Global Future of Security Spring 2016 Report
A series of high-level lectures explored a diverse set of security concerns and featured global leaders, including United Nations Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zainab Bangura, former secretary of defense Chuck Hagel, and Executive Director of the UN World Food Programme Ertharin Cousin. The initiative supported a range of other events over the course of the semester in collaboration with faculty and students from Georgetown’s schools and security-related centers and programs.
Global Futures continued to support global teaching and research at Georgetown through a co-sponsored Global Future(s) Curriculum Studio for innovative courses around global issues, a Global Futures fellows program for talented graduate students studying in Georgetown’s security-related programs, a collaborative grants program for faculty designed to deepen research connections across disciplines, and an online forum connecting the Georgetown community with wider conversations about the future of global security.
The Global Futures focus on security followed semester-long conversations on global governance and development.
