JUMP – to The Hague

Support is available for young scholars from the Global South who wish to attend the EADI/ISS General Conference in the Netherlands next year. Applications for mentoring grants must be filed soon.

In connection with the EADI/ISS General Conference 2020Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice”, to be held from 29 June to 2 July 2020 at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in the Hague, PhD and early career researchers from the Global South are invited to apply for the JUMP Journal Mentoring Programme. EADI is the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes.

JUMP offers the opportunity to work closely with an experienced scholar from the same field of interest, in order to prepare a paper for submission to the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) or any other scientific journal. A one-day writing workshop at the conference will kick off the programme. Conference fees, travel and accommodation expenses of the mentees are covered by the programme. The call is open until 20 January 2020.

Ideally, JUMP applicants have submitted an abstract to either one of the conference panels (abstract submission deadline is 6 January 2020), or the 17th ISS Development Dialogue being held alongside the conference. The Development Dialogue is an annual ISS conference, organised by and for PhD researchers and young scholars in development studies. The related call for abstracts is still open until 15 January. Applications independent from these two events are welcome too.
