*Second edition of the PhD Programme in Global Studies at Urbino University*

At a time when European integration and disintegration, and challenges to
globalisation dominate current policy concerns, the University of Urbino
offers an interdisciplinary Ph.D. Programme in Global Studies, at a
cross-roads of Economics, Business, Political Science, Sociology and Law.

The programme addresses two thematic areas in alternate years:

-        in the 2018-2019 edition: *Global Society, Cross-border Mobility
and Law*

-        in the 2019-2020 edition: *International Economic Policy, Business
and Governance *(Previous edition: 2017/18)

The upcoming 2018-2019 edition focuses on cross-border movements of
capital, knowledge, labour and people, mainly from institutional, legal and
sociological perspectives. A specific attention will be given to:

   - migrations, cross-border mobility and related policies;
   - human rights, welfare policies and cultures in a global context;
   - international relations, aid policies and diplomacy.

The Ph.D. Programme is developed over three years (from Fall 2018 until
Fall 2021) and will be organised as follows:

• a first year of courses and exams in Urbino;

• a second year of international research and training, mainly spent in
international institutions associated to the Programme;

• a third year of research activity for completing the Ph.D. thesis.

*English *will be the working language of the Ph.D. Programme.

*Nine positions* are offered in the 2018-2019 Ph.D. Programme, including *seven
positions with scholarships* covering fees and an annual tax-free stipend
at standard Italian rates (EUR 15,300 per year; the amount is increased by
50% for training periods outside Italy).

*The Faculty* of the Ph.D. Programme draws from the staff of the University
of Urbino and from a number of outstanding international institutions.

Please visit our *website* to have more
detailed information on this year’s edition of the Programme and Faculty,
as well as an anticipation of the contents of next year’s edition (which
