Mark Your Calendars! Join Panelists to Discuss the State of Global Security and Great Power Relations -1/27 @ 6:30 PM EST

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

Job Opportunity Working on China Policy & Economy @Stanford

This opportunity for graduating seniors and young alums from Alexis Medina at Stanford (REAP) has been posted in Handshake with a March 31st deadline: https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/4318414/share_preview

“We’ve launched a new research center for the study of China’s economy. The formal name is Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions, or SCCEI (pronounced “sky”). REAP will still continue to exist, but our work on rural development will now be just one part of the Center’s new initiatives. This year, a lot of our stuff will still be branded as “REAP”, but moving forward, you may start to see “SCCEI” floating around more often. 

We are hiring for an academic editor again, and since we have had so much success working with Midd kids in the past, I wanted to make sure to pass along the job description. Start date is flexible – we are figuring probably summer or fall for graduating seniors, although I know Febs might be earlier.”
