In January 2020, the Institute for Global Law & Policy at Harvard Law School and the The Graduate Institute Geneva will convene a pilot “Global Scholars Academy” in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Academy will be an intensive residential experience designed to enable junior faculty and postdoctoral scholars to engage in sustained, interdisciplinary, peer-to-peer collaboration under the close mentorship of research faculty drawn from the world’s top universities. The Academy will be open by application to advanced junior scholars working to understand and map the levers of political, economic, and legal authority in the world today and will offer a unique interdisciplinary curriculum focused on issues of significance for scholars and policymakers in the global South.
Preference will be given to scholars who are from the Global South, 2-5 years post-PhD and currently hold postdoctoral posts or faculty positions. All accepted participants will be expected to submit an 8000-word piece of academic writing in advance of the Academy to be discussed with colleagues in intensive writing workshops.
The deadline to apply is Friday 20 September via www.iglp.law.harvard.edu
