IARU's first Joint Course started in four partner universities
Students from Cambridge, UC Berkeley, National University of Singapore and the University of Tokyo are now attending the first joint course taught by five IARU Scholars on "State Fragility and its Consequences".
This course focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of state fragility in different parts of the world.
The course is a hybrid of on-line and instructor led discussions. It is also a truly international collaboration. The four universities, will collaborate in sharing a (1) a core syllabus, (2) common course materials (video, powerpoint, assignment and questions), and also prepare for (3) cross-national student groups, two from each universities to work together. The final paper will require students to work with their colleagues from these universities across the globe on group projects, possibly in a form of policy paper/recommendations.
