International Climate Negotiation Seminar


This variable credit course (all students will register for 3 CREDITS) is designed to prepare students to attend and observe annual meetings associated with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as a delegate of Washington University. The course and meetings provide student delegates with a unique educational experience to observe the development of international climate policy through interdisciplinary negotiations and interactions inside the negotiating space. Students see the interaction between climate policy, science and technology as they identify and analyze policy decisions across the international climate regime. The COP 27 meeting will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from November 7-18, 2022. The Subsidiary Body meetings will be in Bonn, Germany in spring of 2023 and are generally held in late May or early June. The number of students who can attend meetings is limited by the United Nations. We will do our best to have course participants attend either the COP or Subsidiary Body meetings. Students attend one week. Enrollment is limited. Indicate your interest by placing yourself on the waitlist (registering for 3 credits) and completing an application. All students will be placed on the waitlist upon registration and students will be selected to enroll from the waitlist after all the applications are reviewed. The application will be open in early March and will be available on the Climate Change Program website at Application review will begin April 22 and enrollment decisions will be made by Monday May 2. Participation in the course is possible without traveling to the meetings. The cost of meeting attendance is partially covered by the Climate Change Program and need based support is available. More information on cost is included on the application page. Pre-requisite: junior standing. The course is currently scheduled for Wednesday 4:00 - 6:50.
