Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Vienna is home to a large number of governmental and non-governmental International Organizations (G-IOs and NG-IOs). Their work often has a direct impact on the countries of East Asia. The goal of the course is to acquaint students with the work of some of these G-IOs and NG-IOs and their relevance for East Asia, including the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations Development Organization, the Organization of Petrol Exporting Countries, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in Europe, and the Vienna Center for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace.
In addition to visits, we will invite experts from or on these IOs to give special lectures at the Department of East Asian Studies to allow for a deeper insight into the workings of these organizations and the issues they are dealing with.
This course takes place in cooperation with Seoul National University. About 20 SNU students will come to Vienna in February 2019 to visit and discuss the above said IOs. A high level of competence in English is absolutely essential in order to be able to actively engage the IO representatives and to interact with the Korean students. This interaction is an important part of the program to expand the perspective of our students and to help them understanding a Korean perspective on matters that are covered by the IOs.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

A very good active knowledge of English is essential. In the preparatory phase, students are required to read various materials to prepare for the visits. The results will be presented in class and have to be submitted in written form. During the field trip phase, students are required to keep records of the visits and to discuss the results in a final report.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Regular participation is mandatory. This includes two preparatory sessions during the semester as well as the field visit stage in February 2019 (11.02.-22.02.2019). Students who miss one or more sessions/visits will have their grades reduced by one full grade per absence.
Students are further required to form small teams (two students each) and prepare a briefing on one IO in preparation of the visits. The grade for this assignment will be given for a written report and an in-class presentation.
After the field phase, students are required to individually write a report on the results of the IO visits and discuss the outcomes and implications.
The final grade will be calculated as the arithmetic average of the grades for the two assignments, and can be adjusted according to participation as indicated above.
