EFSD Student Fellows, Emerging Foreign and Security Dimensions


The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination has hosted a seminar on Emerging Foreign and Security Dimensions. The seminar discusses emerging security challenges from strategic developments, inter-state and intra-state perspectives, self-determination, climate and environmental issues, to migration and leadership challenges in the region spanning from Vancouver to Vladivostok.
A key feature of the seminar is the participating student fellows, chosen through a competitive application. Student participants were chosen from a variety of departments and programs, bringing their specific academic backgrounds, interdisciplinary methodologies, and professional experiences to bear on key issues related to religion and international politics.

Participating students are required to complete brief assignments/commentary (ca 2,000 words) after each seminar and compose a ca 6,000-word final paper by end of Fall Semester. Selected papers will be presented at an international meeting abroad at Spring 2019.
