The Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO), the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the International Development Economic Associates (IDEAs), are pleased to announce the call for applications for participation in the Seventh South-South Institute on INEQUALITY, DEMOCRACY AND DEVELOPMENT UNDER NEOLIBERALISM AND BEYOND. The Institute will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from November 3 to 8, 2014.
(Please note that the venue and workshop dates have been changed)
Within the ambit of the third phase of the Africa/Asia/Latin America Scholarly Collaborative Programme, a series of activities have been scheduled, among them an annual South-South Institute. The Institute is primarily designed to offer research training to younger scholars on the diverse problems and challenges facing the countries of the South. In doing so, we also seek to promote the revival and growth of comparative thinking and cross-regional networking among a younger generation of Southern scholars. As was done during the first phase of this programme, which ran from 2005 to 2007, the different sessions of the South-South Institute rotate among the three continents where the lead collaborating institutions are located, namely, Africa, Asia and Latin America. In this way, participants, who will also be drawn from all three continents, are exposed to the socio-historical contexts of other regions of the South as an input that helps to broaden their analytical perspectives and improves the overall quality of their scientific engagements.
Last date for application is 17 July, 2014.
