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.

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.
While in residence in Doha, participants review current scholarly developments, reconsider canonical texts and network with colleagues from across the world. 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.

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.
