The instructors, retired U.S. senior diplomats, utilize a real-world scenario – the Six-Party Talks on denuclearization of North Korea – to provide instructional context. Required readings are minimal, but students must research national policies and positions related to the negotiation and regularly engage their student counterparts and instructors face-to-face, by e-mail, and via formal written documents throughout the course.
