Dear reader,

Owing to the short deadline (3 July), we are exceptionally circulating the announcement below about funding which has become available for presenters at this year's LDRN conference, on behalf of the organizing team at the University of Leiden. If this is of interest, please respond to the conference organizers directly.

Best wishes,
The LDRN team

Dear all,

This is to inform you about the availability of travel funding for presenters at the Third Annual Conference of the Law & Development Research Network who otherwise are not able to participate in the conference. Thanks to funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are able to grant travel funding for some participants who are presenting at our conference. The travel funding covers an international airplane ticket , accommodation fee for 3 or 4 nights (depending on your travel itinerary), the conference fee and VISA costs when applicable.

This funding is only meant for those who otherwise would not be able to participate at the conference for lack of funding. If you meet this condition and if you would like to apply for it, please send us the following documents before July 3rd :
  • Motivation letter of maximum 400 words, stating why you think you should be eligible for the funding. Relevant factors include merit (e.g. relevant work experience or prior publications in the field), and hardship (e.g. if you have dependents).
  • An estimation of your travel and VISA cost
We expect that we will be able to inform you about the decision before July 10.

Best Regards, on behalf of the organizing committee,

Hoko Horii
