Following the conference on 10 November 2007 there will be organized a separate activity for the participating PhD students. This will be a roundtable taking place at NIAS in Copenhagen or at Lund University. The roundtable offers the PhD students an opportunity to present their thesis work and relate it to the theoretical insights from the conference.
The aim of the roundtable is to extract insights from the conference, discuss them and relate them to the various projects the PhD students are undertaking.
The roundtable features two presentations by newly graduated PhDs who will address the theoretical implications they found when working on Asian security issues. Subsequent, the roundtable will continue the discussion of how insights from Asia and “Asian” dimensions of security can contribute to the theoretical development. The discussions will be based on the papers of the conference and additional presentations by the PhD students who are invited to make presentations dealing with the theoretical and empirical challenges they have face in their work.
The roundtable will be moderated by two senior researchers who have taken part in the conference.
Students are expected to earn ECTS-points for their contributions after agreement with their respective institution.
More information on this activity will be posed on the website in 2007. Until then you are welcome to contact Project Coordinator of the Asian Century Research School Network (ACRSN) for more information:
