I SEMESTRE (inizio lezioni: 10 settembre 2018):

 

 

Transatlantic Relations

Professor Francesco Moro                                              lunedì e martedì 9:00- 10:15


This course will examine the post-World War II history and the current condition of the relationship between the United States and Europe. It will focus on the institutional dimension of this relationship and on its evolution within the framework of the Atlantic community. It will also consider the economic, strategic, political and cultural dimensions of US-European relations and how they have changed over the years. Particular attention will be paid to specific transitions (i.e.: The Cold War, the 1970s, the end of the Cold War, 9/11) and to the frequent controversies within the Atlantic alliance and between the United States and some of its European allies.

 

European Security

Professor Andy Wolff                                                     martedì 10:30-11:45   mercoledì 14:00-15:15

 

What security issues do European countries face? How are European countries and the European Union responding to various threats? This course delves into the structure of European security, examines the security challenges confronting Europe, and investigates the opportunities for enhancing Europe’s security and global leadership. Students will learn how European governments define security, formulate strategies, and implement policies to meet a host of traditional, transnational, and human security concerns.

International Trade

Professor Alireza Naghavi                                            lunedì 17:00- 18:15    martedì 15:30-16:45

 

At the end of the course students are able to confront four major issues in international trade. The aim of the first part is to introduce students to the debate on globalization from the viewpoint of international trade in goods and services. The aim of the second and third parts is to give students a better understanding of the causes and consequences of international trade, and of the effects of trade policies respectively. The aim of the fourth part is to equip students with the main approaches to the analysis of international factor movement and multinational operations, and to discuss the role of the World Trade Organization. 

 

Major Topics in International Politics- Global Governance and Resources

Professor Vincent Della Sala                                      giovedì 15:30-18:15

 

The aim of this course is to explore the ways on which global processes and structures are changing domestic and international politics. We will do this by looking more closely at how the international system deals with having to govern shared and competing interests with respect to resources such as energy, food, water and consequences for the environment. The focus of the course will be on the tension between traditional notions of security, which focus on geopolitics and the state, and wider views of security that involve a wider range of actors and policy areas. The central questions that we will address will focus on understanding how the nature of political power and its organization is being changed and is responding to pressures that come from beyond the state. The ultimate aim of this course is to assess whether the traditional conceptual tools we have in international relations can help us understand the growing uncertainty and complexity of international politics especially as they relate to resources. The course aims to provide you not only with the conceptual tools to better understand the international system but also with an introduction to some of the issues around the global politics of resources.
 

Modern Italy

Professor Sandra Cavallucci                                           mercoledì e venerdì 9:00-10:15


A survey of social, cultural, and political developments from the beginnings of the Risorgimento in the 18th century to the post-war period, including the effects of the Napoleonic period, the unification of Italy, World War I, Fascism, World War II, and the Cold War.

 

 

The Politics of Migration in the European Union

 Professor Michela Ceccorulli.                                  lunedì e giovedì 14.00-15:15

 

 The objective of this course is to understand how the European Union (EU) deals with the many-faceted phenomenon of migration and, hence, which policies have been adopted to reap its opportunities and to manage its potential challenges. Starting from basic concepts this course goes through the economic, social, political and security aspects of migration and focuses on the approach undertaken by the European Union and by selected Member-States. Also, the course investigates how migration is discussed by the political élites and by the media and how it is received by the public opinion with a glance at integration approaches, multiculturalism challenges and the perceived links with state, societal and human security.

 

 

Business Operations Management

Professor Michael Zincani                                         giovedì 9:00-11:45

 

 

This course has been designed for students who wish to learn and understand more about the role that operations management plays in manufacturing and service organizations. The syllabus covers some of the basic approaches used in operations management - such as: capacity and materials planning; the relationship between process flow, layout, technology and organizational choices; demand management, aggregate planning and inventory management. It then discusses the importance of improving quality and productivity along with a few of the most popular methods to drive improvement in organizations.
