Course building workshop on "Foreign Policy Analysis"

Course building on "Foreign Policy Analysis" (FPA) is a 3-years joint project of Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung Vietnam and Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam with the aim of incorporating FPA in the International Relations (IR) curriculum at Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam. Against this background, a two-day workshop was successfully organized in Ho Chi Minh city on 25th & 26th November 2022. The workshop served as a forum for exchanging ideas among Vietnamese scholars and researchers, and with their foreign colleagues about the syllabus of the FPA course.
More than 50 IR experts and lecturers coming from the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam, the University of Social Sciences and Humanities Hanoi, the University of Social Sciences and Humanities Ho Chi Minh City, the University of Economic and Finance, Fulbright University Vietnam, Duy Tan University…spent for the first time together discussing and contributing to the prospective syllabus of the FPA course. These discussions were not only valuable guidance for the DAV in its efforts to develop this new course, but other colleagues als had the chance to re-evaluate and consult with peers about their teaching modules related to the topic of foreign policy analysis. Moreover, the curriculum that the DAV develops for this course can be an excellent source of research and teaching reference for other colleagues and institutions in Vietnam.
