Junior Year Abroad Network Annual Report 2011-2012
May 16, 2013
The Junior Year Abroad Network (JYAN) connects study abroad students in a global conversation on religion, politics, and culture. During the 2011-2012 school year, 61 Hoyas in 30 countries on five continents—from Bolivia to Egypt to Tajikistan—shared their experiences and observations through a series of blogs that are posted on the Berkley Center website. Part of the Doyle Engaging Difference Initiative, JYAN is structured as an online conversation that includes participating students, faculty, and the wider Georgetown community. This report brings together blog excerpts on topics ranging from religious freedom and interfaith dialogue to secularization, democracy, and economics.
