2019 Global Affairs Conference

Security in International Studies:
Current Considerations, New Directions

2019 Annual Global Affairs Conference
Rutgers Division of Global Affairs, Newark, NJ, Friday, April 5, 2019

The Rutgers Division of Global Affairs was pleased to host the 2019 Annual Global Affairs Conference on Friday, April 5, 2019 at Rutgers University-Newark.  This year's conference theme was "Security in International Studies: Current Considerations, New Directions," and aimed to address various challenges facing humanity in the 21st century.  The conference agenda also focused on expanding and redefining national security with greater focus on formerly exclusive human security issues such as climate change, immigration, and economic security.

With its annual conference, the Student Association of Global Affairs sought to provide a space for students and scholars to broaden this conversation.  Successful applicants presented their research on the following and related topics of global affairs:

  • National security threats in contemporary global affairs
  • Environmental issues including environmental degradation, resource depletion, non-renewable energy, etc.
  • Nuclear proliferation
  • Immigration & human trafficking
  • Proxy wars in the Middle East
  • Terrorism and unconventional warfare
  • Global poverty and inequality
This conference sought to create an interdisciplinary conversation on these topics, and we thank our participants (graduate students and early career scholars) for their hard work.
