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.

(Formerly IPS 237) The meddling of religion in politics has become a major global issue. Can religion co-exist with politics in a democracy?

The course offered is a research workshop, part of a policy-oriented applied research in motion. The workshop will meet a few times during the Fall Quarter and the instructor will be available to consult with the workshop's participants on a bi-weekly basis. The workshop will include unique opportunities for hands-on, team-based research.

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.
