As a participant, Adam Bethke has been selected from a strong applicant pool to experience the UK on a month long summer program. He will be studying themes of government and citizenship while experiencing culture in the United Kingdom firsthand.
He hopes to gain a more global perspective on issues of government, citizenship, identity and security during the Fulbright Summer Institute. During the Fulbright Roehampton University Summer Institute, he hopes to expand his world view and gain a better understanding of the underlying concepts of politics, citizenship, and culture in the United Kingdom.
Commenting on receiving the place, Adam said:
“This is a phenomenal opportunity. The program, which will explore themes of politics, identity and national security, is directly related to my academic interests in political science and criminal justice. In addition to the academic correlations, the program will provide me an opportunity to gain an insight into how the issues that I have been studying here in the United States are dealt with in other countries. I am hopeful that this opportunity will expand my horizons and provide me a better balanced perspective by exposing me to different world views.”
