Havard International Security Conference 2017

Application deadline:September 5, 2017

Doctoral students conducting research on international security are invited to submit papers to the Harvard International Security Conference to be held on October 14-15, 2017. The conference is designed to provide doctoral students with feedback on their research from peers and faculty outside their home institutions, and build cross-institutional relationships among the next generation of international security scholars.

Eligibility

  • Doctoral students and faculty members from political science and public policy programs.
  • Research papers may focus on any substantive topic and employ any research methodology, so long as the core question is directly tied to international security.
  • Although doctoral students at any stage are welcome to apply, we anticipate the workshop being especially useful for students on or nearing the academic job market.

Conference Format

Accepted participants will be notified by September 15, 2017. Roughly a dozen graduate student participants in total are anticipated. In order to facilitate an in-depth discussion, graduate student participants will be required to read a select number of papers and provide written feedback prior to the conference. The conference will consist of sessions of both graduate student and faculty presentations; each graduate student participant will have a panel workshop devoted to improving his or her research project. This will include comments by a faculty member outside his or her host institution, as well as focused comments and discussion from other participants who will have reviewed the paper in advance. In addition, conference participants will have multiple opportunities to engage and socialize with other students and faculty participants throughout the weekend, including catered meals on Saturday and Sunday, as well as a conference dinner on Saturday evening.

Financial Support

Graduate student participants will be compensated up to $500 for their travel and/or hotel expenses. Participants also have the option of staying with a student host in the Cambridge area, which the conference leadership will coordinate.

Application Process

  • Submit a full research paper along with a separate copy of the abstract.
  • The paper will be evaluated based on progress and quality.
  • Papers may be single- or co-authored.
