Welcome to Politics in the Field, the most in-depth and comprehensive manner to learn about the political, social, and economic dynamics of the country or region experienced during our trips. The objective of Politics in the Field is to seek out individuals, primarily undergraduate or graduate students, who are interested in politics and who will utilize the program to serve as a platform from which they will bring back to their host country newly ascertained knowledge and transnational experiences from the various discussions with the political, economic, and academic leaders of the host country during the program. Given the fact that the most efficient channel of communication is through personal dialogue, your participation in our policy trips will allow you to understand the socio-political and economic structure of the host country, as well as provide you with the opportunity to become equipped with knowledge of the most recent ‘hot topics’ in the country through our daily meetings and conversations with the countries leaders.
At Politics in the Field, we aim to promote mutual understanding between the leaders of the respective host countries and our participants from all around the world. Through our program, the participants will be able to expand their network, build new friendships, and find new opportunities as a result of their time spent in various countries through political agendas, sets of round table meetings, social activities such as sightseeing, and academic discussions.
We look forward to seeing you in our trips and to have you as a contributing member of Politics in the Field.
