We would like to announce the first edition of the Bergen Summer Research School on Global Development Challenges, to be held in Bergen, Norway, 7-17 August, 2008.
The theme for 2008 is Global Poverty understood as a global challenge, affecting advanced, developing and less developed economies. Our program offers nine different PhD courses and academic as well as social and cultural activities. The city of Bergen is known for its distinctive beauty and charming ambience, which will be the inspirational backdrop to lectures, group work, plenary debates and discussions on Global Poverty.
PhD-students and Junior Researchers from the whole world are invited to apply. We think this will be an excellent opportunity to acquire new knowledge and meet with PhD-candidates and experts in an international unique setting.
The Bergen Summer Research School is a joint venture under the leadership of the University of Bergen, with the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH), the Christian Michelsen Institute on Human Rights and Development (CMI), the Bergen University College (HIB) and UNIFOB.
You will find the application form and more information about the BSRS on our website www.gdc.uib.no. The deadline for submitting the application form is April 15, 2008.
Please forward this information to colleagues and candidates. Apologies for cross postings.
For questions, please contact coordinator Kirsti Thesen Sælen, firstname.lastname@example.org
Best regards from
Vice-Rector for International Relations, University of Bergen
