MIPP & GPP Virtual Information Session

The Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Office of Admission invites you to learn more about the Master of International Public Policy (MIPP) and the Master of Global Policy Program (GPP) degree by joining an online information session. Current SAIS MIPP students, and Executive Education and Admissions staff will be present to answer your questions about the admissions process, the student experience and the impact your SAIS education could have on the world. 

The MIPP is designed for experienced professionals with seven or more years of relevant work experience, who wish to develop the advanced analytical and leadership skills necessary to formulate and advocate policy on key international issues. Students have the advantage of designing their own curriculum consisting of eight non-language courses (worth a total of 32 credits). They may also affiliate themselves with an academic program to gain in-depth insight into a specific field of study. Students complete the program in one academic year while on leave, sabbatical or seeking employment post-degree.

The GPP is similarly designed for experience professionals with seven or more years of relevant work experience, who wish to pursue their studies on a part-time basis.  It is a 16-month, cohort-based, program with classes meeting on alternating Fridays and Saturdays. The curriculum includes four residencies offered at key points of the program to maximize learning. The Global Policy (GPP) curriculum enables students to immediately integrate the knowledge they gain in the classroom to their internationally-focused careers. 

This session will be hosted online using Adobe Connect. If you have never used Adobe Connect, ensure your computer and network connections are properly configured to provide you with the best possible experience beforehand:http://www.adobe.com/go/meeting_test.

The academic program is the same for both groups and consists of interdisciplinary course work in international relations, economics and languages. Individuals proficient in Mandarin may pursue the HNC Certificate and SAIS MA by completing two semesters in Nanjing to receive a certificate in Chinese and American Studies, combined with two or three semesters in the MA program. One of these three semesters must be at the Washington campus.

Making Democracy Work: Civic Action and Extra-Institutional Pressure in Central and Eastern Europe

With internal and external forces undermining the unity of the European Union, growing dissatisfaction with the post-authoritarian transition to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe should not be ignored. From Moldova to Macedonia, endemic corruption, poor public services, government mismanagement, and self-serving political parties are increasingly undermining genuine democracy, trust in governments, and living standards. What recourse do regular people have – beyond resignation, despair, radicalization or migration? In many instances, they are mobilizing together in civic campaigns or social movements. They are challenging the corrupt status quo, resulting in resignations, early elections, transnational investigations, environmental preservation, and more accountable health care. Are these manifestations of growing instability or a bottom-up force to (re)claim democracy and reconfigure relations between citizens and states? Can dysfunctional or captur ed politics and institutions reform on their own or is extra-institutional, nonviolent pressure needed to push for change? Join us for a lively conversation.

Washington, D.C.: Malka Older B’03, ’04 and Blair Glencorse B’03, ’04 on "The Future of Decision-Making: Democracy, "Infomocracy" & Accountability"

Can you imagine a future where democracy has evolved into micro-democracy and governments compete for dominance across tens of thousands of tiny jurisdictions in a global election? Imagine any centennial of one hundred thousand citizens able to vote for any government it wants, and governments knitting their scattered constituents together with virtual technology and common laws. That is the reality in Infomocracy,  a science fiction political thriller by debut author Malka Older, an experienced humanitarian aid and development worker. Infomocracy offers a thought experiment for how democracy - and its competitors - can evolve in a global, digital age, and how such adaptations might affect our societies. The Accountability Lab works with people to build accountability mechanisms with their own governments supports grassroots processes driving adaptation in the present. So come join us for a discussion of the book, issues of democracy, participation, and governance, and the future of decision-making for all of us. This event takes place at: OpenGov Hub - 1110 Vermont Avenue Northwest #500, Washington, DC 20005.
