Possible topics may include: economic trends; political parties; education reform; public health; reproductive trends; trafficking and other cross-border criminal activity; and other related topics.

Junior scholars will be chosen based on a national competition to present their current research on the topic of the Symposium. Grants will be awarded to approximately ten junior scholars.

The Symposium is scheduled to take place in early April 2009 in the
Washington, DC, metropolitan area and will involve two full days of reviews of current research projects, roundtable discussions, and the development of policy recommendations.
