YIA Conference on Global Citizenship — Global Voices

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Yale International Alliance Conference on Global Citizenship scheduled for March 13-14, 2020, in Rome, Italy, due to complications with the spread of the coronavirus.

We do not take this decision lightly as so many people have worked diligently to make the conference a success. However, current and projected Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization warnings dictate that we cancel the conference in the best interest of our speakers and attendees.
