The 8th Global South Workshop
Following the success of four previous workshops, we are pleased to announce the 8th Global South Workshop from 30 November to 7 December 2013 in Mexico City, Mexico.
The 2013 workshop is jointly organised by the Graduate Institute, Geneva and El Colegio de México, Mexico.
This workshop is open to outstanding doctoral students from the global south, being in the process of completing a PhD, pursuing advanced graduate research in areas bridging the fields of international studies and development studies, broadly defined, and working in disciplines such as anthropology, history, law, politics and political science, and economics. Scholars specialising in conflict, post-conflict societies, migration, and governance are particularly encouraged to apply. The research topic should be in international studies, preferably from southern perspectives, and/or at their intersection with development studies.
The main aim of the workshop is to help build a network of young scholars from southern countries by providing them opportunities to interact and share experiences with fellow scholars from the south, and develop collaborative frameworks and projects that may help advance the cause of southern perspectives in their fields and disciplines.
Participants will be expected to present their research at the workshop. They will also have opportunities for professional interaction with faculty and research students. English will be the working language.
Participants will be provided accommodation and receive a contribution towards living expenses. The Institute will also cover return fares for participants enrolled at Southern universities.
Candidates must fulfill the following conditions:
Applications to the 2013 Global South Workshop are now closed. Please note that due to the high number of applications, only short-listed candidates will be contacted by 25 May 2013.
All applications and accompanying information (including the summary of the thesis project) must be submitted in English. Selected participants will be expected to present their research at the workshop. The working language will be English.
Selection will be based on the quality of research. Quality being equal, selection may be guided by an interest in promoting thematic coherence at the workshop and regional diversity.
