As part of its internationalisation activities portfolio, the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science is organising a series of seminars focussing on the role of social science research in responding to global challenges.
We are inviting four practitioners, internationally recognised for their contribution towards addressing various global challenges, to reflect on how social science research should inform our responses to the fundamental challenges facing individuals and communities across the world.
Our speakers will reflect on some of the research projects which they have been directly involved in, or which they relied upon in their professional lives, to bring critical insights into some of the most challenging social issues, such as gender-based violence, human trafficking, combating infectious diseases, and forced migration. They will also provide some practical tips on networking, engaging with policymakers and external (to academia) audiences, and will answer a few questions from the audience.
Who can attend?
This series is open to all researchers registered at Scottish institutions and alumni. The sessions will take place online and will be co-hosted with the Centre for Migration and Mobilities Research at Edinburgh Napier University.
