American Professors from Fletcher School Lecture at MGIMO

22 May 2018

May 22nd to 25th, MGIMO hosted a series of talks by professors from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University (USA).

These lectures are one of several projects jointly carried out by MGIMO and the Fletcher School this semester. Indeed in February, students from Tufts University participated in the International Arctic Week and in April, a Professor from the Fletcher School, Alan Henrikson, taught some modules to MGIMO students.

During the May visit, Professor Daniel Drezner gave a series of talks on International Political Economy and Statecraft to students of the MA programs «Governance and Global Affairs» and «Politics and Economics in Eurasia». His analysis of the relationship between the study of developed and developing economies in the framework of global governance and the construction of an international economic regime fascinated the audience. A first year student described the course as: «Insightful, engaging, quick witted and brilliant! We covered a host of topics, from populism to sanctions, as a tool of statecraft, to vital relations with the international community today, and were rewarded with in-depth, duly considered current analysis as a result. An extraordinary opportunity indeed! »

The course by Diana Chigas on the Process of International Negotiation was attended by students of the MA program «International Humanitarian Cooperation and External Relations of the Regions». The lectures looked at practical cases and the different possible approaches to the negotiation process.
The third module on International Trade Law was taught by Joel Trachtman for students of the MA «Legal Support of International Energy Cooperation».
