To compete and thrive in the 21st century, democracies, and the United States in particular, must develop new national security and economic strategies that address the geopolitics of information. In the 20th century, market capitalist democracies geared infrastructure, energy, trade, and even social policy to protect and advance that era’s key source of power—manufacturing. In this century, democracies must better account for information geopolitics across all dimensions of domestic policy and national strategy.
Working in a small team with students from Harvard Kennedy School and schools from across the Arctic, you will choose a topic in which you are interested, interview one or more influential people in that field and create a podcast to be published by the Arctic Initiative.
You will take part in training sessions with experts in communications, interviewing skills and audio-visual editing and be supported throughout the process.
Training sessions will take place on Mondays in October/early November, meeting via zoom at 4pm EDT (12pm AKDT, 6pm West Greenland, 10pm Norway/Sweden, 11pm Finland). After the training sessions, teams will determine their own meeting times.
Students will need a stable internet connection and be willing to commit to the entire program.
