Teaching methods

Students are expected to prepare preliminary readings for the course which implies to develop a synthesis of the main arguments of their readings. Readings constitute an essential prerequisite of the course in order to understand the teacher's lectures. The analysis by group of students of a specific case study is another essential part of the course.

Evaluation methods

The preparation of readings and relevant participation will account for 25% of the final mark. Every two weeks, each student has to summarize a total of minimum 60 pages from articles or books selected in the reading list of the course (downloadable from the website of the course). An electronic version of the weekly summaries is to be sent by mail to the professor one day before the lecture takes place. Weekly summaries should not exceed 1000 words. Weekly summaries will be marked and will account for 30% of the final mark. At the end of the term, groups composed of four students will have to submit an essay of 20000 words on a specific case study relevant to the course. This essay will be defended in an oral examination of 30 minutes. The essay and the oral defense will account for the remaining 75% of the final mark.
