Using teamwork and role-playing, students will consider the policy implications of such issues as national and indigenous resource rights versus multinational corporate claims; social activism, nationalism and secessionism; regional and cross-border environmental issues; anti-drug and anti-terrorist operations; economic integration, trade, aid, immigration, and human rights.
