For American college students, studying abroad is an opportunity to explore a new country, sample a unfamiliar culture, and meet people from very different backgrounds. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation is worried that some of those new friends might actually be foreign spies.
The FBI has produced a new film, Game of Pawns, to warn students of the "possibility that a foreign intelligence service might try to recruit them while abroad to eventually steal secrets from the U.S. government." The half-hour movie is based—somewhat loosely—on the story of Glenn Duffie Shriver, who studied abroad in China and later was induced by intelligence officers there to apply for American government jobs.
In addition to the video, the FBI has created a resource for students abroad, which is at: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/counterintelligence/student-brochure. Many of the same considerations listed above, would also apply to use of this resource, and any others created by the FBI.
OISP is always looking for student photos and videos of their time abroad to feature on our Facebook and website. Have a photo/video you would like to share with your peers? Email this to firstname.lastname@example.org!

Northeastern student Marisa Diaz, majoring in Political Science, was recently featured in a speech by Australian Senator Gallacher about the internship she completed while studying abroad at the Australian National University. Senator Gallacher stated, "Marisa's work ethic was impressive, and one of the things I found to be invaluable about the internship was that she came to the position with a fresh new perspective and was looking at the topic with a fresh set of ideas. Any program capable of producing that is worth taking on." To read the complete feature, please click here.
Marisa commented, "My internship in the Australian Parliament House for Senator Gallacher was the best experience of my undergraduate career! Learning about Australian politics hands on, from the heart of the Australian government was an opportunity that can not be beat!".
