The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School is pleased to collaborate with the Thailand Institute of Justice (TIJ) to bring its world-renowned Regional Workshop to Bangkok, Thailand from January 6-11, 2017.

The IGLP Asian Regional Workshop brings together young scholars of law and policy from around the world for intensive peer-to-peer mentoring with faculty from some of the world’s leading universities. It aims to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers and introducing them to cutting edge research across a variety of disciplines. The week features a stimulating series of writing workshops, roundtable discussions, lectures, and intensive courses on topics such as human rights, global finance, development, and regulation.

The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce the first Asian Regional Workshop, hosted and sponsored by the Thailand Institute of Justice in Bangkok, Thailand from January 6-11, 2017. Inaugurated in 2015, the IGLP Regional Workshop is an intensive, regionally-focused residential program that brings together an international cohort of young doctoral scholars, post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty for intensive collaboration, mentoring, and cross-training.

IGLP’s signature Workshops aim to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers as they develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance. The 2017 IGLP Regional Workshop will focus on how these issues relate to ongoing legal and policy debates throughout Asia and across the world, while offering unparalleled opportunities to strengthen participants’ writing and research.


We will convene our next intensive global Workshop for young scholars and university faculty in Madrid in July 2016 in collaboration with Complutense University. Scholars from around the world will come together for a week of serious collaboration and intensive debate with our global senior mentoring faculty. The core of the Workshop will be comprised of a series of intensive writing workshops which will facilitate peer-to-peer conversations in small groups with careful mentoring from the faculty. The Workshop will conclude with a one day Conference addressing crucial issues of contemporary world political economy convened by UCM Rector Carlos Andradas.

This initiative builds on the close link between Harvard and Complutense University forged more than twenty-five years ago through the establishment of the Real Colegio Complutense, a joint venture by our two universities. The global Workshop is generously supported and hosted by Santander Universities which has long been a friend and sponsor of the Institute and our Workshop, supporting our growing global network of innovative academics working on the most pressing issues of global law and policy. We are pleased to bring the Workshop they joined us in establishing six years ago home to Madrid!
