This summer’s first Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Global Forum takes place Wednesday, July 30, from 1 to 5 p.m. at International House, 10 College Park in Davis.

Eighteen speakers from 15 countries will discuss their research and what they hope to learn during their studies in the United States to bring back to their home countries.

The Humphrey Program brings accomplished mid-career professionals from designated countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Eurasia to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate study and related professional experience.

President Jimmy Carter instituted the Humphrey Fellowship Program in 1978 to honor Hubert Humphrey, the late senator and vice president, who was a longtime advocate of international cooperation and understanding. UC Davis Extension has hosted the Humphrey Fellows for the past 18 summers for their pre-academic orientation and training.

Thursday’s speakers are from Mauritania, Kosovo, Brazil, China, Algeria, Haiti, Ukraine, Myanmar, Pakistan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Congo (Brazzaville) and Mongolia.

Their fields of interest include teaching English as a foreign language; public health policy and management; trafficking in persons, policy and prevention; public health policy and management; finance and banking; public policy analysis and public administration; substance abuse education, treatment and prevention; economic development; communications and journalism; law and human rights; educational administration, planning and policy; and urban and regional planning.

Some of the topics they will be presenting on include reporting from federally administered tribal areas in Pakistan; the three M’s — military media and militants; the role of social networking in the current Ukrainian crisis; and social and cultural stigma on girls’ education in Mauritania.

Fifteen additional Humphrey Fellows will speak at a second Global Forum at International House on Thursday, Aug. 7, from 1 to 5 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.
