Despite geo-political tensions and conflict, the people of the world are still interdependent and face common problems, from economy to ecology. World leaders know this, and try, in various ways, to develop global agendas and make global policies. The UN is only one example of this, and possibly not the best since it is often more about political posturing than policy making. Other examples include the G7, the G20, and the World Economic Forum.
This discussion will explore different "global agendas" and their implications. What do world leaders see as the most pressing economic issues? The most important social issues? What is driving global policy-making? What does all this mean for our shared future?
Take part in international discussion with the world expert and learn more about global agendas and global policies
You will be able to:
learn about relevant trends in international policies
discuss alternative scenarios of global development with respect to increasing tensions
analyze the role of global institutions in forming global policy agenda (G7, G20, World Economic Forum)
assess the impact of current political environment on your organization performance
