Scholarships available for our 2021 winter academies

Published 17 December 2020

Ten scholarships are available to candidates based in low or lower-middle income countries to attend the Asser Institute’s online winter academies in January and February 2021.

In 2021, the Asser Institute will be hosting two winter academies. The first dedicated to the field of business and human rights and the second to the intersection between AI and international law. In this context, we invite interested candidates resident of low or lower-middle income countries (based on the World Bank’s classification) to apply for scholarships covering the tuition fees of the winter academies.

Winter academy on ‘Due diligence as master key to responsible business conduct’ from 25 to 29 January 2021
In 2021, we will host the fourth edition of our Doing Business Right winter academy. This year’s focus will be on due diligence as a key process aimed at achieving responsible business conduct. The winter academy will discuss the theoretical underpinnings of the turn to due diligence in the business and human rights field and provide our participants with a comprehensive understanding of its practical operation through specific case studies conducted by experienced practitioners.
