Managing Conflict and Cooperation in Canadian Politics
0.5 Credit

This course surveys topics such as nationalism (e.g., Quebec, Aboriginal peoples), the accommodation of difference (e.g., ethno-cultural, religious), and interest-based disputes (e.g., environment vs. business), with a view to understanding how they are shaped by a wide range of complex institutional and societal factors. Through various instructor- and student-led activities, including debates, simulations, group work, and other active learning pedagogies, students acquire the necessary tools for understanding the nature of such conflicts and how we might effectively manage and mitigate them.
