The Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar and United Nation University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) will organize a summer doctoral school on “Latin American, European and Comparative Regionalism” in Quito, Ecuador, on 23-27 July 2012.
The aim of this doctoral school is to bring together a group of PhD and other young researchers for a series of lectures by leading senior academics in the field of Latin American, European and Comparative Regionalism and to discuss their research projects in tutorial sessions. Doctoral students from all social science sub-disciplines in various stages of their research projects dealing with Latin American regionalism or comparative regionalism are invited. The intent is to establish a new network of researchers dealing with Latin American regionalism, based at universities throughout the continent and beyond.
The doctoral school is bilingual (English and Spanish). It will consist of morning lectures followed by tutorial sessions and visits to regional organizations in the afternoons.
Five scholarships are available for South American participants.
The application deadline has been extended to 15 May 2012. For more information, see the Call for Applications on the UNU-CRIS website.
