About the ACUNS-ASIL Summer Workshop Program

The ACUNS-ASIL Summer Workshop is an annual program intended to bring together emerging scholars and practitioners who are at a relatively early stage in their careers. The purposes of the workshop are, first, to encourage new directions and new ideas in the analysis of international organizations; second, to establish and strengthen contacts between international relations scholars and the United Nations practitioners; and third, to stimulate advanced research and teaching in the specific workshop subject matter. Participants will prepare and present individual research papers, actively discuss others’ research presentations, and engage in meetings, guest lectures, and site visits in The Hague. Participants in the workshop will gain scholarly and practice-based knowledge and applied skills in the analysis of a number of issue areas related to the workshop theme.
