Group projects

Students in the Krogh seminar examine a major issue in international affairs and work on an independent research project related to that issue. This year’s theme centers on the politics, law, and economics of climate change. We will collectively study how climate change intersects with many of the other issues we study in SFS such as trade, capitalism, democracy, human rights, conflict and migration. Students will then individually or in small groups produce research that focuses on a specific aspect of this broader theme or a specific country. No prior in-depth knowledge of climate change issues is required.
