PhD seminar in Venice: 28-29-20 April 2009

tl_files/EIUC MEDIA/News Files/ann.gifThe dates of the PHD seminar are 28-29-30 April 2009 and the topic is ‘Human Rights and Business in Times of Global Financial Crisis’.

The main facilitators will

- Prof. Peter Rosenblum (Columbia University),
- Dr. Radu Mares (University of Lund),
- Prof. Fabrizio Marrella (EIUC).

During these seminars the teachers will offer presentations based on their current research interests. PHD students will present their own research projects and receive feedback from the group. It has been found that in addition to the benefit reaped from attending high level lectures offered by the EIUC visiting professors, the participants also benefited greatly from their interaction with one another and came away with a reinforced sense of feeling connected to young researchers from other parts of Europe working on related topics. Our aim is to achieve a similar effect during the upcoming seminar.
