GLOBE 2019 Winter School in International Relations – Switzerland

GLOBE Winter School in International Relations — 24 February – 28 February 2020 — Leysin, Switzerland

Located in a historic resort of the Swiss Alps, the GLOBE Winter School in International Relations provides a unique environment for PhD students intending to situate themselves within the IR discipline. GLOBE PhD school builds up from the idea to create innovative PhD network workshops with colleagues from Groningen, Lausanne, Oslo, and Erfurt (GLOBE). Our focus on recent epistemological advances in non-positivist scholarship delivers expertise through tailor-made roundtables, PhD presentations, walk & talk sessions, and collective readings.

This year, the overall theme is on “Risk, crises and uncertain futures”. Tailor-made roundtables are organized so as to explore and tackle fundamental questions related to new objects of enquiry likely to link issues of knowledge, power, and time in domains as diverse as the environment, security, finance, or development. This is a unique opportunity for PhD students and early post-doc researchers to engage with various facets of the epistemological foundations of international relations in more than ever uncertain times. While the roundtables are organized around this theme with readings suggested by speakers, the breakout sessions of PhD/post-doc presentations are conceived as an open space to share ideas and receive feedback on projects that don’t need to match these themes.
