Global South Scholar-In-Residence Programme, Switzerland: International affairs, development studies, international economics, international relations, international law, international history and politics

The Institute is pleased to welcome academics from Africa, Asia and Latin America for a period of one semester.
Candidates are invited to apply to the programme. Successful applicants will be able to take advantage of their period in residence to update their teaching curricula, participate in teaching courses, further their research projects and contribute to enriching the intellectual life of the Institute.
Priority will be given to university teachers – with a preference for women and junior academics – who will seek to apply the benefits of their stay at the Institute upon returning to their own institutions.
Thanks to the generous support of a Swiss foundation that wishes to remain anonymous, the Institute will welcome three participants each semester who will spend between three and five months at the Institute.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 1 March 2011 for the autumn semester; 1 October 2011 for the spring semester
