The Levan Institute is partnering with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict to offer a workshop at the University of Oxford. Areas of study will include human rights in and after conflict, humanitarian action, conflict trends, human rights law, and peacemaking with a focus on recent armed conflicts. The module will be a healthy mix of seminars, working groups, and student presentations. Students will meet twice before Spring Break with Levan director Dr. Lyn Boyd-Judson to discuss assigned readings and research plans. Boyd-Judson will travel with the students as a member of the workshop teaching team. The module will be led by Dr. Hugo Slim of the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law, and Armed Conflict. Other research fellows at the ELAC will lead seminars and working groups in their research areas.
Cost of the week long workshop is $1600 inclusive of housing and two meals per day. Airfare is not included. Some financial aid may be available. Limited to 10 USC students.
Write a cover letter to Dr. Lyn Boyd-Judson (firstname.lastname@example.org) describing a research interest that would benefit from the Oxford Spring Break workshop. Attach a one-page resume and STARS report. Interview of finalists required.
