IGLP: The Workshop is an intensive residential program designed for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty. This initiative aims to promote innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, and social justice in the aftermath of the economic crisis. IGLP: The Workshop will bring 50-100 young scholars and junior faculty together with a core group of senior IGLP faculty for serious research collaboration and a unique series of lectures and intensive interdisciplinary debates.
While in residence in Doha, participants will review current scholarly developments, reconsider canonical texts, and network with colleagues from around the world. Our aim is to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers as they develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance. Intensive writing workshops offer participants the opportunity to receive valuable feedback on their own research from their peers and more senior colleagues in small group settings.
The 2013 Workshop will continue to seek ways to deepen the network of collaboration among our Workshop Alumni as well as invigorate our core program with new participants and themes. We will focus new attention on comparative law as a constituent part of global policy and legal practice, on the potential to renew the Arab tradition of law and governance, and on the modern significance of the Islamic legal tradition. We will continue our effort to stimulate new thinking about the legal foundations of global monetary affairs, economic development policy, global political economy and the struggle for social, political and economic justice.
