2022 Global Scholars Academy
July 18, 2022 @ 8:00 am - July 24, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
From July 18 – 22, 2022, Harvard Law School’s IGLP will collaborate with The Graduate Institute, Geneva to convene the second annual Global Scholars Academy at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary, made possible with generous support from the Open Society University Network (OSUN).
About the Academy
Drawing on the interdisciplinary resources and global networks of both institutions, this venture aims to strengthen the next generation of scholars and university teachers by placing them in conversation with their global peers and strengthening their ability to rethink a global architecture ill-equipped to deal with the world’s most urgent challenges, from global poverty, inequality and injustice to conflict, migration and environmental change.
The Global Scholars Academy is an intensive residential experience designed to enable junior faculty and post- doctoral 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 is open by application to advanced junior scholars working to understand and map the levers of political, economic, and legal authority in the world today. We particularly welcome applications from scholars from the Global South and those working on policy challenges of concern to communities in the Global South.
Building on the IGLP’s decade of successful workshops and the Graduate Institute, Geneva’s dedication to high-level interdisciplinary research, the Global Scholars Academy will engage a growing community of scholars developing new thinking about the world’s most pressing policy challenges. While in residence, participants will workshop their ongoing research, review current scholarship developments, reconsider canonical texts, and network with colleagues from across the world.
