 As part of the NIAS activities on capacity building, the NIAS PhD course on Global Politics has started a new initiative - "Global Politics, Young Voices" - a network/dialogue of scholars working on International Relations. Through the initiative, the course aims to provide a platform for young researchers (in their late 20s and 30s) across multiple institutions in India to present/debate their thoughts amongst their peers. These discussions, after review, will be published on our Course portal -
On 24 September 2020, Thursday, 1600 hrs, we have the following discussions. Young scholars are reviewing "Peacebuilding during a Pandemic: Keeping the Focus on Women’s Inclusion" an Issue brief, recently published by the International Peace Institute. We request you to join and encourage the young scholars with your inputs and analyses.
