Please join us at this year’s Mapping the Global Dimensions of Policy graduate student conference. The conference is put on by the Department of Political Science and its partners each year. This year the conference will take place March 8-9, and is themed around the concept of Global Policy and the Discontented.

The conference features an incredible lineup of graduate student research presentations and two fantastic plenary speakers. Opening the conference will be Dr. Judy Fudge (McMaster University) with a talk titled From Combating Human Trafficking to Eradicating Modern Slavery: Assembling a Global Governance Regime, and closing the first day of the conference is Dr. Hayden King (Yellowhead Institute, Ryerson University) who will be speaking to the Inter-national Diplomacy of the Blockade: The Clash of Indigenous and Western Policy Frameworks.

In addition to the student presentations and two plenaries, we are also excited to announce our first Closing Roundtable, featuring reflections on globalization and public policy from Dr. Catherine Frost, Dr. Vera Chouinard, Dr. Mark Busser and Dr. Susan Elliott, and a professional development panel for our participants.

The programme for the event will be available shortly. If you’re interested in attending the conference you can read more on our website, where you can also find a link to the free registration. Coffee and snacks will be available throughout, with a light breakfast and lunch also served on March 9.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference in March!
