Module 1: Global Politics (11 – 15 September 2023)
Globalization continues to strongly impact the international political order, as well as the role of state structures. The positives of globalization have led to increased cooperation among countries in addressing global challenges, supported by international institutions.
However, more recent times have also given rise to inequalities, geopolitics, and populism – manifesting in complex interrelated challenges at the global, regional and state level – the poli-crisis era. In the absence of effective global governance, these current issues could worsen. This module will explore the key challenges impacting global politics, analyze current responses, and outline current and anticipated efforts to re-build global cooperation.
Featured topics include:
- Contemporary Global Governance and its Challenges
- Bridging Science and Diplomacy: Anticipating Dilemmas
- Strategic Foresight
- Effective Leadership
This module offers the participants a global governance “lens” to grasp the main challenges in global politics and to identify the key actors, as well as a set of interrelated tools for global governance practices in multiple interconnected fields. This is a unique opportunity for participants to expand their international network of professionals across cultures and regions.
- Government officials who wish to gain a deep understanding of political, security and economic trends in order to be able to see developments within a larger context.
- Aspiring corporate officials to have a more comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and obstacles present in the international sphere to improve their chances for successful business.
- Mid- to high-level professionals who seek a qualitative edge to the information they receive and to the relationships they want to build.
Participants in the program will have the opportunity to choose whether they wish to attend individual modules, or to attend the entire three module program. In this way, the program provides flexibility according to the main interest of the participants.
Each module involves one week of full-time training in Geneva. Participants who are accepted must confirm their availability for the entire period of one, two or three modules and attend all sessions during the module(s).
