Each year, the NAGTRI International Fellows Program provides a forum for elite government attorneys from around the world to learn from each other, explore common issues, and establish an international network for the mutual benefit of their respective offices. Approximately 18-20 participants will be chosen for the 2016 program, which will include a combination of government leaders from the United States and abroad. Past programs have included participants from Afghanistan, Armenia, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, El Salvador, Hungary, Iraq, Israel, Jamaica, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Malawi, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and United States, among others. 

This is a challenging and demanding program, requiring full engagement in the materials, lectures, and participating fully in a group research and writing project. Selected participants will present their research findings before a prestigious panel in New York City. The 2017 program theme will be “Prosecutorial Strategies and Tools to Combat the Illegal Trade of Persons and Goods.” Fellows are not expected to be experts in this area or have experience with the issue in the course of their professional duties. Rather, the topic serves as a vehicle for the class to analyze an issue with fresh and unique perspectives. Fellows will work in groups to produce articles on this theme, which will be published in a NAGTRI publication.Fellows will also be given the opportunity to meet with senior officials from the federal law enforcement and judicial community in Washington, D.C., as well as state law enforcement officials from the area. Additionally, Fellows will participate in a host of cultural activities in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

In academic publishingpredatory open access publishing is an exploitative open-access publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals (open access or not). "Beall's List", a regularly updated report by Jeffrey Beall, sets forth criteria for categorizing predatory publications and lists publishers and independent journals that meet those criteria.Newer scholars from developing countries are said to be especially at risk of becoming the victim of these practices.

Global cities: connecting talent, driving change

We live in an era characterized by both globalisation and urbanisation with more than half of the world’s people living in cities and towns. Universities and colleges are the global connectors among the world’s fast-evolving knowledge economies and cities are the beating hearts of innovation. This urban-global age provides tertiary education institutions with unprecedented opportunities to mobilise their expertise, prepare young people for the future and drive forward research and policy agendas at the city, national and global levels. Yet the urban-global age also poses challenges for universities and colleges and the cities and towns of which they are a part, not least because of the changing nature and locations of tertiary education delivery.

Going Global 2017 explores how universities and colleges support city-regional economies and social and civic engagement, connecting the world's cities to global knowledge and talent and addressing global challenges.


  • Research and innovation
  • Talent development and flows
  • Societies and communities
  • Leadership
