The course will explore the global issues of illegal drugs, crime and terrorism. Course content emphasizes policy (options, formulation and implementation), organizations and networks, differing national approaches and programs, and the international legal and organizational framework. We will devote considerable attention to the similarities and links between the drugs, crime and terrorism phenomena. Students will analyze the conflict between vigorous pursuit of solutions to the issues and other foreign and public policy objectives and try to determine how they affect national interests and foreign policies of the nations and organizations involved. Students will make judgments on current and future developments and assess new lines of action that national and international policy makers might initiate to find solutions to these problems. Instruction will place emphasis on the tools and skills needed to produce effective recommendations for decision making. Case studies, group exercises and simulations will be used throughout the course and there will be a number of individual policy writing assignments.
