James Rogers: Making international partnerships at Stanford

Danish Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS) is about excellent research and groundbreaking ideas – but also about international outreach and collaboration. DIAS Assistant Professor James Rogers is currently at Stanford University (California) as a research fellow – and he is busy facilitating and initiating new partnerships and collaborations across the Atlantic.

James Rogers is DIAS Assistant Professor in War Studies at University of Southern Denmark. His research focuses on drone warfare, contemporary security policy, and the history of warfare. At the moment he is at Stanford University in California.
 “It has been fantastic to be at Stanford University, creating connections, promoting the DIAS, CWS, and broader SDU research agenda, and holding joint research events. The collaborations do not stop once I return back to Denmark, however.
James Rogers states – and he continues:
Stanford scholars will be heading to SDU in 2020 and close links have been forged with the Hoover Institution at Stanford, Denmark’s Tech Ambassador Casper Klynge, and a number of start-ups in Silicon Valley. In fact, with colleagues from the Centre for War Studies, we will be entering a joint funding bid on counter drone technologies that will involve the technology expertise of those based in California. This is just the start of a great number of international partnerships!”

 James Rogers is quite enterprising and he is now also the co-convenor on a new international network and working group on War Studies under the wings of BISA (British International Studies Association).
He explains:
 “The war studies discipline has suffered from a lack of diversity and inclusivity in the past and this Working Group seeks to examine issues in War Studies in the broadest and most inclusive sense possible. We seek to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas, the dissemination of high quality and innovative research, and for member and wider societal networking.”
