Panel: Graduate Working Groups on Global Issues

March 31, 2021 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

In this panel, representatives from the Graduate Working Groups on GlobalIissues will discuss how COVID-19 has impacted their work this academic year.

Originally started in 1997 through a grant awarded to Duke University Center for International & Global Studies (DUCIGS) by the Ford Foundation, for over two decades this program has supported graduate working groups across campus, each comprised of students from an array of departments, programs and professional schools who gather to discuss topics with a global focus. Included among the themes represented this academic year are ocean policy; global perspectives on artisanal and small-scale gold mining; and corruption in developing countries. Currently, DUCIGS is hosting 11 such groups, some of which will be represented in the panel.
