New Delhi, India, 2020 participant
"Candidly, I was apprehensive about the effectiveness of the programme since it was being conducted online for the first time in the Institute’s history due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, my apprehensions were completely unwarranted since the sessions were not only extensively well-researched but also exceptionally well-presented, despite any apparent logistical constraints.
The faculty members, each a renowned expert in their respective fields, did a stellar job of explaining the broad contours and frameworks of vast subjects like environmental governance, global health and the different paradigms of humanitarianism and security in international relations, all in a very short period of time. These sessions have now given me a strong foundation and a clear direction to understand and approach the field of international relations."
