The Centre for International Policy Studies (CIPS; University of Ottawa) and the Centre for International Peace and Security Studies (CEPSI-CIPSS; Université de Montreal and McGill University) will hold their joint annual graduate student conference on March 23, 2018 at the University of Ottawa. The theme of this multidisciplinary and bilingual conference is “Navigating Power in Global Governance and International Affairs”.
The concept of power is important to the social sciences: what it is, who has it, how it is used. We invite current and recent graduate students in the fields of international relations, political science, history, law, sociology, geography, gender studies, international political economy, international development, security studies, peace and conflict studies, and other related disciplines to submit paper abstracts. Given the theme of this year’s conference, here are a few suggestions for investigating the nature, function, and transfers of power in global governance and international affairs:
These suggested topics are provided as examples and are not meant to be exhaustive.
Students will present their research in thematic panels, each moderated by a professor or researcher affiliated with CIPS. This colloquium is an excellent opportunity for M.A. and Ph.D. students to receive feedback on their work and to network with fellow graduate students and other researchers. In addition, students whose proposals are selected will be invited to submit their final papers to Potentia: Journal of International and Public Affairs, the annual CIPS Graduate Student Journal.
Proposals and papers can be presented in English or French. To submit a proposal, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words at [email protected] by January 12, 2018. Please include your name, program of study, department, and university. Selected applicants will be required to submit their final paper by March 2, 2018.
Deadline for proposals: January 12, 2018
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
