Dyan Mazurana presents at the third annual Fletcher Ideas Exchange

The night of October 25, 2016, Feinstein research director Dyan Mazurana presented at the third annual Fletcher Ideas Exchange (FIE), hosted by The Institute for Human Security at Tufts. FIE is an annual forum for public speaking, modeled as a TED-type event.

This FIE featured talks discussing strategies for successfully bridging the academic-policy gap – how to better understand the challenges and how actors on both sides of the divide can overcome them. Talks addressed best practices of the academy effectively communicating research, and using innovative dissemination strategies in order to highlight the most effective ways to bring research to bear with policymakers.
