|Subject Overview:||In this subject students will be placed in an organization which deals with international politics in some respect. They will work under the supervision and guidance of a senior manager in the organization. Students will be required to use their own networks to make initial contact with a potential organization; their choice will then need to be ratified by the department. Students will carry out research or analytical exercises of relevance to the organization. Students will study the international environment of the organization and develop advanced analytical research and report-writing skills. Students completing this course should expect to acquire significant insight into the complexities of the practice of international politics. During the internship an academic supervisor will advise them.|
