Periodically throughout the academic year, departmental faculty organize roundtables on contemporary issues in public & international affairs. Sometimes these are offered through the annual symposium of JMU's School of Public & International Affairs, sometimes through the JMU Washington Center, and at times they are sponsored directly by the Department of Political Science. During the 2016-2017 academic year, roundtable topics included: Europe after the Brexit vote; U.S. foreign policy; refugees & human migration; and political corruption.
