The Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School Founded in 2009, the Institute is a collaborative faculty effort to nurture innovative approaches to global policy. We focus on young scholars and policy makers who bring new ideas and perspectives to comparative and international legal research and policy. The IGLP aims to facilitate the emergence of a creative dialogue among young experts from around the world, strengthening our global capacity for innovation and cooperative research. Scholars associated with the Institute are working to understand and map the levers of political, economic and legal authority in the world today. We understand far too little about the dense network of arrangements through which injustice has become sustainable and immune from effective challenge. At the IGLP, we are convinced that global poverty, conflict and inequality are not only unfortunate problems to be addressed. They are legal and institutional regimes, reproduced by the work of many around the world, often with the best intentions. We have carefully evaluated the intellectual, pedagogic and social impact of the Institute and this report presents our accomplishments since 2009, our most recent activities in 2015-2016, and our vision for the next phase of our work. Over the past year, we have convened and trained scores of young scholars from across the world while hosting and supporting the research of our Residential Fellows and Visiting Researchers. In January, we launched our inaugural African Regional Workshop with our friends at the University of Cape Town Faculty of Law in South Africa. In June, we held our annual Colloquium at Harvard Law School for over 60 junior IGLP faculty. In July, we convened our yearly Global Workshop for over 120 young scholars and faculty in collaboration with Complutense University at the Santander campus in Madrid, Spain. I hope that you will enjoy this review of our activities. I am proud of the track record of excellence and innovation we have established in research and capacity building for university education in law and policy worldwide. From the start, I have been privileged to be advised by the many friends and colleagues who have served on our Advisory Councils. Everyone who works with the Institute is grateful to the Sponsors and Friends who make our work together possible. I hope to hear from you â€“ and see you at the Institute in the coming years!
David Kennedy Faculty Director and Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law Harvard Law School
“The IGLP has opened tremendous opportunities. We’re excited to realize the immense promise of the unique network and institutional platform we have established.”
Recognizing a Global Challenge The Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School was founded during the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 to respond to key challenges identified by the faculty. The intellectual challenge. At the height of the 2008 crisis, it became clear that too few were thinking in a truly global fashion about the political economy of the world. Although the world economy is saturated with legal rules and institutions, in every society law and policy are primarily taught and imagined in national terms. Attention to the intersections of law and policy, economics and politics, market expansion and inequality remains rare. No one was putting all the pieces together. At the same time, a focus on the North Atlantic left other voices and viewpoints outside the global conversation precisely as emerging markets and newly rising powers became ever more important for business and policy. A global perspective was missing. The human challenge. Improved governance and a stronger rule of law require policy professionals in public and private life to be more effectively trained. Across the world, global players find it difficult to identify skilled local interlocutors. University educators remain ill-equipped to prepare young lawyers and policy professionals to function globally. A new generation of global leaders would require a new generation of university educators who are themselves engaged in global discussion of the most urgent issues of law and policy. As law and policy education has expanded in the worldâ€™s emerging markets, the binding constraint is personnel: young scholars, even when trained in the West, face financial and intellectual barriers to entry as they begin careers as university educators. The exciting global conversation they encountered in graduate study in Europe or the United States too often slips beyond their reach as they return to train the leaders of tomorrow at home. Their opportunities for international peer-to-peer learning and their access to global mentors are meager, while university educators in the North find it difficult to hear their perspectives.
The Institute within Harvard University It is hard to imagine more suitable institutional home for a global undertaking to strengthen university education in law and policy. With an extensive global reputation, unrivaled convening power and an expansive international network of alumni and faculty, Harvard is uniquely positioned to address the research and pedagogic challenges of globalization. Established in 1636, Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States. It remains a robust center of intellectual innovation and a powerful force in shaping university education worldwide. Our more than 325,000 living alumni form a remarkable resource for global projects of institutional innovation. Harvard Law School sets the global standard for the education of lawyers, law professors, policy professionals, business and political leaders. Our J.D., LL.M. and S.J.D. alumni hold leadership positions in government, business and higher education across the world. The law schoolâ€™s large and diverse global faculty is renowned for its interdisciplinary and international engagements as well as for its links to the worlds of policy and corporate leadership. The Institute draws on the full resources of Harvard University community and serves as a portal to the wider academic community for our many collaborating partners and friends. Together, we have built a powerful platform to transform education in law and policy and generate innovative solutions to this centuryâ€™s most pressing issues of global regulation and policy. Our community of innovative scholars is anchored at Harvard, linked to a unique global network, and dedicated to strengthening university education and research worldwide through careful mentoring and peer-to-peer networking.
