The Canadian Institute of International Affairs’ (CIIA) annual Youth Symposium brings together students and young professionals from across the country and young Canadians studying abroad to present, discuss, and debate their research and ideas on a topical international affairs issue in an environment of academic peers. The Youth Symposium is held in conjunction with CIIA’s annual National Foreign Policy Conference (NFPC) with symposium participants being offered travel and accommodation subsidies in addition to complimentary NFPC registration.

The 2006 Youth Symposium focuses on Development and Global Inequality and consists of three consecutive panels:

(a) Poverty and Security;
(b) Governance, Conflict, and Natural Resources; and
(c) Canadian Development Policy

Each session is composed of three or four panellists presenting their papers with a moderated discussion to follow; all symposium participants take part in all sessions. Symposium participants are selected on the basis of paper abstracts or statements of interest submitted in late January and early February.

Please see the call for abstracts below for information on where to submit your abstract or statement of interest and for travel and accommodation subsidy details.

We are grateful for the support of Scotiabank, the 2006 CIIA Youth Symposium’s title sponsor, and Paramount Resources Ltd., the symposium’s gold sponsor. Their generous contributions allow promising young scholars to share their research, to engage in discussion and debate in a novel forum of their academic peers, and to establish academic and personal networks that would otherwise not have been possible.
