A primary objective of this event is to promote student perspectives on US global engagement. To that end, we invite students to submit papers for a student journal that will accompany the event. Papers should provide an original youth perspective on one of the following topics:
- The future of US global engagement
- The US in the global economy
- The evolving definition of US security
- Approaches for defining and promoting global justice
- The role of citizens, people’s movements, corporations and other non-state actors in addressing global challenges
- The future of US-Muslim world relations
- How we define and build global citizenship
- We will accept abstracts or full papers. Abstracts are accepted through March 18. Successful abstract applicants will be notified by March 22. Full papers will be accepted through April 1.
- Papers don’t have to be based on original research, but they should provide a timely and fresh youth perspective. Papers will ideally be anchored in the context of the 2012 election year, discussing current debates, approaches and solutions.
- Papers should be at least 1000 words, and no more than 5000.
- Other forms of media will be accepted, including videos and photo essays.
- AIDemocracy will feature papers on our website and in conference materials.