The IGLP Vision
The IGLP mandate was daunting: encourage innovative global thinking; identify and empower new voices in the global conversation; stimulate research that might help transform a legal and institutional architecture manifestly ill-equipped to address the world’s most urgent challenges; build capacity in law and policy education across the global South. But how? We began by engaging our global Advisory Councils to develop an answer. Composed of leading faculty, policymakers and leaders from around the world, they ensured that our approach would be viable and well-focused. The result was a unique vision reflecting four key commitments which have anchored our program and research initiatives.
Encourage New Thinking through Research Collaboration No one faculty has the global perspective to meet the challenges we had identified. Scholars from every continent and many disciplines would need to be engaged. We convened leading scholars from universities across the world for intense interdisciplinary discussion and reciprocal training. Human rights scholars would need to learn about the economy. Scholars of trade policy would need to learn about development and the institutional arrangements fostering or alleviating inequality. Everyone would need to understand the significance of finance and the functions of global currency. The best ideas would come from young scholars and policy professionals, but only if they could engage one another and find the mentoring necessary to join the global conversation. Our programs would be designed to identify, nurture and empower the most promising young scholars of global law, economic policy and social justice. Innovation would come from the collaborative research which would result from sustained global conversations.
Strengthen Young Scholars and Faculty through Peer-to-Peer Engagement and Mentoring We knew we did not have the answers. We had questions. And we could make connections. Harvard’s unique global convening power enabled us to connect bright young scholars to their global peers through our diverse network of academics, policy makers, and government officials. We were not training them: Harvard has degree programs for that purpose. The Institute focuses on those who have already been trained, who are already innovating, seeking solutions in their own way and in their own societies. Our value added is to enable global peer-to-peer learning by the most promising young thinkers with intensive support and mentoring from our junior and senior faculty drawn from leading faculties around the world. Their voices inform one another’s research – and our own. The challenge is to engage and amplify their voices, strengthen their capacity to approach the global situation in an integrated way through their collaboration. We encourage them to become – and train others to be – key interlocutors in global conversations about law and economic policy. 8
Model Institutional Reform and Policy Engagement Research collaboration must be learned: there is no road map for interdisciplinary and cross-border engagement. Scholars young and old need to learn how to engage and to trust that new perspectives will be enriching. There is no recipe for “globalizing” pedagogy in law and policy. In every country, university instruction in law is frustratingly conventional in format. Young professors who want to train students for work in a global economy lack models and materials. Academics found it difficult to engage effectively with policy professionals – and vice versa. It was not enough to put people together: we would need to work closely with them to develop institutional models and working formats for collaborative learning and global teaching. We placed senior and junior faculty from different national traditions and disciplinary perspectives in teams, encouraging them to develop and test curricular materials to “globalize” their pedagogy. In each of our programs, we would focus on the “how” as much as the what: how to communicate effectively with policymakers; how to engage one another’s work; how to bring alternative perspectives together in research. We developed institutional models for research and policy dialog on key global issues: financial inclusion, economic development, social policy and poverty.
Empower One Another to Engage the World Good ideas must be heard to change the world. From the start, we were clear that what happened at IGLP should not stay at IGLP. Our scholars would need to engage their many worlds and train others to become effective participants in global dialog. To do so, they would need to become one another’s audience and professional network, strengthening one another’s voices on the global stage. We aim to project the IGLP/Harvard brand as a mark of global distinction and innovation. IGLP alumni and faculty are proud of their affiliation. They acknowledge it in their professional publications and credentials and draw on the network when recruiting talent. Through grants programs and social media, we have encouraged “IGLPers” to continue their collaboration. We have partnered with their home universities to spawn and co-sponsor follow-on events. Our seminars, policy roundtables and conferences, both at Harvard and across the globe, aim to strengthen and present work developed by our alumni and faculty. Scholars have always played a vital role in shaping debate, identifying trends and assisting politicians and policy makers to understand the choices they face. IGLP actively encourages links between the academic and policy worlds, training our young scholars to engage outside the academy. We have brought teams of IGLP scholars on research missions to countries such as Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Thailand, Russia and China to engage policymakers, business leaders and local scholars to foster and enhance transnational dialog. New ideas must be published and taught to shape policy. Through writing workshops, close mentoring, intensive proseminars and grant programs, we encourage collaborative research to lead to publication. In all of our programming, we aim to bring the best new thinking about global law and policy to the global community for discussion and debate.
