Next Generation Symposium
The five-day symposium will examine international security challenges from a gender perspective and bring together an international cohort of 24 graduate students (MA and PhD students). The symposium is scheduled to take place November 12-19, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
The symposium will feature interactive lectures and seminar discussions on the gender dimensions of international security challenges. In addition, symposium participants will receive professional development and skills training, including how to effectively communicate with the media, write for policymakers, and leverage social media. Participants will also gain exposure to government agencies, international organizations, and think tanks.
Finally, symposium participants will be invited to actively participate in the first workshop of the WPS+GPS research and book project. This project brings together leading scholars and experts across disciplines and across the globe to take stock of WPS+GPS efforts and define the research and policy agendas for the future. WIIS will seek to pair graduate students with senior members of the research and book project and encourage them to set up joint research and writing teams. In addition, selected participants will be requested to write two blogs following the symposium.
