The Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion is collaborating with NYU's Center for Global Affairs and Open Society Justice Initiative to convene a dedicated week-long programme on statelessness for early/mid-career academics. This will take place from 5-9 June 2017 at NYU in New York, United States. Click here to download the flyer: http://www.institutesi.org/flyer_workshop_June2017.pdf
The specialised workshop on statelessness for early/mid-career academics provides a forum for meeting and sharing expertise with peers, exchanging ideas with practitioners and participating in an expert meeting on statelessness. The programme, which will be facilitated by leading academics and practitioners in the field, is designed to push participants to look beyond their immediate research focus and explore the bigger picture, to consider their own work through a new lens and to debate unresolved questions. It also offers a springboard for collaboration, including through pairing up participants to design a concrete writing project which they will deliver in partnership following the workshop. Two days of the five day programme are dedicated to participation in the first ever Expert Meeting of academics on Statelessness, Citizenship and Inclusion. This invitation-only roundtable event will bring together approximately twenty leadings scholars from around the globe to collectively explore how scholars have engaged with statelessness in the past, and how we may contribute to a more sustained, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral engagement with the topic going forward. Participants in the early/mid-career workshop will have the unique opportunity of joining this meeting, inputting into this agenda-setting discussion and taking the agenda forward.
Only ten to twelve early/mid-career academics will be selected for participation in this unique programme by a panel of academics and practitioners.
