October 17, 2013
The Berkley Center Junior Year Abroad Network (JYAN) connects Georgetown students studying abroad at universities around the world. Students share reflections on religion, culture, politics, and society in their host countries, commenting on topics ranging from religious freedom and interfaith dialogue to secularization, globalization, democracy, and economics. In the seven years since the program began, more than 350 students have participated, studying in nearly 50 countries. This report brings together blog excerpts from students who studied abroad during the 2012-2013 school year, covering topics ranging from minorities and immigration, national identity and culture, religious diversity, and political activism to gender and engaging difference at the local level.
