The IGLP Workshop | Doha, Qatar

Now Accepting Participant Applications for the 2015 IGLP Workshop (January 2-11, 2015)!

At the 2015 Workshop (January 2-11) we will continue to seek ways to deepen the network of collaboration among our Workshop alumni as well as continue to strengthen and renew our core program with new themes and new participants. Our aim is to build on the momentum of our first five Workshops as we strive to develop the premier site for networked innovation in the fields of global governance and economic policy among young scholars and policymakers from across the world. The full program for the 2015 IGLP Workshop, including Workshop Streams, will be announced soon.

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. 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.

As part of our effort to continue to strengthen our network, the IGLP launched the Docent Program in 2012, which we designed specifically for IGLP Alumni. IGLP Docents assist one or more Core Faculty with the organization of a Workshop Stream or convene a Writing Workshop and/or Stream Section. Each year our current Docents are also invited to participate in the IGLP’s intensive residential June programming held at Harvard Law School.

What is The Workshop?

Hosted by Hamad bin Khalifa University, a member of the Qatar Foundation, The Workshop brings over 100 doctoral, post-doctoral scholars, and junior faculty together in Doha, Qatar with a core group of senior IGLP faculty from around the world for a unique series of lectures and intensive interdisciplinary debates.

Intensive writing workshops offer participants the opportunity to receive valuable feedback on their own research from their peers and more senior colleagues in small group settings.

Qatar offers 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 Workshop seeks ways to deepen the network of collaboration among our Workshop Alumni as well as invigorate our core program with new participants and themes. In recent years, we have focused 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.

Each year we also continue 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.

In 2013, we inaugurated the “Young Policy Professionals (YPP)” program. This program is designed for young policy professionals from Qatar and the surrounding region who are currently neither academics nor scholars, but show 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 have the opportunity to explore policy and governance processes and challenges with select workshop faculty during afternoon discussion groups.

How Much Does it Cost to Attend the Workshop?

The Institute for Global Law and Policy is committed to keeping the Workshop as cost-free as possible for admitted applicants, including travel, meals and lodging.

Workshop Sponsor

The IGLP is deeply grateful to our local partners at Hamad bin Khalifa University, a member of the Qatar Foundation, for hosting the Workshop and continuing 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. 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.

In 2014, the Workshop will also be co-sponsored with the Melbourne Law School in Australia, the Sciences Po Law School in Paris and the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

About the IGLP

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 santander_small_web_versionthe 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 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.
