MA in Diplomacy and Global Governance

Vesalius College
Campus Full time 1 year August 2017 Belgium Brussels

This unique one-year Master’s programme provides students and professionals with comprehensive knowledge and policy-oriented skills at the intersection of diplomacy and global governance. [+]

MA Degrees in Belgium 2017. MA in Diplomacy and Global Governance A one-year intensive MA Programme This unique one-year Master’s programme provides students and professionals with comprehensive knowledge and policy-oriented skills at the intersection of diplomacy and global governance. Both diplomacy and global governance are important institutions of the international order; but they are also the institutions undergoing permanent processes of change in the modern and at times turbulent world. No institution has undergone greater change in both our theoretical understanding of it and the nature of its day-to-day practice in the last several decades than diplomacy. No process has become more important than our ability, or often lack of it, to engage on transnational policy making by international collective action problem solving while at the same time becoming so highly contested and politicized. We face a permanent challenge to govern ourselves beyond the territory of the nation state, and hence face the importance of understanding the expectations and limits of global governance and diplomatic skills. The degree is designed and taught by a network of leading international academics from top universities and think tanks as well as senior policy-makersfrom international organisations, and provides both theoretical foundations and practical skill-sets for students interested in international careers in diplomacy, government, international organizations, think tanks and NGOs. With its strong links to the policy-making world and university/think tank partners in Brussels, wider Europe, US and Asia, the programme can offer students a truly global exchange between theory and practice. By deliberately bringing... [-]

MA Political Strategy and Communication

University of Kent, Brussels Schools of International Studies
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 3 years September 2017 Belgium Brussels + 1 more

Politics is not merely about power. Sophisticated politics involves communication, strategy and manipulation of the political agenda. [+]

MA Degrees in Belgium 2017. MA Political Strategy and Communication Politics is not merely about power. Sophisticated politics involves communication, strategy and manipulation of the political agenda. Whether it be a political leader motivating people to follow, a government seeking allies for a policy in the international arena, a campaigner mobilizing supporters, or a high-priced corporate lobbyist explaining a client’s policy to legislators, all political ideas ultimately depend on them being communicated to an intended audience, with precision, efficiency and above all credibility. What are the appropriate forms of communication for a politician? What forms of ‘spin’ can work, and which do journalists see through? What are effective ways of framing a client’s perspective for government officials, and what are the entry points in the decision-making cycle that makes their communication strategy most effective? Brussels has emerged as the largest centre for international media, measured in the number of foreign correspondents, which has now exceeded the number in Washington DC. Brussels is also home to thousands of political lobbyists, engaged either as public relations specialists, political strategists, or corporate communications advisors. A recent study of graduates from BSIS who stay in Brussels shows that political communication is among their primary career destination. An MA in Political Strategy and Communication engages students in the practical issues of political delivery. The areas of political communication, political leadership, strategy, crisis management, political branding, and public relations are all the leading vocational aspects of a developed academic understanding of politics and international relations, and...

MA International Relations

University of Kent, Brussels Schools of International Studies
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years September 2017 Belgium Brussels + 1 more

MA International Relations Day after day we experience what it means to live in an internationalising world. Grasping its essence, however, is all but evident. The MA in International Relations tries to grasp the complexity of international processes and to offer the necessary tools to understand its different dimensions (political, legal, economic) and the role of various actors (states, international organisations, business, etc.). The programme is built on the interaction of theory (how we approach the world), method (how we explore the world) and substance (what we know about the world). Students can choose five out of seven courses from a wide variety of electives. This allows them to assemble their personal programme, tailored to their interests and background. The programme builds on the long tradition of the University of Kent as a leading university in the field of international relations. By offering an MA in International Relations in Brussels, we place this expertise in the unique context of a European and international capital, host to the EU and NATO. More than a context, this aspect of Brussels as hotspot of international policy-making is actively integrated into the programme and reflected in the high number of high-profile diplomats and policy-makers lecturing at BSIS. Key facts Duration: Standard programme: One year full-time or two years part-time Extended programme: 18 months full-time or three years part-time Start: September or January. Aims The aims of the MA in International Relations are to: Provide students with a research-active teaching environment which gives them a... [-]
