Professor of Government
This course will consider the mixture of public and private agencies in New York City that attempt to guide and influence the direction of global politics. Field study will include visits to major institutions in both categories, as well as speakers from the world of global politics, the international media, and a wide variety of interest groups. We will explore--up close-- how politics has become global and how New York City copes with its status as a world capital, since the interplay of municipal and international issues is not always frictionless.
