2016 Milton Wolf Seminar on Media and Diplomacy Emerging Scholars Program
Initiated in 2001, the annual Milton Wolf Seminar in Vienna, Austria explores cutting edge issues related to media and diplomacy. It is designed to bring together a diverse group of individuals representing multiple perspectives and nationalities. Attendees include: diplomats, journalists, academics, NGO professionals, and graduate students. The 2016 Seminar will take place from April 4-6 and explore the theme: “The Paris Effect: Journalism, Diplomacy, and Information Controls.”
Each year the seminar organizers select approximately 5-10 outstanding advanced MA candidates, PhD students, post doctoral students, law students, or equivalents studying areas related to the seminar theme to serve as Emerging Scholar Fellows. Selected Fellows receive economy class airfare, accommodation, and a food and local travel stipend, which covers all costs of attending the Seminar. In exchange for full funding,
Emerging Scholars attend all seminar discussions and events and serve as a member of our blogging team and author a 2000-word blog post documenting and analyzing the seminar discussions.
