A public event series, sponsored by the Starr Foundation of New York, we bring to the MIT campus leading academics, policymakers and journalists to discuss pressing issues in the world of international relations and U.S. foreign policy.
CIS Starr Forums are always free events that are open to the general public, as well as to the MIT community. Most events do not require a ticket or registration, however, seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Offered throughout the year, Starr Forum events focus on a wide array of global topics, bringing together experts in the field for lively discussion and thought-provoking conversation. The format can range from book talks to panel discussions to film screenings - but events always conclude with at least 30-minutes of audience Q&A discussion. Limited complimentary light refreshments are available prior to the start of the event. For questions about event accessibility or to request accommodations please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-253-8306 as early as possible.
Most events are filmed and recordings are available on the
