The Project on International Peace & Security (PIPS) is an undergraduate think tank, working to merge the academic and foreign policy communities. PIPS is premised on two core beliefs: (1) rigorous policy-relevant research is a valuable component of a student's education; and (2) undergraduates, when guided by faculty and policymakers, can make meaningful contributions to national security debates -- their creativity and energy are untapped resources. PIPS will hold a symposium for members of the campus community at William & Mary on Thursday, April 16, 4:00-5:30 p.m. at the Sadler Center in Chesapeake Room C. The discussant for the presentation will be Professor Sue Peterson.

The fellows' presentations will cover a range of security challenges:
-Improving foreign aid to Bangladesh to prevent sectarian conflict in India
-Developing online classes for civil servants in fragile states to strengthen governments
-Using community intervention and peer policing to counter the health and political impact of fast-paced epidemics
-Unmanned underwater vehicles as the next insurgent threat
-Combating the radicalization of Western women on the internet
-Adopting a schoolhouse model for UN administered refugee camps.
