Content Im Zuge der Globalisierung nimmt der Austausch zwischen verschiedenen Kulturen immer mehr zu. Gerade die Wirtschaft spielt dabei eine Vorreiterrolle. Längst wissen wir auch, dass die interkulturelle Kommunikation nicht immer reibungslos klappt, dass im Gegenteil unzählige Fallen lauern. Wir wollen uns in dieser Veranstaltung dem Problem theoretisch nähern und grundsätzliche Begriffe hinterfragen: Kultur, Interkultur, Wahrnehmung, Stereotyp, Kommunikation usw.

Content This course offers an introduction to the way in which the international system is organised and managed. The focus is international organisations, combining both theoretical and empirical approaches. Theoretically, we discuss why, who and when creates and promotes international organisations. Empirically, we analyse the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organisation. Special attention is given to case studies and specific examples to clarify the connection, and sometimes the disconnection that exists between the letter of the treaties and the diplomatic practice.

Content Etwa 200 Jahre nach dem Beginn ihres Unabhängigkeitsprozesses scheinen die Staaten Lateinamerikas vor einem weiteren Schritt der Emanzipation zu stehen. Nach einem Jahrhundert der politischen wie wirtschaftlichen Dominanz durch die USA agieren sie zunehmend selbstbewusst auf der internationalen Bühne und gehen neue Kooperationen ein. In diesem Kurs wird diese neue Rolle Lateinamerikas sowohl wirtschaftlich als auch politisch beleuchtet.

Content Globalisierung bezeichnet die zunehmende internationale Verflechtung von Wirtschaft, Politik Gesellschaft und Kultur. Sie prägt unsere Zeit und nimmt eine wachsende Bedeutung ein, ihre Auswirkungen sind allerdings umstritten. Im Zentrum der Globalisierungskritik steht die Zuspitzung von Ungleichheit und dem Auseinanderdriften von Industrie- und Entwicklungsländern.

Gerade die Region Lateinamerika wird häufig als Verlierer der Globalisierung interpretiert. Defizite bei wirtschaftlicher und politischer Anpassung sowie eine fehlendeTechnologieorientierung erschweren es der Region sich in der globalisierten Welt zu behaupten.

Vor diesem Hintergrund widmet sich das Seminar folgenden Fragen: Wer sind die Gewinner, wer die Verlierer der Globalisierung? Wo steht Lateinamerika in dieser Einteilung? Wie positionieren sich die unterschiedlichen Länder Lateinamerikas in der zunehmenden Globalisierung? Gibt es gesellschaftliche Gruppen, die gegen eine weitere Vernetzung agieren?

In diesem Zusammenhang wird die Rolle Lateinamerikas in der globalen Politik analysiert. Hierzu werden die außenpolitischen Strategien Handelspolitik ausgewählter Lateinamerikanischer Staaten untersucht.

Das Seminar ist Teil einer interdisziplinären und interuniversitären studentischen Tagung zum Thema: „Die Globalisierung und ihre Kritik“. Die Ergebnisse des Seminars werden in Form von wissenschaftlichen Papieren, die von den Teilnehmern anstelle einer Hausarbeit zu verfassen sind, auf einer Tagung der Universitäten Wuppertal, Göttingen und Erlangen-Nürnberg vom 30.06 bis 01.07.17 in Wuppertal vorgestellt und nehmen an dem Paper-Award der Tagung teil.

Wichige Informationen zur Anmeldung: Anmeldung über StudOn vom 15.03.2017 bis zum 10.04.2017. Auswahl der endgültigen Teilnehmer nach Einsenden eines kurzen (max. 1 Seite!) Motivationsschreibens an Frau Miguel Müller (nelia.m.mueller@fau.de).

Content This semester the Kolloquium discusses different aspects of the history, politics and economics of Europe and the European Union. The 60th anniversary of the signature of the Treaties of Rome (1957), which established the European Economic Community, provide  a timing oppurtunity for reflection on the past, present and future of Europe. Issues such as Brexit, Europe’s relation with the US and with Latin America, Europe’s strategic partnerships, as well as topical issues of global interest such as climate change will be dissected by our speakers. Are Europe and the European Union still pivotal actors in today’s international system?

Content This “Vorlesung” addresses the ways in which the international system is organised to produce norms, rules and patterns of behaviour among international actors. Key questions include: who creates international organisations, why and when? The approach is both theoretical and empirical. The role, functioning, achievement and shortcomings of international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organisation, and the International Monetary Fund will be critically discussed. The human factor is at the centre of analysis. International organisations are created and ruled by human beings to manage interactions among other human beings. Many issues are not only technical but also moral.

Content Power in its several tenets has steadily shifted between states and recently from state actors to other actors in the international system. The theoretical file rouge of this course is the combination of/tension between changes in the international order (distribution of power) and changes in the nature of power. This has occurred at different times and with different intensity, depending on the geographical area or the thematic subject. The course aims to bridge theory and practice with emphasis on the latter, by providing students with a clear theoretical toolkit that is applied to a number of case studies. The implications of different approaches to power for the international order and institutions will be spelt out during lectures and seminars.

Content Wirtschafts- und Managementstile erfassen die kulturellen Unterschiede zwischen verschiedenen Ländern. Was läuft in Frankreich anders als in Deutschland? Und warum? Die Wirtschaftsstilforschung hat versucht, darauf eine Antwort zu finden. Wir werden uns also dem französischen Wirtschaftsstil widmen und ansatzweise auch dem deutschen und den Unterschieden auf die Spur kommen, die auch heute noch unsere Volkswirtschaften prägen. Von da aus kommen auch unterschiedliche Managementstile ins Blickfeld.

Content The international system has been moving from a unipolar to an increasingly multipolar system over the past 15 years. The rise of new powers, often summarized under the key word ‘BRICS’  (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) has been a key element of the fundamental changes the international system has been undergoing. As a member of the BRICS group and a regional power in South America, Brazil has gained considerable clout in international affairs and has had an active role in shaping the emerging multipolar order.
The seminar will look at the global power shifts and the rise of new powers in the international system and explore Brazil’s role and position in the newly emerging global order. How has Brazil positioned itself in the international community? What are the foreign policy goals of this rising power? Which instruments does it use to pursue its foreign policy objectives?
The seminar is located at the intersection between International Relations Theory, foreign policy analysis and area studies. It will give the student insights into current developments in the international system and the foreign policies of emerging powers – exemplified by the study of the rising power Brazil.

Content This semester the Kolloquium deals with a hot topic in international relations, international business and trade negotiations: the centrality of the US on the international stage. The academic literature as well as several analysts and practitioners have argued that this century is going to be an Asian – or Chinese – century, and that the US is losing ground internationally. In our sessions, we will instead argue with theoretical and practical illustrations that the US is as central as ever to international affairs. In fact, the US is gaining ground again on the world stage after the Bush years. Among other topics, we will discuss the US grand strategy, the transatlantic and transpacific trade negotiations, the role of the US in Latin America and in other regions of the world, the legacy of the Obama administration, and the international implications of the 2016 presidential elections in the US.
