Upcoming CISSM Events

sign up for cissm event updates

CISSM Global Forums have been a lunch-time tradition at SPP for over 20 years now. We hold biweekly events during the academic year featuring international policy-oriented speakers from the broader DC area. CISSM also regularly holds ad hoc special events.

CISSM Global Forums and special events bring together faculty, students, and practitioners to discuss how solving current policy challenges requires sophisticated understanding of factors and dynamics at the heart of our research and teaching agendas.
Nancy Gallagher CISSM Director
