Justification The content of this course was previously offered as one-weekend of CM 7305, a two-credit clinic course. We are replacing the one 2-credit course with a series of three one-credit courses, which should allow for more student choice in the curriculum, student transcripts to better reflect the content covered in the curriculum, and the potential for offering embedded certificates in the program focused in particular areas of conflict management (international, workplace, and courts/justice). IV.

Prerequisites: None Objectives: At the completion of this course students should be able to: identify key dimensions of international conflicts to determine their fitness for thirdparty intervention to assess the relative merits of prospective mediators and mediation formats to understand ethical considerations related to mediation and other interventions Instructional Method Readings, role-plays, and videos. Students and faculty members will engage in analytical discussions about the role of mediators and other third parties in international conflicts. V. Method of Evaluation This is a pass/fail course.
