Research and Projects


EPIIC provides unusual opportunities for students to conduct research and investigative journalism projects related to its annual theme, both at home and abroad.

The Institute for Global Leadership has supported more than 1,900 students traveling to more than 95 countries since 1986.

Students are able to take advantage of connections forged during the colloquium and symposium to pursue their interests and to create meaningful long term projects.

Students are encouraged to develop their own topics, such as: Nuclear Proliferation and World Order; The Responsibility to Protect and Libya; The role of the United Nations Secretary-General; Cyber Technology and World Order; The Future of the European Union; The United Nations and Human Rights; The future of NATO; and The Rise of Populism.
