COVID-19 was a terrible and turbulent time for everyone and was an especially difficult time to be studying as the world turned to online teaching mediums. However, one positive to the shift online is that it is easier now than ever to be a member of your international community. This resource will cover the benefits of getting involved in your international community and easy ways to immerse yourself.
Being a Member of International Networks
As one of the first UK-based students to be a part of the APLS student committee, I am really excited to be part of an international community of researchers and practitioners working in Psychology and Law. In addition to my role within the student committee, I am also a research assistant within the Rights for Time Network – an international organisation that brings together academics and practitioners to explore how time affects war, displacement, and violence in order to progress conversations about humanitarian protection. I am also a member of the UK-South Korea Eyewitness network that fosters collaborations to improve the documentation of eyewitness memory evidence globally. All the aforementioned networks are either free to join or for an extremely subsidised fee as a student, so there is no better time to immerse yourself in international research.
Benefits of International Networking
Ways that you can get Involved!
Being a member of your international community does not need to be as difficult or as expensive as you think. Happy Networking!
