Organized by Bishop’s University and the Centre for Security and Crisis Governance (CRITIC) of the Royal Military College St. Jean, and supported by the Network for Strategic Analysis (NSA) and the International Security in the Globalization Era (ISGE), the Quebec Undergraduate Security Conference (QUSC) is currently calling for proposals from undergraduate students as part of the fifth Annual Security Conference for Undergraduate Students.

This year, the conference will be focusing on the following four themes (more details in the conference themes document above):

  1. Climate and Environment Security
  2. Gender, Peace, and Security
  3. Globalization, Technology, and International Security
  4. The Implications of COVID-19 on Peace and Security

Students who wish to participate to the conference are required to submit a 300-400-word abstract in English or French focused on one of the four topics above to qusc.bu@gmail.com before December 16, 2021. Students whose abstracts are approved by the QUSC project will be then informed by December 21, 2021, to proceed with the completion of their paper.
