The Global Horizons Residential Fellowship Programme, offered by the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS), is open to scholars from all nations who are conducting research in the area of global governance. Its primary aim is to promote interdisciplinary research on large-scale global governance issues, with a focus on contemporary aspects of globalization.
The programme seeks to attract research fellows who are interested in collaborating across faculty lines, and revolves around three thematic areas: Global Knowledge Cultures and Regimes, Global Political Predicaments, and Global Futures. The programme has a future-oriented perspective and aims to contribute to the advancement of knowledge on contemporary forms of governance and their implications. While the programme provides fellows with the opportunity to focus on their own research interests, without the obligations of teaching and administration, they are expected to participate actively in the Collegium's scholarly community and attend seminars and academic events outside their areas of expertise.