Together, these four commitments guide our work at the Institute. The result is a unique platform for innovative research and a global network of scholars and policy professionals linked by their experience of peer-to-peer mentoring and research collaboration. We have helped pave the way for innovative ideas and alternative approaches to global issues of law, economic policy, and social justice to take root in this new century.
Turning Our Vision into Program
Our vision required institutional form. Over the last seven years, we have developed an innovative portfolio of model programs designed as catalysts for transformative, globally oriented learning. Across each annual cycle of programs, we aim to bring new participants to our network conversations, deepen research and teaching collaboration among our alumni and faculty, and encourage engagement with global debates on law and policy.
IGLP: The Workshop Our most important and innovative program remains the IGLP Workshop, initiated in 2010. The Workshop has become a world-renowned, global center for faculty development in the fields of law and policy, representing years of careful testing and evaluation by our core faculty. It aims to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers and introducing them to cutting edge research across a variety of disciplines. We were proud to convene our most recent Workshop with our partners at Complutense University on the Santander campus at Boadilla del Monte in July 2016. As an extension of The Workshop, we have inaugurated smaller, regionally focused workshops in Latin America and Africa in partnership with the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, the University of São Paulo and the University of Cape Town. We will convene an Asian Regional Workshop in collaboration with the Thailand Institute of Justice in Bangkok in January 2017. Each regional Workshop extends our global network, ensuring that participants and faculty deepen their regional understanding while remaining engaged with global peers. The true value of The Workshop is realized through the larger network and annual cycle of activities in which it is embedded. The Workshop provides a gateway for scholars to further explore the Institute’s Working Formats and delve deeper into the network’s resources.
IGLP: The Conference Held every other year at Harvard Law School, the Conference offers scholars from our broader network the opportunity to share their research with the wider community. At our recent Conference in June 2015, more than 425 papers were selected for presentation through a process of peer review. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for scholars connected to the Institute to return to Cambridge to present their research, to reconnect with peers from across the globe and to find new opportunities for collaborative research.
IGLP: The Colloquium We regularly convene an invitation-only Colloquium at Harvard for scholars who have contributed to our work as mentors and teachers. The Colloquium allows our core global team to strengthen their work through intensive discussion and engagement with leading scholars from other disciplines. Each Colloquium pursues a common theme across a range of research fields and showcases the work of economists, sociologists, anthropologists, policy professionals and specialists in the study of science and technology, whom we anticipate contributing to our common research.
IGLP: The Pro-Seminars Our Pro-Seminars are designed for small groups of scholars engaged in collaboration aimed towards publication and are typically convened by regular Harvard Law School or senior IGLP faculty. They bring together ten to fifteen scholars working on a common topic to advance their work.
Collaborative Research We support multi-year research projects led by affiliated faculty to foster innovation across our network. We also mount international research teams for onsite investigation and discussions with policy makers, often followed by a conference reflecting a first cut on the research findings. The IGLP Collaborative Research Grant Program provides modest funding to small groups of young scholars who are seeking to carry out substantive research on projects related to the core research mission of the IGLP. 11
Turning Our Vision into Program
Policy Roundtables We periodically sponsor Policy Roundtables to bring experts together from industry, the legal profession, government and academia for intensive discussion on topics of common interest in a relaxed off the record setting. We have held roundtables at Harvard and overseas on topics ranging from new approaches to regulation in developing economies to financial inclusion and new conceptions of international law.
