Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Eric French, Doctoral Candidate in Political Science. The recent confrontation between China and Japan over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands is just one of many territorial disputes over islands, atolls, and shoals in the Sea of Japan, the East China Sea, and the South China Sea. Erik French will lead a discussion about the underlying reasons for these disputes.  Are there common elements of history, geography, and law that explain these disputes?  What do these conflicts say about nationalism, resources, and regional cooperation?”

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
