5th Global Issues Conference

Worldwide, March 30th – April 3rd, 2020

Join GIC5 Sessions

Open to all students, instructors, and staff from GPE Member Institutions

The Global Issues conference is an on-line conference focusing on original research about issues of significance to our global community. While primarily a student conference, students, faculty, and staff at GPE Member institutions are invited to present their research that explores the interconnected nature of the global issues as well as the local context of global issues.

During the weeklong virtual conference, there will be thematic sessions at various times to allow presenters in different time zones to participate. Original, research-based presentations on a wide array of topics are welcome (See the call for papers below). Presentations are followed by moderated discussions that encourage the sharing of localized perceptions about the issues being presented.