Visiting Fellows, Researchers and Scholars Program The IGLP welcomes a number of Residential Fellows and Visiting Researchers and Scholars over the course of the year. The IGLP Fellowship Program establishes the core academic community for our work. In selecting and mentoring Fellows, we encourage the development of innovative thinking about international law, society and political economy by supporting original, provocative and challenging intellectual work that might not otherwise find support from institutional resources. We also welcome Visiting Researchers and Scholars who commit to undertaking their research at Harvard Law School for a minimum duration of 3 months.
Affiliate Programming The IGLP is not alone. We regularly sponsor conferences, workshops, lectures, and seminars in collaboration with our global partners and affiliates. We aim to provide an institutional catalyst for affiliated scholars seeking to organize spin-off initiatives in their home institutions.
The Global Network Our unique global network of scholars and policy makers serves as a force multiplier for our affiliated scholars and alumni and provides the foundation for all of our initiatives.
A Lean Administrative Model We are proud to have been able to mount more than 140 academic events on five continents, engaging more than 1,100 scholars and hosting more than 80 visiting scholars and fellows at Harvard with an extremely lean administrative framework. Our financial resources are devoted primarily to ensuring that the best young scholars are able to participate in our events regardless of their financial means. We encourage our faculty and network affiliates to contribute and leverage the resources of our institutional partners. Several universities have agreed to cover the costs of their own faculty and graduate students â€“ many others contribute on an ad hoc basis. We ask our affiliated faculty to contribute mentoring and curricular development largely without compensation.
Harvard Law School assesses no general administrative overhead on funding directed to the Institute for Global Law and Policy. All administrative costs are those directly related to IGLP activities. The Institute maintains a small administrative hub of skilled professional program managers and their administrative support.

Impact: The Human Story
People are the core of the IGLP’s response to the intellectual and pedagogic challenges of globalization. All of our programs aim to change people: improve their scholarship, broaden their research and teaching, expand their network and professional horizons.
“Until now, I thought IGLP would be an interesting and enriching experience – but now I know it is transformative!”
We are proud of our track record: participants and faculty alike praise the academic quality and innovative spirit of our programs. They attest to the impact their IGLP experiences have had on their lives. Numbers tell part of the story. The sheer volume of collaborative opportunities and mentoring we have provided over the last seven years is dramatic. Hundreds of new faces apply each year as word of mouth spreads the reputation of our activities. Alumni return to mentor, just as they have been mentored. The quality of our participants and programming is also a key indicator. We are now recognized as the leading platform for innovative faculty development and innovative research collaboration in the fields of global law and policy. Leading faculty from across the world mentor and teach in our programs uncompensated, recognizing the value of our work and the astonishing promise of our young scholars. Our young scholars are drawn from among the most talented voices in their generation and selected by a rigorous admissions process. The reactions of those who have participated give life to these indicators. We carefully assess each of our programs through discussion with contributing faculty, participant evaluations and feedback. Formal survey responses repeatedly confirm the high value participants place on their experiences at IGLP. Informal feedback is more powerful still. Both junior and senior scholars return repeatedly, expanding their participation across the range of our activities. The many collaborative groups which have sprung up following each IGLP Conference and Workshop attest to the value they place on one another and the larger network.
We seek to change the world by supporting innovative global thinking, including new voices in the global conversation, strengthening the legal, institutional, and intellectual infrastructure required to address the world’s most urgent challenges, and building capacity in law and policy education across the world. Our theory of social change is simple: •
I dentify the most promising young scholars and policy experts who share our ambition to think globally, innovate across disciplines and collaborate with colleagues world-wide.
trengthen these thinkers by placing them in conversation with one another, asking good questions, and S providing interdisciplinary resources and intensive mentoring opportunities from leading scholars selected from the world’s top universities.
ustain this collaboration and growth for junior and senior colleagues alike, encourage the collaborative S development and testing of innovative curricular materials and pedagogic formats for adoption worldwide.
Empower the IGLP network as a distinctive mark of excellence and a global culture of innovation; each of us a resource and audience for the other.
