The three-day student conference will focus on the following issues and case studies, as they apply to failed and fragile states:
Committee sessions will be chaired by high-level experts from governmental, academic and non-governmental actors, and co-chaired by most qualified and well-prepared students.

Major findings and recommendations resulting from discussions will be summarized in a final report, which will be sent to relevant Canadian governmental agencies.
