ISDP Brown Bag Lunches

As a complement to the Institute’s regular forums, starting in Spring 2019, ISDP will host a series of informal “Brown Bag Lunch” sessions. These will allow policy makers and researchers to meet, discuss, and showcase ongoing research on a range of topics in the field of security and international affairs in Europe and Asia. Rather than presenting full papers, the sessions aim to provide an open setting where researchers can raise fresh ideas and receive constructive feedback on how to improve and develop their studies further. Sessions can also simply focus on brainstorming around developing issues in international affairs.

The events are open to all who are interested and take place at ISDP’s offices on Västra Finnbodavägen 2, 7th floor, Nacka. Coffee is served, but participants bring their own lunch.

If you are interested in either participating or presenting, please send an email to