Impact: The Human Story
Scale: A Robust Cycle of Activity Sustaining a global network requires scale. To that end, we have developed the in-house capacity to mount complex international programs around the world in collaboration with our global faculty and institutional partners. Since 2009, the Institute has convened more than 1,000 unique scholarly sessions on five continents, bringing more than 1,100 senior and junior scholars into a sustained effort to understand and change the world. Together these scholars represent 89 countries and more than 300 universities. The demand for our programs continues to grow. The volume of one-on-one mentoring we have provided is particularly striking. Since 2009, our Workshops have provided more than 750 hours of peer-to-peer mentoring for participantsâ€™ research projects. Our global faculty have provided an additional 1,800 hours of one-on-one advice after reading the work of our young scholars. More than 180 faculty from over 80 universities have offered their time, reading draft works by younger colleagues before commenting and advising in small group settings. Many of these engagements have blossomed into long-term conversations. PARTICIPANTS

Quality Indicators: Innovation in Academic Excellence Activities on this scale can only be sustained where new and returning participants can be confident in their academic excellence. Leading faculty from the world’s top universities recognize the quality of our programs and of the conversations which result. The active engagement of our Advisory Councils illustrates the breadth of excellence upon which we are fortunate to draw. Our programs also attract young scholars of the highest caliber. Faculty have been enormously impressed by the quality of our Workshop participants, selected through a rigorous and competitive admissions process. The most important quality indicators are programmatic. The academic excellence of our programs is most evident in the unique opportunity they provide for interdisciplinary and cross-cultural engagement, skills development and continuing networked engagement.
Productive collaboration across disciplines and cultures Our record of cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary engagement is unique in the world. Through the IGLP, hundreds of young scholars have worked intensively outside their fields with colleagues from across parts of the globe. Sustaining global and interdisciplinary engagement is challenging. Graduate education and the early steps in an academic career can narrow one’s horizons. Scholars – young and old – must be willing to move outside their comfort zone to engage with colleagues of another generation, another continent, another academic discipline. We have continually been able to encourage colleagues to take these risks.
The “how” of academic life: professional skills There are few opportunities in academic life for systematic focus on the professional skills one must master: how to teach, how to mentor, how to organize your research for presentation to policymakers and the wider public. Senior scholars at IGLP routinely praise our skills focus and comment that this mentoring and support has been the most valuable of their careers. Working with senior and junior colleagues from diverse cultures, we have developed, tested and refined a best practice “IGLP Approach” for the routine activities of academic work: from chairing a panel or presenting a paper to writing a book or developing a new course. We are particularly proud of the multi-day “IGLP Talk” exercise which forces scholars to condense their research work into a three minute public response, sharpening their ability to engage forcefully with the world of policy and practice. This “IGLP approach” has been adopted by programs around the world.
Deepening the experience: quality through continuing engagement Quality programs spawn repetition and renewal: people come back, develop new paths for growth and ever deeper engagement. For young scholars, our programs are doorways to a lifelong habit of international collegial discussion, engagement and collaboration. They typically come to us as doctoral students and young faculty, carefully selected to join the Workshop, and continue their participation in the IGLP network through our other Working Formats or in other capacities. For example, over 70 of our participant alumni have gone on to become Junior Faculty in successive Workshops. The IGLP works throughout each year to find new pathways for global scholars to collaborate with peers through our entire program cycle. Our grants program has supported small teams who met one another at our Workshop and wish to continue their collaboration. Eighty-two individuals have come to Cambridge for extended research stays as visiting scholars and residential fellows. The network has been uniform in their enthusiasm for opportunities, both online and on campuses around the world, to maintain and nurture relationships they forged with colleagues at the Institute.
Sustaining Engagement: Collaborative Research In 2012, we inaugurated an IGLP Collaborative Research Program to support young scholars seeking to carry out substantive research on projects related to the core research mission of the IGLP. We have been pleased to award 13 grants that have supported the collaborative work of more than 50 young scholars. In 2013 and 2014 we awarded more than 30 individual and collaborative research grants to support research by IGLP alumni and faculty pursuing innovative scholarship and research projects to revitalize the Arab and Islamic traditions of law and governance, or explore issues of comparative law, global law, and policy in Qatar, the Middle East, and the North African Region. In 2013, we partnered with Visa Inc. to award 6 grants for research on financial inclusion and financial services in emerging markets.
