Security

FSI scholars produce research aimed at creating a safer world and examing the consequences of security policies on institutions and society. They look at longstanding issues including nuclear nonproliferation and the conflicts between countries like North and South Korea. But their research also examines new and emerging areas that transcend traditional borders – the drug war in Mexico and expanding terrorism networks. FSI researchers look at the changing methods of warfare with a focus on biosecurity and nuclear risk. They tackle cybersecurity with an eye toward privacy concerns and explore the implications of new actors like hackers.

Along with the changing face of conflict, terrorism and crime, FSI researchers study food security. They tackle the global problems of hunger, poverty and environmental degradation by generating knowledge and policy-relevant solutions.

IET/CORE电脑协助教学奖学金项目:奖学金“提前承诺”能否改变一切?

在中国,上大学的花费总额每年需10000-12000元不等。大学这四年的开销,相当于一般贫困线家庭年收入的60倍。尽管相较5年前,现在大学生可以获得的资助和奖学金机会越来越多,然而那些真正需要资助的学生并没有获得这些资助和奖学金。另一方面,即使存在一些针对农村贫困学生的资助项目,但实际上贫困学生对资助项目可获得性知之甚少,导致这些奖学金项目没有发挥其真正的作用。
