Attend this workshop to
♦ Present your research in a small, focused setting, with intensive discussion and feedback from faculty and other participants:
– first within a small group, with faculty guidance
– after revising, formally to the entire workshop.
Ten full-time faculty will provide intensive mentoring.

♦ Hear the faculty discuss their research and strategies to formulate questions, develop analysis, and communicate results effectively.

♦ Network closely with faculty and other young scholars who have an enduring interest in institutional analysis. After the daily sessions, enjoy informal conversations during delicious dinners. There will be a special event and a gala dinner. Upon graduation, become part of a scholarly network with alumni from 75 countries.

The pace is intense and rewarding. Participants must attend all sessions and give as well as receive feedback.
