General information

Located in a historical resort of the Swiss Alps, the GLOBE winter school in International Relations provides a unique environment for PhD students intending to situate themselves within the IR discipline. GLOBE PhD school builds up from the idea to create innovative PhD network workshops with colleagues from Groningen, Lausanne, Oslo, and Erfurt (GLOBE). Our focus on recent epistemological advances in non-positivist scholarship delivers expertise through tailor-made roundtables, PhD presentations, walk & talk sessions and collective readings.


The winter school takes place in the Villa La Joux, in Leysin, in the Swiss Alps. The Chalet is situated within walking distance from the last train stop called “Gare du Grand Hotel”, of the Aigle-Leysin train.
