MA International Studies and Diplomacy

Soft power is the weapon through which future wars will be fought. This MA taught me the essential skills of diplomacy practice, the founding theoretical ideologies through which international relations are interpreted, and the ramifications these theories have in material issues such as nuclear proliferation, energy policy, climate negotiations, and so on. Broadly speaking the CISD opened my eyes on the multitude of world visions, and helped me develop, articulate and believe in my own.

Global Energy and Climate Policy

Having come from a legal background with special focus on international law, I knew very little about the complexities of climate issues and energy challenges.  The course enabled me to get a thorough understanding of the pivotal issues affecting policy makers and businesses in the realms of energy and climate. The organised mock exercises and the interactive seminars with knowledgeable individuals from the world of policy-making were a great benefit. I encourage all to take up this course.
