The Visiting Scholars Programme is intended to give qualified scholars an opportunity to undertake research on topics related to development and/or global economic issues, to participate in UNU-WIDER activities, and to contribute to UNU-WIDER publications. It is also designed to aid the dissemination of UNU-WIDER research and to contribute to the UNU-WIDER outreach programme.

The PhD Research Internship Programme aims to provide PhD (doctoral degree) students registered at a university and similar research institutions the opportunity to (1) utilise the resources and facilities available at UNU-WIDER for their PhD thesis research; (2) produce papers suitable for publication in the Research Paper series and elsewhere; (3) to work jointly with UNU-WIDER researchers in areas of mutual interest.

Applications must be received by post (not email) by the closing date: 30 September 2008. Further details about the programmes and the application process are available at
