Aim: This workshop enables current doctoral students to showcase the cutting-edge research being undertaken on minority rights across the UK and beyond. Students will be allocated to panels of presentations and a discussant will be allocated to provide formal feedback.
This event follows on from our first workshop of this seminar series held in March 2013, where we debated the current research directions on minority rights protection with a range of participants, including academic, civil society organisations, PhD and other research students.
Participants: Mphil, MRes and PhD students; academics (as discussants)
Presenters: To apply, please send a title and abstract (up to 350 words) of your paper to Tawhida Ahmed at firstname.lastname@example.org
Discussants: Please register your interest and availability by replying to Tawhida Ahmed at email@example.com
Presenters and participants will be required to provide a brief overview of their affiliation and research interests for circulation at the workshop by 31 May 2013.
Expected result: The idea of this workshop is to debate the significant research which is being undertaken by our doctoral students. It also aims to serve as a networking opportunity between junior and senior scholars in the field.
