The Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security (ACDIS) at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana announces a one-week summer workshop in international security. Targeted are rising sophomores or advanced undergraduates from colleges and universities across the country.
The workshop has several, interdependent aims :
- inform students about key security issues;
- interact with recognized academic and security experts;
- introduce students to careers in security policy-making in private and public sectors;
- introduce students to the fundamentals of policy analysis in addressing security issues; and
- develop a self-sustaining network of students with competence and interest in security studies.
The workshop dates are June 8–13, 2014. Students completing the workshop will be awarded a Certificate in International Security Studies and will receive one hour of college credit.
