Harvard Law School IGLP/Global Scholars Academy of Stellenbosch University 2023

Deadline: October 7, 2022

Applications are invited for the Harvard Law School IGLP/Stellenbosch University Global Scholars Academy 2023. The Global Scholars Academy is an intensive residential experience designed to enable young faculty and postdoctoral scholars to engage in sustained, interdisciplinary, peer-to-peer collaboration under the close mentorship of research professors from the best universities in the world.

Building on the Institute for Global Law & Policy’s (IGLP) decade of successful workshops and Stellenbosch’s dedication to high-level interdisciplinary research, the Global Scholars Academy will engage a growing community of scholars developing a new reflection on the world’s most pressing political challenges. During their residency, participants will participate in workshops on their ongoing research, review current scholarship developments, review canonical texts, and network with colleagues around the world.

The 2023 Academy will offer a unique interdisciplinary program and will include thematic mini-courses, plenary lectures and writing workshops. The writing workshops will provide participants with the opportunity to receive detailed and valuable feedback on their research from their peers and senior colleagues in small groups.
