science background is required. Students must enroll in the lecture as well as one discussion section via Axess.
