IGLP Asian Regional Workshop
Applications are now being accepted for the IGLP Asian Regional Workshop, organized by the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School and hosted and sponsored by theThailand Institute of Justice in Bangkok 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. The week features a stimulating series of plenaries, lectures, roundtables, writing workshops, and networking opportunities, in addition to a variety of innovative mini-courses related to law and policy. There is no cost to attend and travel scholarships are available.
About the IGLP
The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) atHarvard Law School is a collaborative faculty effort to nurture innovative approaches to global policy in the face of a legal and institutional architecture manifestly ill-equipped to address our most urgent global challenges. Global poverty, conflict, injustice and inequality are also legal and institutional regimes. The IGLP explores the ways in which they are reproduced and what might be done in response. We aim to provide a platform at Harvard for new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements, with particular emphasis on ideas and issues of importance to the global South. Professor David Kennedy serves as Institute Director.
