International Summer Symposium on Science and World Affairs

Our annual summer symposium brings together young scientists from across the globe to discuss international security and arms control issues.

Funded in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation, the International Summer Symposium on Science and World Affairs encourages the development of young security analysts, researchers, and policymakers.

Since the first meeting in 1989, the symposium has hosted over 500 scientists and researchers in China, Russia, Germany, the United States, and elsewhere.

The symposium aims to encourage and cultivate young scientists working on international security issues, and to expand and diversify the international arms control community.

Past symposiums led to the establishment of the first independent arms control research center in Russia; the first program on peace research and education in Pakistan; and the first university-based security and arms control studies program in China.
