The Regional Center for Social Science and Sustainable Development and the Mekong Land Research Forum will run a week-long intensive summer school on land research in the Mekong Region. The purpose of the summer school is to equip early-career academic and advocacy-oriented researchers with key concepts, access to existing research outputs, and knowledge of current land issues across the region in order to strengthen individual and networked research that is geared towards secure access to land amongst the region’s rural and urban poor.

3-4 participants from each of the six Mekong countries will be accepted into the program. The Mekong Region Land Governance program will provide travel and accommodation support to participants from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam and will support the running costs of the program. Participants from Thailand and Yunnan/Guangxi in China will need to fund their own travel and accommodation costs, but all tuition and meal costs will be provided without charge.

Deadline: 31 May 2017
