Sustainable Urbanization — Transformations to Sustainability in Urban Contexts

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: World Social Science Fellows (Deadline 30 June 2014)

2-8 November 2014 | Taipei

This ISSC seminar is organized in collaboration with IRDR-ICoE, Academia Sinica and National Taipei University, in partnership with CROP and IHDP.

Urban areas have been recognized as key elements for the future of global societies, and the locus of major social and environmental transformations.

We have a solid but fragmented basis for understanding the drivers of social transformations to sustainability and the social-environmental interactions at stake in urban areas. In order to address these complex dynamics, we need to rearticulate the various disciplinary contributions into interdisciplinary perspectives, spanning across the social, economic, political, cultural, physical and environmental dimensions of transformations in urban contexts.

New cross-cutting priorities that should lead future research agenda on transformations to sustainability in urban contexts needs to be formulated.

The organizers are looking for 20 talented, early career social scientists – to work on interdisciplinary perspectives at a seminar in Taipei, and to take them forward in their research and teaching activities after the seminar – and become World Social Science Fellows.

The call is open to early career social scientists, natural scientists, and humanities scholars working on topics related to urbanization and sustainability.

NEW DEADLINE for applications is 30 June 2014, Midnight GMT+1 (Paris Time) 2014.

Visit the ISSC webpage for further details and to download the call for applications document.
