CNS Fellows Spring 2015: CNS Director Bill Potter with Spring 2015 Visiting Fellows

CNS Director Bill Potter with
Spring 2015 Visiting Fellows

Last week, the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) bid adieu to yet another group of Visiting Fellows, who underwent CNS’s intensive, semester-long nonproliferation training program. The Spring 2015 Fellows included three junior researchers from Pakistan and Columbia, two governmental officials from China and Yemen, and a university faculty member from Bulgaria (see below for a full list of fellows and their affiliations).

Throughout the semester, fellows participated in a rigorous lecture series tailored specifically for them. They also audited select classes offered to MIIS students under its Masters in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies program. In addition, they had ample opportunity to meet and network with prominent experts in the field, including those from CNS as well as other organizations.

Fellows spent a significant portion of their fellowship working on their independent research projects, which they presented at the end of their program.

CNS experts served as their mentors and research advisors. On May 4-5, fellows delivered their presentations to CNS staff and students, and they all received certificates of completion for their training at CNS.
