Winter School on the Global South

The Winter School on the Global South is an intensive course to graduate students and early career scholars to critically reflect on the concept of “Global South” and to discuss what it means in theory and practice. It will be hosted by the Faculty of Economics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) with the participation of the Centre of Latin American Studies at the University of Cambridge. The Winter School on the Global South will take place from 02-06 September 2019.

Focus

The term Global South is not a unified or homogeneous concept. It can have a geographical meaning, referring to countries that are located in Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Middle East. It can have a non-State centric meaning, referring to the marginalised people within countries, being them in the geographic North or South. For some it is used almost interchangeably with Periphery, Third World, Rising Powers, Developing Countries, Non-Aligned Movement or Non-Western Countries. For others, nothing could be farther from the truth. So, what is the Global South? What is its applicability and analytical value?

Core Themes

  1. Global South: Concept, Theory & Practice
  2. Global (South?) Economic Governance
  3. Integration of the South into the World Economy
  4. Environment and Climate Change: A Southern Perspective
  5. Urban Transformations in the South

Who Should Apply?

The Winter School is intended for graduate students and early career scholars interested in discussing the Global South from a multidisciplinary perspective.

The deadline for application is 22 April 2019.

Participants will be selected to the Winter School on the Global South based on the following criteria:

  • Compatibility of the core themes of the Winter School with their research interests;
  • Value of the Winter School for their ongoing research and career development;
  • Enthusiasm about the Global South agenda;
  • English language proficiency.

Participants will be notified of acceptance in May.
