PORDIR explores the influence of religion and religious beliefs and spirituality on theory and practices of international diplomacy and on the global actors’ system. Co-founded in 2006 by Prof. Wolfgang Danspeckgruber and The Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, the year-long weekly seminar will draw on nearly two decades worth of success, providing a space for students, scholars, community, national, and spiritual leaders to discuss pressing issues of our intense time.

This year, the theme will be Human Security, Resilience, and Technology – Tackling Challenges for Gender & Generational Policies and Technology.

The fellowship is open to Princeton graduate and undergraduate students - applications due October 9, 2021.
