Programme EXEMPLE (2010/02) – Launch of Global South Scholar-In-Residence Programme (by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies IHEID): 

  • The Institute is pleased to announce the creation of a Global South Scholar-in-Residence programme. As part of this programme, academics from Africa, Asia and Latin America will be invited to the Institute for a period of one semester.
  • Candidates are invited to apply to the programme. Successful applicants will be able to take advantage of their period in residence to update their teaching curricula, participate in teaching courses, further their research projects and contribute to enriching the intellectual life of the Institute.
  • Priority will be given to university teachers – with a preference for women and junior academics – who will seek to apply the benefits of their stay at the Institute upon returning to their own institutions.
  • Thanks to the generous support of a Swiss foundation that wishes to remain anonymous, the Institute will welcome three participants each semester who will spend between three and five months at the Institute.


Academics participating in this programme will be able to take advantage of their stay at the Institute:

  • To update and strengthen the curriculum of their course through close contact with colleagues working in the same discipline or area of expertise;
  • To further a personal research project by taking advantage of the plethora of expertise available in the Institute’s research centres and programmes, as well as the library’s resources, one of the most important European repositories in the field;
  • To participate in teaching courses (depending on the needs of the study plan, they may be called upon to teach a course for the entire semester);
  • Interact with the Institute’s students and faculty, as well as with international, public and private-sector actors from the Geneva area.


Academics will benefit from the following advantages:

  • The Institute will cover the costs of travel and visas for participants as well accommodation costs;
  • It will offer a monthly stipend to compensate for the loss of income in the institution of origin and to cover subsistence costs in Geneva;
  • Participants will be provided with a work space, and access to the Institute’s library and IT facilities.

Conditions for applications: … (full text).
