AGS International Graduate Student Conference 2018

By Jen Retter | February 12, 2018

This year’s American Graduate School (AGS) International Graduate Student Conference will focus on “Refugee Politics in International Relations.” In addition to graduate students, this conference is open to senior undergraduates with faculty recommendation.

The conference will bring together inquisitive graduate students and scholars, as well as practitioners from NGOs, government agencies, and intergovernmental organizations to review, assess, and challenge the notions of displacement in today’s international arena. It will seek to expand the discourse on the political, economic, and social implications of migration as nations reexamine policies in response to these crises, as well as further our understanding of the various causes of displacement. It will look as these issues in relation to such aspects as conflict, international law, human rights, security, identity, and transcultural exchange.

This conference is organized by graduate students enrolled in the M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy program conducted at the American Graduate School in Paris in partnership with Arcadia University. It will be hosted at the American Graduate School in Paris, in the 6th arrondissement- five minutes from the Luxembourg Gardens and the French Senate.

Paper submissions are due by March 5.
