How do tech-politics and climate change shape geopolitical strategy? Where does the realpolitik of Eurasia leave Europe? Do we have the right strategies in mind when dealing with China?

You will learn how diplomacy and strategy work, both in theory and in practice. By formulating geopolitical strategies, you go head-to-head with top-level foreign policy experts on topics like cyber warfare, climate change and economic security, and reflect on your personal leadership.

The course is taught by Ties Dams (author, consulting strategist and fellow at the Clingendael Institute) and open to master students from all academic backgrounds.
