IGLP: The Workshop is an intensive residential program designed for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty. This initiative aims to promote innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, and social justice in the aftermath of the economic crisis. Sponsored and hosted by the Qatar Foundation, IGLP: The Workshop brings together young scholars and faculty from around the world with leading faculty working on issues of global law and economic policy for serious research collaboration and debate. The full program for the 4th annual Workshop took place January 4-14, 2013 in Doha. We are particularly pleased that the Qatar Foundation hosted the Workshop as part of their larger effort to support the development of young scholars as they establish a new law school within Hamad bin Khalifa University.
In 2013, IGLP: The Workshop brought 110 doctoral, post-doctoral scholars, and junior faculty together in Doha with a core group of senior IGLP faculty from around the world for a unique series of lectures and intensive interdisciplinary debates. While in residence in Doha, participants reviewed current scholarly developments, reconsidered canonical texts and network with colleagues from across the world. Our aim is to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers as they develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance. Intensive writing workshops offered participants the opportunity to receive valuable feedback on their own research from their peers and more senior colleagues in small group settings. Qatar offered a perfect location for convening scholars from countries outside the north Atlantic area, allowing us to focus on recent developments in the region and to benefit from synergies with intellectual and cultural activities already underway in Education City.
The 2013 Workshop sought ways to deepen the network of collaboration among our Workshop Alumni as well as invigorate our core program with new participants and themes. In 2013, we focused a new attention on comparative law as a constituent part of global policy and legal practice, on the potential to renew the Arab tradition of law and governance, and on the modern significance of the Islamic legal tradition. We continued our effort to stimulate new thinking about the legal foundations of global monetary affairs, economic development policy, global political economy and the struggle for social, political and economic justice. At the 2013 Workshop, we inaugurated a new program for Young Policy Professionals (YPP). The program was designed for young policy professionals from Qatar and the surrounding region who are not currently academics or scholars, but are promising professionals from the public or private sector with an interest in sharing their ideas with global peers. In addition to participating in the Workshop Stream lectures and discussions, participants in the YPP program had the opportunity to explore policy and governance processes and challenges with select Workshop faculty during afternoon discussion groups.
The IGLP is particularly grateful to our Workshop and Leading Sponsor the Qatar Foundation, who continue to show their faith in our efforts to develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance as well as to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers. The Qatar Foundation has generously agreed to be the Leading Sponsor of the January Workshop, and will host the Program for a period of five years. Their collaboration with the IGLP Workshop initiative is part of their broader effort to strengthen law and governance education in Doha, across the region, and in the broader world. Harvard Law School is proud to join with them in this effort.
The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School is a collaborative faculty effort to nurture innovative approaches to global policy in the face of a legal and institutional architecture manifestly ill-equipped to address our most urgent global challenges. We aim to provide a platform at Harvard for new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements, with particular emphasis on ideas and issues of importance to the global South. We are particularly grateful to Santander Universities and Sovereign Bank, and to our other Sponsors the Real Colegio Complutense, Visa Inc., and J&A Garrigues, S.L.P., who continue to show their faith in our efforts to provide a focal point for European, international and comparative law, and economic development study at Harvard Law School.
