Foreign Affairs LIVE: Graduate School Fair 2018

Council on Foreign Relations


Foreign Affairs’ fifth annual Graduate School Fair is produced in partnership with the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) and sponsored by The Robertson Foundation for Government (RFG). This year’s panel discussion is based on the lead package from the magazine’s July/August 2018 issue entitled “Which World Are We Living In?” The panelists will present their theories of the world (Realist, Liberal, Tribal, Marxist, Tech, or Warming), and ask the audience to pick their sides. The discussion will be followed by the Graduate School Admission Fair featuring over two dozen of the most prestigious universities in international affairs and public policy.
