The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination at Princeton University will host an open house on Thursday, September 25 from 3:30-6:00 p.m. in 012 Bendheim Hall. This open house represents an opportunity for Princeton University graduate and undergraduate students as well as Princeton-affiliated community members to learn more about LISD, its current projects, its publications, and ways to become involved in LISD's activities. Tea and light refreshments will be served.
The Institute focuses its research, teachings, publications, and projects on issues concerning self-determination, sovereignty, and security including dealings with communities, states, and non-state actors. LISD also addresses self-governance, boundaries, and ethnic, socio-economic, cultural-religious, legal and strategic issues. Our work assists in developing effective, sustainable, innovative ideas in order to ameliorate the situation and educate the next generation of leaders. In addition to ongoing programs on Crisis Diplomacy, Self-Determination, Religion and Diplomacy in International Relations (PORDIR), and Women in the Global Community, LISD runs digital projects like DIRMAIS and the Princeton Encyclopedia on Self-Determination (PESD.) Over the years, LISD, together with The Liechtenstein Colloquium on European and International Affairs, LCM (established 1989), has dealt with critical issues in the Balkans, the wider Middle-East and Central Asia, thus focusing on the crises in Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, and Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region, with the unfolding situation in Ukraine.
