Participants will have the opportunity to interact with some of the leading thinkers in this area and a global group of other talented early career social scientists.

The seminar will take place from 9-13 September 2015 in Durban, viagra South Africa.


Candidates from across all world regions who are deeply familiar with their own local/regional contexts to address the challenge posed by Goal 11 are invited to apply.
