BSRS 2008: Global Poverty


Main content

The first edition of the Bergen Summer Research School is dedicated to the theme of Global Poverty. We are committed to address poverty as a global challenge that concerns both, advanced and less developed economies, requiring disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and problem-oriented research-based education.

The 2008 program offer courses and activities based on socio-economic, legal, political, psychological, humanistic and philosophical, environmental, and sector issues (health and education) that deal with, relate to, or have consequences for global poverty, understood as a question for advanced as well as developing and less developed economies. Global poverty will be a recurring theme in all the other editions; interacting with, and cross-fertilizing thinking on the other identified global challenges: global environmental change, global health, and norms, values, language and culture.
