The Royal Danish Defence College is happy to announce its second annual PhD. Games at Frederiksberg Castle in Copenhagen.
This two-day seminar focuses on discussing the participating Ph.D.-students’ work through a number of collaborative paper sessions, while also inviting prominent external keynote speakers to give lectures relevant to scholars within security-, military, and IR studies.
To welcome as many PhD-candidates as possible from the above disciplines, the seminar does not have an explicit theme, but seeks instead to create a mutually inspiring and enquiring space in which the Ph.D-students can present their work and give peer critique to their colleagues and other scholars.
The seminar is free of charge, but can only accommodate a limited number of participants. Moreover, it is ex-pected that most participants are able to pre-circulate and present a paper at the seminar to their peers, taking, however, into account where individual students are in their respective projects.
