Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce the Foreign Policy Analysis (FPA) and Role Research Group's second annual Symposium at the University of Edinburgh!

This year, it is our objective to firmly establish the study of foreign policy on the academic map of Scotland and the wider UK. We are seeking to bring together, and build a stronger network of, researchers interested in foreign policy broadly defined. This event will be an invaluable opportunity to connect with fellow scholars and students, engage with current foreign policy issues and concepts, share your own work and collaboratively move foreign policy research forward.

It will be a one-day event consisting of two exciting formats. In the morning, a Foreign Policy Café will be held to foster a lively discussions around key themes underpinning the study of foreign policy, including the role of identities, interests, beliefs and leadership in shaping states' foreign policy decisions and strategies. The afternoon session will consist of workshops for participants to discuss their research in greater detail. This is a fantastic opportunity to receive in-depth feedback on working papers. The breath of research presented will ensure stimulating and constructive conversation.

Registration will be from 10am for a 10:30am start, lunch will be included, and we expect the official part of the day to finish at 4:30pm. We then hope to be able to continue our discussions over a glass of wine and food.

If you are interested in presenting, and gaining constructive feedback on a piece you are currently working on as part of the afternoon workshops, do let us know by emailing Victor Gigleux at s1369220@sms.ed.ac.uk.
