Eighth South-South Institute on “Inequality and Social Justice: Perspectives from the Global South”

The call for applications is open for participation in the Eighth South-South Institute on “Inequality and Social Justice: Perspectives from the Global South”.

The Institute will be held in Durban, South Africa, from September 11 to 18, 2015. And it is organised by the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO), the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the International Development Economic Associates (IDEAS).

The underlying objective of the South-South Institute is to offer advanced research training opportunities to participants working on various key issues relevant to clacsothe South. It seeks to impart theoretical and methodological perspectives that might be appropriate for gaining a full understanding of the specific situation of the countries and peoples located outside the core of the international system such as it is presently structured. All of this is premised on the glaring inadequacy of much of the theories and methodologies developed in the North and crystallised in the mainstream social sciences, to provide the required instruments for a sound understanding of the problems confronting the countries of the South. The institute hopes to mobilise young scholars from across Africa, Asia and Latin America to reflect on the alternatives that are available for overcoming the challenges facing the countries of the South. It is also expected that participants will become acquainted with the local intellectual environment in the regions where different sessions of the institutes are hosted, and strengthen their comparative research capacities. In sum, the institutes are structured to serve as a unique forum for enhancing a deeper understanding among a younger generation of Southern scholars of the history, politics, economy and culture of the countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America, and offer an opportunity to participants to develop long-lasting collaborative relationships with their counterparts from other Southern countries.

The working language of Institute is English, the courses are led by a faculty of tri-continental Southern scholars, and the costs of participation are covered by the Institute.

Deadline for applications is April 15, 2015.
