CNM’s Participation at Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation

Marie Angela Ordoñez recently presented at the 2nd Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Papua New Guinea Communications Capacity Building Workshop.

Held at the historic Port Moresby between December 7 and 8, the workshop aims to help the government of Papua New Guinea foresee and overcome logistical and communications challenges as the country prepares to host the APEC forums in 2018.

The presentations were based on her experience in coordinating operations as a government communications officer when Philippines hosted APEC in 2015, with topics spanning from media evaluation and messaging traction, to crisis management, and inter-agency coordination and media operations.

Marie, or Magel as we know her in CNM, is currently a 2nd year Master’s candidate. She is working on her thesis with Dr. Elmie Nekmat to examine the formation and effects of public opinion perception on individual expression and information credibility evaluation in social media.

We wish Magel the best for her studies and look forward to her future contribution to the field!

CNM doctoral student selected for Yale University’s Fox International Fellowship Program (FIFP)

Satveer KaurDoctoral student Satveer Kaur has recently been selected for the Fox International Fellowship Program (FIFP) at Yale University. The Fox International Fellowship is a graduate student exchange program between Yale and 19 world-renowned partner universities, including NUS. The Fellowship is awarded to graduate students who have the potential to become leaders in fields that are policy significant, historically informed, socially meaningful and interested in developing scholarly knowledge to respond to the world’s most pressing challenges. The Fellowship also seeks to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries by promoting international scholarly exchanges and collaborations among the fellows.

“I am deeply honoured to have been nominated by the department to put in my application for the Yale Fox Fellowship and to have received news of my successful application thereafter. The program brings together scholars from different fields working on issues that impact society globally, by creating interdisciplinary spaces for intellection and dialogue. The Fox fellows have already started touching base, and what has been evident is the many scholars undertaking meaningful research that significantly impacts society. I look forward most to meeting different stakeholders, auditing relevant classes at Yale, and presenting my research on migration to my colleagues”, says Satveer.

CNM wishes you the very best, Satveer!
