Striving to enhance undergraduate research culture, this conference encourages students to apply for this opportunity to showcase their work. The conference prides itself in hosting high caliber academic discussions and informed dialogue on economic, social, and political issues pertaining to our contemporary world.

Undergraduate students with original research on a variety of issues are invited to submit their papers to this year’s conference, which will take place on Thursday, March 28, 2019, at the Georgetown University campus in Doha, Qatar.

Authors of the papers selected by the AURC review board will be allocated time in the conference to present their research and interact with an audience of distinguished experts, academics, and fellow undergraduate students.
