From April 12 to April 21, 2010, the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) hosted a group of students and faculty from Moscow’s Institute of U.S. and Canada Studies (ISKRAN). It was the seventh annual visit conducted as part of the joint Collaborative Education and Cooperative Security Project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to train the next generation of U.S. and Russian security experts. ISKRAN is part of the Russian Academy of Sciences and is home to the School of World Politics and International Security.
During their visit, the Russian students participated in several meetings with Maryland School of Public Policy (MSPP) faculty and in a joint-policy exercise in a class on “International Security” taught by CISSM research director, Prof. Nancy Gallagher. The students also met with a range of experts and policy makers to discuss U.S.-Russian relations.
