About the Graduate Student Symposium
Celebrating its 21th year in 2018, this impressive and well-attended Symposium draws together Canadian and international MA and PhD students; members of the Department of National Defence; members of the Regular and Reserve components of the Canadian Armed Forces including Officer Cadets; as well as scholars, defence industry stakeholders, government officials and leaders, for one full day of presentations, discussions, professional development, and networking.
The overarching theme of the Symposium is “Canada’s Security and Defence Interests”, and suggested (but by no means exhaustive) presentation/panel topics may include: Canadian Defence Policy Review – Where are we now?; Canada and Alliances; Peace Operations in an Unstable and Dangerous World – back to the future or a new approach?; The Institution of Defence – Defence Industry and Procurement; Defence Personnel – Policies for the millennials and beyond; Emerging Operational Environments – Cyber, Space, and Terrorism/Radicalization; Canadian Military Campaigns and Operations – Past and Present.
