For this professional assignment, you will watch a documentary or film based on a real event that reflects historical and political themes relevant to international relations to further your understanding of international relations and provide a thoughtful response to it. You must pay close attention to the ways in which foreign policy decisions are made and strategized, keeping in mind the political, economic, and historical context of the political event and how the theories of international relations figure into the themes of the film. Then write the film response.
The aim of this is for you to assess an international policy, analyze the status of implementation, and formulate (or construct) alternative recommendations for policy and practitioner audiences that could have been made but were not made at the time. For this purpose, it may be useful to imagine yourself in the role of a policy analyst for a government organization, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
