The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung will award two Ph.D. scholarships on the subject of Global Social Rights (GSR) starting 1 April 2018 for a duration of two years (with scope for two 6-month extensions) as part of the cooperative doctoral research group on Social Human Rights at the Universities of Kassel and Fulda. Developing a discourse on Global Social Rights and implementing social and democratic human rights around the world is a priority of the work carried out by the Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation, the international division of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.
