CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security Summer Academy
UNU-EHS and the Munich Re Foundation are happy to announce the sixth annual Summer Academy on Social Vulnerability with the topic "Climate Change and Fragile States: Rethinking Adaptation". Qualified Ph.D, LLM and SJD students who have an interdisciplinary focus and are working on research or dissertations related to humanitarian and human rights law, migration studies, economics and labor migration, environmental studies, natural disasters, human security and political sciences are invited to apply for the 2011 Summer Academy.
Most participants are expected to be graduate or post-graduate students. PhD students would be ideally in their second or third year of research. However, a few places will be reserved for practitioners who wish to take a step back from their operational work to engage with young researchers on this strategic issue.
Deadline: January 15, 2011
