Graduate students studying political science, anthropology, history, law, sociology, and philosophy are encouraged to participate. Students will write 800 - 1,000 word essays responding to a recent work on international law, international organization, or international politics. The first book we will be reading and discussing is Jennifer Rubenstein's Between Samaritans and States: The Political Ethics of Humanitarian INGOs.
