Brown University’s International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI) convene participants from around the world to address pressing global issues through collaboration across academic, professional, and geographic boundaries. Applications are invited from early-career scholars and practitioners, especially those based at institutions in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, to participate in intensive, residential two-week institutes at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies.
The four institutes are convened by Brown University professors, and feature lectures, seminars, and workshops led by distinguished international guest faculty:
- Humanitarian Response and Post-Conflict Reconstruction
- Ethnicity, Conflict, and Inequality in Global Perspective
- Governance and Development in the Age of Globalization
- Population and Development: New Approaches to Enduring Global Problems
BIARI 2015 will be held at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies June 6-20, 2015.
The Program is aimed at applicants who are early in their professional careers. Practitioners normally have four to ten years’ experience in their professional field. Participants from an academic background are usually within seven years of having finished their PhD or professional terminal degree.
BIARI covers the full cost of tuition, meals, and university housing for the duration of the program, and air travel in cases of need.
