The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs invites current Yale students to apply for two Fall 2017 seminars offered by Senior Fellows:
GLBL 750: American Power in the 21st Century: Lessons in Diplomacy
Led by Sec. John Kerry
This seminar will take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding diplomacy both in theory and practice, and will examine the core subjects on which the Kerry Initiative is focused: failed and failing states, the challenge of authoritarian populism, rising sectarianism and violent extremism, climate change and other environmental threats, capacity building and anti-corruption, global economic opportunity and development.
Applications are due no later than 12:00pm on Monday, August 14, 2017
GLBL 790: Leadership
Led by Gen. Stanley McChrystal and Chris Fussell
This course will examine the practical execution of leadership in today’s environment. Using a combination of historical case studies and recent events, we will review how dramatic changes in technology, society, politics, media, and globalization have increased the complexity of the tasks facing modern leaders.
Applications are due no later than 12:00pm on Friday, August 18, 2017
