ISSC WORLD SOCIAL SCIENCE FELLOWS SEMINAR – Call for Support
From 29 July to 2 August 2014, the Academy’s International Advisory Group is hosting the third in the International Social Science Council’s (ISSC) Programme of World Social Science Fellows Seminars in London, in partnership with the LSE’s Centre for International Studies. Venues are being provided by the British Council and the London School of Economics.
The overall aims of the programme of seminars are to create the next generation of social science leaders, by focusing on global challenges and priorities with particular relevance to developing countries.
At the London Seminar, the 20 Fellows from across the world will have the opportunity to work together with other participants and with leading international specialists, policy makers, practitioners and publishers to explore different approaches to inter- and transdisciplinary research, their methodologies, the gaps and problematic of emerging themes concerned with ‘Global Social Governance: developing international social science research and impacting the policy process’.
The Academy’s Fellows and Learned Societies are invited to support the Seminar by contributing their expertise both during the event and, subsequently, in promoting the worldwide networking activities that are being planned.
