GLFs gathered for 6th Annual Colloquium in Princeton
From 4-6 May the Global Leaders Fellows met in Princeton for the 6th annual GLF Colloquium. The Colloquium – which brings together current and previous GLFs and leading Oxford and Princeton academics – is a highlight of the GLF year. It provides an opportunity for GLFs to meet and exchange ideas across cohorts, both discussing academic research and reflecting on the Programme as a whole and their post-GLF career trajectories.
This year Oxford-based Fellows Tu Anh Vu Thanh and Akachi Odoemene and Princeton-based Fellows Alexander Kupatadze, Fuzuo Wu and Pichamon Yeophantong presented their research-in-progress on topics ranging from corruption in Eastern Europe to ‘land grabs’ in Africa to nuclear energy and climate change negotiations. A group of expert academics from around the world were present to comment on the papers, as well as previous GLFs Arunabha Ghosh, Ousseni Illy, Leany Lemos, Anar Ahmadov and Jiyong Jin. The previous GLFs contributed to the vibrant discussion about the papers, and reflected on their post-Fellowship experiences.
