Peace Be Unto You.

Irvan Tengku Harja is my name.
I have recently received the Russian Government Scholarship for the period of the study years 2018-2021. The level of education is the Master Degree with the educational program in International Relations and the specialty is Regional Approaches to Global Environmental Security at Saint-Petersburg University. As the Russian Government Scholarship does not provide transfer to University, living expenses, and health insurance, I have to work during my study. For these issues, I do not have a problem.

The main problem is, during my study in Russia, I leave my wife and my baby girl at home in Indonesia. So, if I have gone to study in Russia, I would not have a regular income anymore to fulfill my family living needs, because I have to leave my job. The only roadblock is the source to fulfill my family living expenses while I study in Russia.

As I have known,  Saint Petersburg University provides a good specialty on Regional Approaches to Global Environmental Security study. That programme success creates professionals and experts in the global environmental security field.

At the heart of environmental security studies is a profound contradiction: while ‘human transformation of the environment is a global-scale problem’, and while humans are connected by ‘pervasive flows of people, goods, money, ideas, images and technology across borders’, we remain ‘fragmented by the political division into sovereign states’. This state-centered fragmentation further divides us by values, perspectives, and approaches to ‘security’, be it national, regional, or individual. As questions regarding climate change, planetary boundaries, mitigation and adaptation measures, and appropriate governance structures have moved to the global center stage in environmental politics debates, the conversation around the environment and security has, in my view, never been more divisive. Throughout my study, I am going to think about these issues.

These environmental issues are going to be challenging me, and I am passionate about solving these issues, especially if I can produce a new approach to make a better environmental security system, at least in Southeast Asia region. I eager to be given this challenge to contribute an idea related to the environmental issue. The target of my post-study is being a professional or expert in environmental security fields.

Thank you for your attention. If God wills, your contribution will help me, my family, and encourages me to make a better environmental security for the peoples in the world. Of course that my vision is also your vision, and our vision is a long-term agenda. So, let us start!

Peace Be Unto Us.
