Clients: Doctoral students, PhD’s, Post-Doc, tenured professors. The Program is reserved for mid-career faculty in international affairs or any of our Policy Center specialties.

Our conference cruises reduce the time commitment, while allowing Clients to publish two papers, network with an international group of peers, and learn new skills to stay sharp in their field.

Present your research to an international audience
Importance: This Program is perfect for Tenor Track professors and aspiring professors. Our Policy Commissions bring in experts in vast areas of specialization to look at overseas policies. By studying comparative policies a level of understanding happens which can then be used in your national pursuits. We double the size of our normal publications from 10 pages to 20 pages and require one policy review over three or more countries. Focus is on understanding key policies first and then helping to make them better. This Program promotes career growth on many levels and encourages publishing, self-improvement, and collaboration skills at the national and international level. It's important for tenured professors to get off their campus and test themselves, grow their networks nationally and internationally, and continue to stay sharp in their discipline while gaining new policy skills.
Key Achievements for Clients:
Publish two policy papers, one personal policy review & one collaborative Policy review
Learn from international peers, a local cultural perspective on international policies
Grow your network away from your campus, gain international professional connections
Gain Policy skills or sharpen them
