University Consortium at Harvard: Week-long training in Euro-Atlantic relations

We are currently organizing a second iteration of the University Consortium module—a week-long program of intensive training on issues related to Euro-Atlantic relations. The module, funded by the Carnegie Corporation, seeks to create a strong network of graduate students, and particularly master’s students, in our field. The consortium itself consists of two American universities (Harvard and Columbia), two European universities (Frei and Oxford) and two Russian universities (MGIMO and HSE), and graduate students from these schools form the foundation of the audience at the module events.
