About CICS Activities and Events
CICS sponsors a number of activities throughout the year and encourages the interest in international and comparative studies. In 2012-2013, CICS brought more than six nationally recognized speakers to campus to discuss current affairs with students, faculty and the Houston community. The Center also orchestrated a conference on oil and gas development in Latin America and brought local and national experts together for the UH and broader Houston community. In 2014, CICS has hosted speakers and experts on international relations between the US and India, Iran, and Russia, along with an expert on Lebanon's Hezbollah movement. CICS also hopes to sponsor research projects on topics including culture and democracy, oil nationalization, and the prediction of state collapse. These projects will involve UH faculty and students at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
