News from Jan 10, 2019
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has been funding various Seasonal Schools since 2004 in the frame of its "Summer Schools Abroad" program. CGP is happy to announce another successful application, funding its 14th annual summer school in China as well as its 5th school in Vietnam. The schools are targeted towards students of International Relations/ global politics as well as related fields (late Bachelor's/ early Master's level). GPSS Vietnam will take place March 17-29 under the guiding theme "Southeast Asian and European Concepts on How to Manage Global Problems" and is jointly organized with CPG's long-standing partner "University of Social Sciences and Humanities of Vietnam National University-Hanoi". Additional cooperation partners are the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Pannasastra University of Cambodia as well as Konrad Adenauer Foundation's offices in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. The Call for application can be downloaded here: https://www.seasonal-schools.org/Call-for-Applications/_media/CfA-GPSS-Vietnam-2019.pdf GPSS China will take place in mid-July and further information will follow in the upcoming months.
In addition to the long-time seasonal schools program, for three years now, the Center for Global Politics has organized annual workshops for PhD and PostDoc students in Lviv, Ukraine. DAAD has renewed its funding through the program line "East West Dialogue", allowing CGP to organize its 4th Global Politics Workshop Ukraine in cooperation with the Ukrainian Catholic University. This year, the workshop will take place from April 12-20 under the guiding theme "Conflicts and Democracy". Again, the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine presents the background against which discussions will take place. The CfA will be sent out in the upcoming days.