Impact: The Human Story
The Uptake: “Has the IGLP changed your life?” We regularly survey those who participate in our programs both formally and informally. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Since the beginning, 98% of participants have reported that the IGLP has positively impacted their writing and research. Overall, 95% have a strong, positive impression of their IGLP peers and mentors; 93% say they have developed lasting, transnational relationships; and 97% of teaching faculty stated that their experience with the IGLP has positively impacted their students. Our most recent survey of participants at the June 2016 Colloquium revealed unanimous (100%) confirmation that the IGLP has: •
improved their ability to think critically and across disciplines
inspired them to pursue new ideas and projects
exposed them to new, global perspectives
provided a rare opportunity for support and intellectual engagement
allowed them to collaborate with colleagues from around the world
Participants have consistently been enthusiastic about the opportunity to meet and learn from one another, and grateful for the small group and informal settings in which that could occur. The Writing Workshops are always the most important and valued part of the experience. We aspire to change the way people understand the world and their work, opening their perspectives to new fields, linking them with new colleagues, and encouraging them to teach and write in new ways. To this end, it is encouraging that so many of our faculty and alumni continue to engage and apply what they have learned together in their home institutions. Many have credited us with opening new job opportunities, encouraging them to move their dissertation to publication as a book or begin a collaborative project with colleagues from the IGLP network.
To measure this impact, we must look beyond the numbers. We have received hundreds of informal and unsolicited written communications expressing gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the Workshop. The tenor of these is captured in the quotations we have placed throughout this report and in the following 8 stories of transformation from our alumni.
“IGLP is easily the most exciting intellectual space in the world.”
Impact: The Human Story
Nicolás Marcelo Perrone (Argentina) Lecturer, Durham University, United Kingdom For Nicolás, the influence of IGLP faculty and peers has been simply “inspiring.” Like many IGLPers, his first exposure to the IGLP was as a Workshop participant in 2011 while he was finishing his doctorate. The IGLP has continued to empower him through research and teaching opportunities, for example, serving as a mentor at the IGLP Workshops in Doha, Bogota and Cape Town. Nicol´as credits the IGLP with teaching him to present his ideas before diverse, global audiences in ways that translate across a spectrum of disciplines. He benefited from an IGLP research grant, allowing him to develop an ambitious comparative law project studying oil and natural gas agreements in Colombia and Qatar. Today, Nicolás views the IGLP as an ongoing resource for collaboration and engagement. When organizing his own conferences or workshops, he immediately thinks: “I must have that person I met at the Workshop. I must have someone from the IGLP.” He is especially grateful for the scholarly reach of the network, which fulfils its promise of global inclusion by “bringing everybody together at the same level.”
Nicolás was recently hired as a lecturer at Durham University in the United Kingdom. He holds a law degree (UBA), a Master’s in International Relations and Negotiations (FLACSO, Argentina) as well as an LL.M. and Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He has taught international investment and economic law in Colombia, Argentina, China and the United Kingdom, in addition to delivering talks, and publishing in leading international journals.
Amaya Álvez Marin (Chile) Associate Professor of Law and Political Science, University of Concepción, Chile Amaya reports that the IGLP “changed the way I saw the world.” As a member of the Mapuche people, an indigenous group in Chile, she credits her engagement with the IGLP as a turning point in her perception of the real world problems facing indigenous minorities. She joined the IGLP as a doctoral student in Canada in 2010 and quickly discovered the richness of the network. Amaya speaks enthusiastically about her “IGLP friends” who are collegial and collaborative, who read each other’s writing and offer support in the form of hosting talks, organizing panels and who “look for each other at conferences.” What Amaya describes as a “broader and deeper a web of academic friends” is also a growing pool of transnational and interdisciplinary expertise that allows each member of the IGLP community to access ideas, resources, and audiences that they could never find on their own. Since 2010, the IGLP has provided her with the unique opportunity to serve first as a docent, then as a Junior Faculty at multiple IGLP Workshops. She is particularly proud to have participated in the 2015 IGLP conference in Bogotá because it brought the global skills and expertise of IGLP participants to Latin America while actively involving the perspectives offered by local scholars. Thinking back to the 2015 IGLP Workshop in Colombia, Amaya puts it succinctly when she says that having support from the IGLP “makes everything possible.” She continues: “If you take the support out of the picture then it’s only a conversation among Harvard people - which is simply not enough.”
