The Fletcher IDEAS Exchange (FIE) is an annual forum for public speaking at The Fletcher School. Modeled as a TED-type event, the second annual FIE will feature engaging speeches by faculty, students, alumni, and guests around the theme of a human security approach to peacebuilding – why it matters and what are the challenges.   Some of the talks will center on perceptions of legitimacy in the governance of conflict–affected and fragile states, as well as related aspects of human security, development and peacebuilding.
