2022 Doctoral and Post-doctoral School on Comparative Sustainable Regional Integration

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the resulting 2030 Agenda were presented as a new phase of development cooperation which recognized that world regions are interlinked and sustainable development can only be achieved when it benefits everyone (“no person left behind”). This ambitious vision, however, has been challenged by the coronavirus pandemic which has created a global “crisis of interlinked crises.” In some cases, these overlapping crises have challenged regional cooperation as protectionist policies emerged in many parts of the world. In others, they have emphasised renewed relevance of regional governance through response strategies characterized by solidarity. This doctoral and post-doctoral school addressed comparative sustainable regional integration through a variety of conceptual and methodological classes specifically catering to a better understanding of how to analyse sustainable regional integration through comparative research.

This year’s school will take place virtually from 05 September to 16 September 2022.
