851-0101-65LRegional Politics of the Arabian Peninsula Belegung eingeschränkt - Details anzeigen
Number of participants limited to 30
W3 KP2VE. Manea
KurzbeschreibungThe course examines how the internal power structures of selected arabian peninsula countries shape foreign policies and regional politics. It looks in particular at Saudi Arabia, Oman and Yemen in detail, from state formation to current affairs and from local to international government.
LernzielUnderstand the type of political systems prevalent on the Arabian peninsula, religious denominations, sectarian rivalry, and how these shape regional relations.
InhaltThe neighbouring states of the Arabian Peninsula - especially Saudi Arabia, Oman and Yemen - make for strange bedfellows. They are governed by different systems with different results, calling into question how their internal policies affect regional relations and vice versa. Saudi Arabia is a monarchy, a prosperous, religious and restrictive state increasingly facing problems of social/political unrest. Oman is a small, thriving, stable sultanate, modernised and moderate but tightly controlled; and the republic of Yemen, which has the region's poorest economy, sunk into the mire of civil ear. Each state adheres to a different Islamic sect, moreover, and though their populations are overwhelmingly Arab, differing tribal structures result in widely variant effects on the political process in their respective systems. Each state has also had extensive historical relationships with the Ottoman and British empires, the US and Russia, and these too have colored regional relations. More recent events such as the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, the American-led invasion of Iraq, the Arab uprisings of 2011 and the on-going civil strife in Yemen have further affected their dealing with one another and with the world at large. This course examines each country in detail, from state formation to current affairs and from local to international government.

W2 KP2SE. Vayena, F. Gille, J. Sleigh
KurzbeschreibungThis workshop focuses on understanding and managing the ethical and social issues arising from the integration of new technologies in various aspects of daily life.
LernzielExplain relevant concepts in ethics.
Evaluate the ethical dimensions of new technology uses.
Identify impacted stakeholders and who is ethically responsible.
Engage constructively in the public discourse relating to new technology impacts.
Review tools and resources currently available that facilitate resolutions and ethical practice
Work in a more ethically reflective way
InhaltThe workshop offers students an experience that trains their ability for critical analysis and develops awareness of responsibilities as a researcher, consumer and citizen. Learning will occur in the context of three intensive workshop days, which are highly interactive and focus on the development and application of reasoning skills.

The workshop will begin with some fundamentals: the nature of ethics, of consent and big data, of AI ethics, public trust and health ethics. Students will then be introduced to key ethical concepts such as fairness, autonomy, trust, accountability, justice, as well different ways of reasoning about the ethics of digital technologies.

A range of practical problems and issues in the domains of education, news media, society, social media, digital health and justice will be then considered. These six domains are represented respectively by unique and interesting case studies. Each case study has been selected not only for its timely and engaging nature, but also for its relevance. Through the analysis of these case studies key ethical questions (such as fairness, accountability, explain-ability, access etc.) will be highlighted and questions of responsibility and tools for ethical practice will be explored. Throughout, the emphasis will be on learning to make sound arguments about the ethical aspects of policy, practice and research.
