As the relative power of the United States’ global competitors increases, key aspects of global security rest increasingly on the capacity of great powers—China, the EU, India, Japan, Russia, and the United States— to cooperate in tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Among these are climate change, cyber security, illicit trafficking, pandemics, proliferation, and terrorism. Because of their transnational nature, collaboration amongst great powers is essential to address these challenges; yet cooperation is hardly guaranteed. Can adversarial relationships be set aside, frayed alliances restored, and old arrangements re-purposed to achieve the broader common good?
On January 27, at 6:30 p.m. EST, the Center for Careers and Internships and Middlebury in DC, in collaboration with the Middlebury Professional Network and the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, will host Live From DC: Global Security and Great Power Relations, a discussion among professionals who have a variety of vantage points on these and other transnational security issues and possible solutions.
This discussion will be conducted via Zoom webinar, connecting the professional guests with students from both the Middlebury and Monterey campuses, as well as, alumni and parents of the Middlebury community. The panelists include:
- Host: Mark Williams, Director, Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, Middlebury College
- Stewart M. Patrick P’24, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
- David Wisner ’04, Deputy Director for Press & Strategic Communications for Near Eastern Affairs Bureau, State Department
- Stone Conroy ’10, Manager, Geopolitical Analysis & Intelligence, United Airlines

We actively seek applicants from traditionally underrepresented in government leadership, including people of color, first generation college students, women and gender non-binary individuals, members of the LBGTQ community, and individuals from low-socio economic backgrounds.
Apply to GFA if you see yourself:
- Leading with equity
- Creatively solving problems
- Telling stories to mobilize action
- Using data to make choices

The Center for European and Mediterranean Studies (CEMS) at New York University is pleased to announce a call for applications to its Masters in European and Mediterranean Studies program.
Applications for Fall 2021 are being accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Tuition scholarships will also be offered to candidates accepted to the MA program. It is recommended to apply as soon as possible, as funds are limited. The Master’s in European and Mediterranean Studies is an interdisciplinary program in the social sciences and humanities that is designed to prepare students for professions in the public, non-profit, or private sectors requiring an advanced understanding of Europe and the Mediterranean region. Our graduates also go on to pursue Ph.D. studies in history, political science, international relations, international development, and a range of other fields.
In addition to courses offered by the CEMS Department, graduate students may take classes with a European/Mediterranean focus offered by other departments—including, but not limited to, history, politics, anthropology, cinema studies, French studies, Italian studies, Irish studies, and many other disciplines. Students may also take courses at other NYU schools—such as the School of Law or Graduate School of Public Service—as well as at Columbia University, through a special Consortium agreement existing between the two institutions.
CEMS students have the advantage of being part of a small department with dedicated faculty, ensuring close access to professors, while being part of a large research institution with a wide variety of resources available to them. Additionally, if students want to gain more professional experience, they can take advantage of the many internship opportunities in New York City, most of them for academic credit. Students can also broaden their studies with various opportunities abroad, and are encouraged to apply for summer grants to perform research, to work, or to study abroad. In the past, our candidates have received funding to study at one of our several NYU campuses abroad, to work at various NGOs, think tanks, and other European organizations, or to carry out research either independently or in the program of their own choosing.
For any inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1.212.998.3838
