In anticipation of its 100th anniversary, the Walsh School of Foreign Service is organizing an annual Centennial Event Series. Each year leading up to the 2019-2020 centennial year, SFS will choose an important theme around which to plan programs for the Georgetown and Washington, DC communities. Featuring experts and practitioners in international affairs and other disciplines intersecting with the theme, the Centennial Event Series will demonstrate the reach and relevance of SFS scholarship and its impact on key global issues.

The 2016-2017 Centennial Event Series theme is The Environment.

New Challenges to Human Security: Environmental Change and Human Mobility

April 11, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Institute for the Study of Diplomacy invites you to the launch of its working group report: New Challenges to Human Security: Environmental Change and Human Mobility.


Environmental changes, resulting from climate change and man-made environmental shifts as well as long-term, natural changes, increasingly affect global patterns of mobility and settlement. These changes, both profound and subtle, in many cases put human security at risk.
