Annually, the Center provides support to faculty affiliates to mount mini-conferences on topics related to their research interests. These small conferences are meant to bring together academics, policy-makers, students and community members from across the globe around specific issues with the hope of initiating important discussions and collaborative efforts that might be sustained over an extended period.
