Students tackle vulnerability & ‘methodological anxiety’ at first LDRn PhD School

During the week of 11 – 15 June 2018, fifteen PhD candidates from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America gathered for the first annual Law and Development Research Network (LDRn) PhD school, hosted by the Institute for Human Rights, Åbo Akademi University, Åbo, Finland.

Titled “Vulnerability and Resilience: Questions for the North and South“, the week’s programme focused on these cross-cutting themes in terms of both substance and methodology, and offered plenty of opportunity for lively exchanges with peers and experts, receiving individual feedback, and sharing questions and advice on the research and writing process.
