Second Workshop of Young Scholars from the Global South (WYSGS-2)
Geneva, 30 October to 3 November 2006.
Following the success of the first workshop held in October 2005, the Institute is pleased to announce the second workshop for outstanding young scholars from the Global South specializing in the study of international relations, broadly defined, mainly from the perspectives of history, political science, law, and economics. The aim of the workshop is to help incubate 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. Candidates will typically be nearing completion of their Ph.ds at a southern university. Exceptionally, fresh Ph.ds from southern universities working within the region, and students from the south nearing completion of their Ph.ds on south-related topics at northern universities may be considered. 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. Selected participants will be expected to present their research at the workshop. English will be the working language.
WYSGS-2 will be held from 30 October to 3 November 2006. All participants will be provided accommodation and receive a contribution towards living expenses. The Institute will also cover return excursion fares for participants enrolled at southern universities. Interested candidates satisfying the above criteria may e-mail a letter of self-introduction and motivation, attaching a detailed CV with contact details of two referees and a 2000-word summary of the Ph.d. project, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 June 2006. Candidates without e-mail may send their applications in an envelope marked WYSGS-2 to Ms Denise Ducroz, Graduate Institute of International Studies, 11A Avenue de la Paix, 1202 Geneva, Switzerland to arrive by 12 June 2006. Women are encouraged to apply. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
