We have organised weekly presentations by invited guests on subjects of interest to the students, followed by a colloquium. The guest's presentations and colloquia will deal with issues of practical significance for students' research plans, such as how to carry out socially responsible, ethically sound and methodologically robust social science research or how to incorporate a gender perspective into their work. Guests will be asked to reflect about their own personal work so as to provide clear guidance about the dilemmas they faced and the decisions they made during their research.
