Here is what you will learn
Understand the historical, policy and legal context
Understand export controls in plain language
Most export control courses are for lawyers or in-house compliance personnel. They are, thus, quite complex and arcane. This deep dive will explain export controls and how they work in plain English and without compliance program jargon or legalize.
Understand the role, history, and
significance of multilateral coordination
The past and current export control policy debate are all significantly affected by the degree to which allies and other partner countries do and do not cooperate. The course will describe the evolution of the multilateral regime system, the policy thinking of allies and other countries, and the decisions the US has made to go it alone from time to time. The course will examine all the options and limitations for the next phase of multilateral cooperation to address contemporary national security and foreign policy issues, particularly with respect to China and Russia.
