Come Join the Rutgers University Global Dialogue
Hello! Welcome to our blog, a place where students and faculty from the Division of Global Affairs (DGA) at Rutgers University will provide analysis of international current events from a variety of perspectives. With students from countries around the world – Turkey, Peru, France, Liberia and Cambodia, to name a few – the DGA is deeply rooted in New Jersey, a densely populated, diverse, and complex state that is a microcosm of the 21st Century. As such, it is in a position to be at the vanguard of world issues. Based on the urban Newark campus, just 20 minutes by train from New York City, the department has become a vital participant in the educational and professional life of the New York metropolitan area and northern New Jersey. The DGA's outreach to the region's many communities – as well as its contribution to the Newark renaissance – builds on its commitment to education and service. DGA’s research and teaching excellence is drawn from the expertise of a distinguished faculty from a variety of disciplines.
Central to DGA’s focus is the relationship between globalization and the dynamic role of governments, international and regional organizations, corporations, civil society, and local and non-state actors. These phenomena will be examined by students and faculty working in a multitude of disciplines, including anthropology, political science, law and economics, in order to address the practical global challenges of the 21st Century. We hope you will enjoy our contributions to FRANCE 24 and we encourage you to join in the discussion!
