Event Description

The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will host a Student Research day on Friday, December 6, 2019. Student Fellows in LISD's Project on Gender in the Global Community (GGC) will present and workshop their year-long research projects with student colleagues from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) as part of a day-long symposium convened at Princeton University. GGC student fellows' research projects are being undertaken as part of their participation in the fellowship in Gender and Security." SIPA students will present research projects that are being undertaken as part of a course, directed by Professor Yasmine Ergas, focusing on the international backlash to gender rights. It will be the third annual research day sponsored by the GGC project.

Participation in the Research Day is open to present and former GGC fellows and invited guests.

The Student Fellows Program is an integral complement to work undertaken as part of LISD's Project on Gender in the Global Community. Student fellows are chosen annually from a variety of departments and programs and meet twice monthly on Tuesdays during the lunch hour throughout the academic year. The monthly meetings combine discussions of readings and students’ ongoing research, with presentations by invited scholars, policy makers, civil society representatives, and governmental and diplomatic practitioners. Over the course of the year, fellows pursue independent, academically rigorous research. It is co-convened by Beth English, director of the Project on Gender in the Global Community, and Barbara Buckinx, director of the Project on Self-Determination and Emerging Issues. 

A selection of research papers by the 2018-19 cohort of Gender in the Global Community student fellows is currently in production. An earlier selection of GGC fellows' work was published as the first volume of LISD's Student Research Series in summer 2018.
