Columbia University International Politics Seminar

The Columbia University International Politics Seminars (CUIPS) provides an essential forum for faculty and graduate students to meet and discuss cutting-edge research in international relations. The mission of this seminar series is to bring the country's foremost junior faculty in international relations to present their work at Columbia. The series also creates multiple opportunities for graduate students to meet and discuss their research with invited speakers. CUIPS is sponsored by ISERP, the Department of Political Science, and the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies.


Below you will find our schedule for the fall 2017 semester, as well as the relevant papers for each seminar session.
