Global Issues Symposium

Oberlin College launched the Global Issues Symposium in 2016, designed to bring renowned scholars, policy practitioners, and activists to campus to discuss crucial transnational issues with the college and community. Each year features a specific transnational issue, and brings a diverse cohort of speakers to offer equitable representation in dialogues needed to address the most pressing issues of our times. This year’s theme is “Militarization of Global Politics, Economy & Society.” 

The symposium series is organized by the International Studies Concentration Committee and funded through a generous donation from the Isenberg Family Charitable Foundation.