Amaya Álvez Marin is now an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at the Faculty of Social and Legal Studies and an Associate Researcher at the Fondap Water Centre for Mining and Agriculture, at the University of Concepción, Chile. Amaya received her LL.B from the University of Concepción (Chile) and was called to the Bar by the Supreme Court of Chile in 1998. She holds a D.E.A. from the Faculty of Law at the University of Liege, Belgium, an LL.M. from the Faculty of law at the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. in Law from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University in Toronto.

Luis Eslava (Colombia) Senior Lecturer in Law, Kent Law School, United Kingdom For Luis, connections are key: “I have profited from different types of connections at the IGLP: not only through the ability to advance different types of global research projects, but also by having a way of speaking to a global audience, and learning to look at the law in different ways. When you are a lawyer who moves around, this is important.” Luis joined the IGLP network in 2009 while mid-way through this Ph.D. Over the next five years, ultimately rising to serve as IGLP faculty, Luis has co-authored a number of scholarly papers in renowned international journals with colleagues he first encountered within the IGLP network. As Luis puts it, “the IGLP has brought together a global network of people working in different jurisdictions and different areas of law,” offering unique opportunities for global cross-collaboration and training. Working alongside IGLP faculty such as Michael Fakhri and Vasuki Nesiah, Luis received a collaborative research grant that led to an edited volume of research by more than 40 scholars drawn largely from the IGLP community. This collected volume, Bandung, Global History and International Law: Critical Pasts and Pending Futures is slated for publication by Cambridge University Press and is certain to make a significant contribution to the field of international legal history.
Luis Eslava is now a Senior Lecturer at Kent Law School in the UK, and an International Professor at the Universidad Externado de Colombia. Luis received his Ph.D. from Melbourne Law School where he wrote an award winning dissertation which he subsequently developed into a book, Local Space, Global Life: The Everyday Operation of International Law and Development, published by Cambridge University Press in 2015 after having been workshopped within the IGLP. Luis has taught in Melbourne, Germany, Colombia, and the UK. Luis’ research interests involve international law, property and economic development.
Nikolas Rajkovic (Canada) Professor of Law and Chair, Department of European and International Public Law, Tilburg Law School, Netherlands Nik describes the IGLP’s founding as “a truly institutional moment.” He first participated in an IGLP Workshop in 2011 as a postdoctoral scholar in Vienna. After finishing his degree, Nik felt out of place until he discovered the IGLP: “In the world of international law, the training was extremely orthodox. I didn’t find space for someone like me who was questioning the system. Then IGLP sprang up, and I found a home here. I found a space which I couldn’t find anywhere else.” As he deepened his collaboration within the network, he honed his teaching skills as a Workshop convener at Harvard Law School and in Doha. He also received a collaborative research grant which led to the development of an edited volume showcasing the works of his IGLP colleagues. Nik credits his long association with the IGLP for strengthening his interdisciplinary work, culminating in receiving a professorship at Tilburg Law School. Today, he serves as a member of the IGLP Academic Council and mentors young scholars in the network, continuing the IGLP tradition.
Nikolas M. Rajkovic is now Professor of Law and Chair of International Law at Tilburg Law School’s Department of European and International Public Law. Nikolas received his law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, a Master's in International Relations and European Studies from the Central European University in Budapest, and a Ph.D. from the European University Institute in Florence.

Usha Natarajan (Egypt) Assistant Professor and Associate Director, Center for Migration and Refugee Studies, American University in Cairo, Egypt For Usha, her experience at the IGLP has turned academic discontent into empowerment and inspiration: “Solidarity and friendships are the real thing at the IGLP. In a place like Egypt, it means so much more because there are times -like right now- when things are so bad that there’s no academic freedom and you can’t get projects. If you don’t have these kinds of alliances, it’s really hard to keep your spirits up.” Usha first attended the IGLP Workshop in 2010, soon after finishing her Ph.D. Beyond her time as a participant, she has served as an IGLP docent and a junior faculty member and has received two collaborative research grants, resulting in the publication of Locating Nature, a special issue of the Leiden Journal of International Law in 2014. Usha is especially grateful for the IGLP's convening power, exposing her to people who could “speak to us about things that no international lawyer could tell us anything about. There was just nowhere else that we have done something like that.” Her formative years at the IGLP strengthened her academic research and teaching, working with senior IGLP Faculty to translate her professional experience into the classroom. Since then, her various engagements with the IGLP have helped her transition from working with the UNDP and World Bank to a full-time academic appointment at the American University in Cairo, where she now serves as the Associate Director of the Center for Migration and Refugee Studies.
