GOVT 85.42 Quantitative Analysis of International Cooperation

This course is a seminar on international relations and statistics. It is intended to provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to read and discuss a range of scholarly literature on cooperation in the international system. It also intends to provide a survey of advanced empirical tools applicable to the topic. We will study conditions under which countries establish, maintain, and terminate cooperation, the design of international agreements and institutions, and the influence of international agreements on foreign policy decisions in various issue areas. Throughout the course, we will also learn statistical methods that have been designed to address such QDS research questions and their applications. The examples include, but not limited to, generalized linear models, matching techniques, ideal point estimation, two-stage least squares, and treatment-effect estimates. This course will culminate in an individual research project. Students will leave this course with a better understanding of international relations, increased ability to design and conduct their own research, and improved quantitative analytical skills.
