|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||M-STO/04|
Seminars and initiatives providing CFUs are learning activities offered by the Department of Political and International Sciences as part of the “Other Activities” to be included in the study plan. At the beginning of each academic year, the Department publishes on its website a list of activities related to each seminar so that each student can choose which seminar activities to include in his/her study plan for a total of 3 CFU. These 3 CFU can be reached by combining seminars from the same or different disciplines at the total discretion of the student. In addition, seminars and initiatives providing CFUs may also be chosen as “Student Choice Activities”.

Participating to the activities.
The simulation is based on role playing and requires both homework and regular and active participation in class.
During the diplomatic simulation, students are invited to fill the role of a delegate from a member country of the international organization identified by the teacher. The required work will take place in three phases. In the first phase, once the diplomatic headquarters has been identified (conference of the Big Three, European Council, European Parliament or other organisation), an agenda is proposed which includes the topics for discussion. In the same phase the students are divided by countries, on which it will be necessary to understand their history and international position. In a second phase, each delegation will have to prepare one or more resolutions relating to one or more points on the agenda. Finally, the resolutions will be presented in the Assembly and the delegations will work diplomatically to get their resolutions approved, subject to modifications dictated by the negotiations.
Students with certification of ASD, disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact both the contact person Prof. Aristide Canepa (firstname.lastname@example.org), and the teacher, at the beginning of the course, to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the objectives of the teaching, take into account the individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory instruments
