United Nations Environmental Diplomacy Practicum
4 credit hours (2 clinical and 2 academic), Fall or Spring
In this course, students study the decision-making process and negotiation of environmental treaties in the United Nations (UN) system. Students in the Diplomacy Practicum provide assistance to UN national Missions by attending meetings on behalf of the Missions and by preparing memoranda and/or research papers on a range of issues such as climate change, renewable energy, fisheries protection, and forest management. Students meet weekly at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law in a two credit seminar and then spend two days per week working at UN Missions.
