University of California Conference on International Cooperation

The University of California Conference on International Cooperation (UCCIC) is an annual conference that brings together International Relations scholars from across UC campuses to discuss research in progress, share ideas, and provide mentorship for junior International Relations scholars at UC institutions.
Founded in 2016, UCCIC aims to cultivate a community of scholars who work in areas such as international security, foreign policy, international political economy and international organizations, to increase academic dialogue across UC campuses, and to support the next generation of International Relations scholars. All IR scholars from UC institutions are invited to attend the conference.

Since 2019, UCCIC has been organized in cooperation with the IGCC, which has provided generous funding to make the conference possible.
