ISSCGlobal Social Governance: Developing international social science research and impacting the policy process

From 29 July to 2 August 2014, the Academy’s International Advisory Group hosted the third in the International Social Science Council’s (ISSC) Programme of World Social Science Fellows Seminars on the theme of Global Social Governance. In five intensive days, the Fellows were given the opportunity to chair, lead and report on conversations and panel discussions with experts on global social governance and the policy process, while collaboratively planning themed sections of journals, special issues, edited book and project proposals. They received valuable advice on international networking, project funding and dissemination from experienced researchers and organisers, and returned to their home institutions and regions ready to develop and consolidate their careers as international research leaders.

The event was partly supported by the SPA and a full report is available here.
