2018 Graduate Education | International Affairs
CLEARLY, WE ARE NOT LIVING IN ORDINARY TIMES when the dean of a leading international affairs school says, “We are now in a phase of global problems so complex and intractable, so wicked in the true sense of the word because of the great suffering they have caused, that we have to think differently about the school’s mission.” Those are the words of Joel S. Hellman, dean of Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS), reflecting on what he thinks all schools of international relations need to do to help their students meet the daunting challenges of the 21st century.
We are now in a phase of global problems so complex and intractable, so wicked in the true sense of the word because of the great suffering they have caused, that we have to think differently about the school’s mission.And it’s apparent how tricky global challenges can be when a professor’s research points to the need for a #MeToo response to sexual harassment and assault happening among those meant to be the good guys: humanitarian aid workers themselves. The research was led by Dyan Mazurana, associate research professor and co-director of the Gender Analysis in International Studies and Women’s Leadership Program at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
In this year’s annual FP Guide to Graduate Education, you can meet leaders like Hellman and Mazurana and explore cutting-edge programs at a wide range of international affairs schools.
