Scholarships available: EDOLAD Summer School | North-West University, Potchefstroom, South Africa | 1 – 6 March 2020 (deadline: 20 December 2019)

The European Joint Doctorate in Law and Development (EDOLAD) will hold its annual summer school for doctoral researchers on 1 – 6 March 2020 at North-West University (NWU) Potchefstroom, South Africa.

The week-long summer school is targeted at doctoral researchers and early-career academics in the broadly defined area of Law and Development. The school brings together doctoral candidates from the South and North together in small groups for intensive interaction and broader knowledge-community building.

The school is comprised of skills training in conducting qualitative fieldwork and in communicating research findings; it combines this with writing workshops, in which participants will critically engage with one another about their own work. In addition, the summer school includes keynote lectures, panels and roundtables on a selected theme. This year’s theme is made up of two pressing topics: decolonising our field, and data justice.

Six scholarships are being offered to candidates based at African institutions. These scholarships will cover travel, accommodation and other expenses up to a maximum of € 1000.

Deadline: 20 December 2019
