POLS 210 Overview
This course aims at acclimatizing students with the basic techniques of diplomacy and consensus-building through which interests are articulated, conflicts resolved, and decisions made in the United Nations. It starts with an introduction to the Charter, the basic structure and functions of the UN and its specialized agencies, as well as various issues that the organization is currently focused on. This culminates into a simulation of either the Security Council or General Assembly of the UN in St. Louis, at which students represent various assigned countries.
