The Institute for Leadership and Strategic Studies, the College of Arts and Letters, and the UNG Press are pleased to announce a symposium on Leadership in a Complex World: Private Military Security Companies’ Influence on International Security and Foreign Policy. The symposium will be held on November 14-15, 2018, and will contribute to the scholarly discussion of this increasingly complex and important issue. U.S. or international scholars, graduate, and undergraduate students are invited to submit abstracts for papers or posters on topics related to the theme.

The symposium review committee will select the most relevant and highest quality submissions for between nine and twelve scholars to present and discuss at the symposium. Undergraduate submissions will be considered for poster sessions. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to present as members of panels during the symposium. Extended papers from the selected abstracts will be published by the University of North Georgia Press in a peer-reviewed and edited symposium monograph.
