Ninth Doctoral School on Latin American, European and Comparative Regionalism
Bringing together PhD students and other promising young researchers, the Ninth Doctoral School, organised by UNU-CRIS and the Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar Sede Ecuador, will deliver a series of lectures by leading academics in the field of Latin American, European and Comparative Regionalism, and afford the next generation of researchers the opportunity to discuss and develop their research projects in tutorial sessions.
Taking place virtually from 20-24 September 2021, the Doctoral School will benefit doctoral students and other early-career researchers from across the social science spectrum, in various stages of their research projects, seeking answers to questions within the framework of Latin American, European or Comparative Regionalism.
The Doctoral School seeks to establish a network of researchers dealing with regionalism, based at universities across Latin America and beyond.
The Doctoral School is bi-lingual (English-Spanish).
"The comparative perspective offered by school gave me an excellent opportunity to move beyond one region (or one organization) and to discuss the implications of similar processes in different parts of the world. Given that I also teach Latin American studies, these insights were precious."
"En la escuela, no solamente tuve el privilegio de exponer mis ideas, sino de debatirlas a un nivel profundo e interdisciplinario, con futuros doctores, expertos y líderes regionales y globales, a quienes ahora llamo amigos".Carlos Arturo Villagrán Sandoval, Guatemala."
