Call for Applications from PhD students or recent PhDs for 2017 New Era Foreign Policy Conference being held 12-14 March 2017 at the School of International Service at American University in Washington DC.
The New Era Foreign Policy Conference is an annual two-day workshop for Political Science PhD students, post-docs, and foreign policy experts. Participants are asked to assess the medium-term challenges and opportunities currently facing the United States, to critically examine the macro-level goals that underpin American foreign policy, and to devise the strategies and policies meant to achieve these goals.
On the basis of these discussions, participants are encouraged to generate and shape policy-relevant research ideas. In the past, these ideas have contributed to participants' dissertation projects and have also resulted in conference papers, published academic articles, and pieces in policy journals. The format of the conference is a series of workshops and scenario-planning sessions, instead of the more typical presentation of papers with panels and discussants. Application Deadline: December 9, 2016.
