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.

One Korea Forum

Through their writings and public appearances, North Korean defectors are playing a growing role in the groundwork for re-establishing One Korea. Many work with South Korean civic groups such as Action for Korea United to spread information among the people in the North. Globally, through their often harrowing stories about the reality of life in North Korea, defectors put a human face on reports of humanitarian crises and human rights abuses. Their exposure to the power of freedom has become a driving impetus in the quest for unification of the Korean family. This forum will feature the testimony of a young North Korean and explore how to more effectively support them.

Featured Speakers

  • Dr. Edwin Feulner, Founder, Heritage Foundation
  • Ms. Grace Jo, Vice President, NKinUSA, North Korean Defector
  • Mr. Cheol Hwan Kang, Co-President, Action for Korea United; President, North Korea Strategy Center; North Korean Defector and Author, “Aquariums of Pyongyang”
  • Hon. Choong Whan Kim, Member of Korean National Assembly (17th, 18th); Chairman, Institute for Peaceful Northeast Asia and Unified Korea
  • Ms. Jenny Town, Assistant Director, US-Korea Institute at SAIS

After Fallujah: Security, Governance, and the Next Battle Against ISIS

Iraqi forces have expelled the Islamic State (ISIS) from Fallujah, but difficult work lies ahead to retake the territory still under ISIS control, provide security, and rebuild. Restoring government and the rule of law, returning the displaced, and rebuilding homes and infrastructure will be crucial for sustaining the victory. Who will have the power and legitimacy to manage local resources and services? What will it take for civilians to return? Can the Popular Mobilization Forces that played an important role in the liberation of Fallujah be demobilized or absorbed into the army, or will they remain independent power centers?

The Middle East Institute (MEI) and the Conflict Management Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) are pleased to host Robert S. Ford (MEI), Charles Lister (MEI), Jessica Lewis McFate (Institute for the Study of War), and Douglas Ollivant (New America) for a discussion of these and other questions regarding the aftermath of Fallujah, how ISIS may react in defeat, and the challenges ahead facing the liberation of Mosul.

Daniel Serwer (MEI and SAIS) will moderate the discussion with our other expert panelists.

Film Screening - Racing Extinction

Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth's history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or 'Age of Man', because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well. The Oceanic Preservation Society, the group behind the Academy Award® winning film THE COVE, is back for "Racing Extinction". Along with some new innovators, OPS will bring a voice to the thousands of species on the very edge of life. An unlikely team of activists is out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There's a hidden world that the oil and gas companies don't want the rest of us to see. Director Louie Psihoyos has concocted an ambitious mission to call attention to our impact on the planet, while inspiring others to embrace the solutions that will ensure a thriving planet for future generations. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1618448/

Voices from the Middle East: The Israeli and Palestinian Narratives of New Story Leadership (NSL)

New Story Leadership (NSL), partnering with SAIS, is proud to announce a special half-day conference featuring inspiring presentations from young leaders from Israel and Palestine who are living and working together for the summer here in Washington. They will share their insights about the on-going Israeli-Palestinian conflict and field questions from the audience in an effort to unearth how this emerging generation of young adults from the Middle East is thinking about their future, and the future of their region. The conference will also include two expert panels featuring distinguished professors and other qualified professionals from the region who will contribute their own experiences to the discussion on the conflict. 

The younger generations of Egypt, Tunisia and other countries in North Africa and the Middle East have decisively spoken up for change, demanding new leadership, greater freedom, and the right to choose their own futures. Now the younger generation of the most conflicted zone in the region also wants to speak for change, to engage you in the new conversation by sharing their stories and their hopes for peace.

If you are tired of the old story of the Middle East, of failed peace attempts and stalled negotiations, come and hear fresh voices, voices that insist on being heard because it is their future that is being shaped by conversations conducted in Washington. They are demanding a say for themselves and on-behalf of their generation.

This year, we are inspired by the words of Senator Robert Kennedy, “Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