Usha Natarajan is now an Assistant Professor at the American University in Cairo, and the Associate Director of the university’s Center for Migration and Refugee Studies. She received a law degree from Monash University, a Master's in International Law from the United Nations University for Peace, and a Ph.D. from the Australian National University. Usha’s research is multidisciplinary and often incorporates the works and approaches of third world and postcolonial scholars of international law. Before turning to academia, Usha worked with a number of international organizations including the UNDP, UNESCO and the World Bank focusing on law reform initiatives in Asia.
Zinaida Miller (United States) Assistant Professor, Seton Hall School of Diplomacy and International Relations, New Jersey, United States Having first joined the IGLP as a Workshop participant, Zina's story is a model of the transformative life-cycle of an IGLP alum. “From the start, IGLP has been quite amazing,” Zina tells us. “There was this idea that there are lots of people doing interesting, critical, generative work around the world and at a senior level they have the privilege of knowing and finding each other, either because they were educated together or because each have the resources to talk to one another…[but] their students didn’t share that network or those resources.” As the catalyst for Zina's academic and professional development, the IGLP gave her access to the resources that would sharpen her research and pedagogic skills in a unique global context. “One initial urging of the IGLP was to connect all these people – interesting graduate students and young faculty that might have connections but no way to know of each other. And, it turns out, the IGLP totally achieved that.” As she prepared for a full-time teaching career in academia, the IGLP's mentoring and support was crucial, especially during her time as an IGLP Residential Fellow (2012-2014). While in residence at the IGLP, she met her most important mentors: senior IGLP faculty members Dennis Davis and Karen Engle. As she delved deeper into the IGLP network, she was grateful for the opportunity to co-teach at workshops in Doha, Cape Town, Cambridge, and Bogota. Today, she continues to be actively involved in the IGLP network.
Zina Miller now serves as Assistant Professor at Seton Hall School of Diplomacy and International Relations, and a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for the Study of International Development at McGill University. She holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School, a Master's in Law and Diplomacy as well as a Ph.D. from The Fletcher School at Tufts University. Zina’s work examines the law and policy of post-conflict reconstruction focusing on the interplay between ideas and institutions in the fields of transitional justice, state- and peace-building, human rights, and humanitarian aid. She has been published in a number of legal journals including the Cornell International Journal and the International Journal for Transitional Justice.

Vanja Hamzić (Bosnia and Herzegovina) Senior Lecturer, SOAS, University of London, United Kingdom For Vanja, pursuing a unique, comparative research agenda on Islamic law and political economy meant isolation from his global peers. In Vanja's words, the IGLP offered a cure to the “anthropological loneliness” that comes with academic scholarship. An IGLP alum since 2009, Vanja first entered the network as a Workshop participant. As he continued his involvement in the network, the IGLP quickly became his intellectual home away from home – a place where he found the interlocutors, encouragement, and the mentorship needed to grow as both a scholar and a teacher. To Vanja, the IGLP has served as a “network of scholars that you can rely on for all sorts of expertise and guidance.” Today, he describes IGLP as “the most important space in the annual circuit of conferences.” Having learned his trade through research grants and teaching opportunities afforded by IGLP Workshops in Doha and at Harvard, Vanja has recently (2016) been appointed Senior Lecturer at SOAS, University of London, where he says he feels he was “supposed to be from the beginning.”
Vanja Hamzi´c has recently been appointed Senior Lecturer at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. He holds two First Class Honors degrees from the University of Sarajevo, an LL.M. from the University of Nottingham and a Ph.D. in Law from King’s College London. He has worked as an activist and researcher with various international and civil society organizations in South Asia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe and South Africa. Vanja specializes in Islamic legal traditions, with a focus on Seljuk, Mamluk, Ottoman and Mughal laws and social norms. He has served as a Visiting Lecturer at Kings College and a Lecturer at City University in London and is the co-founder and former Co-Chair of the Centre for Ottoman Studies at SOAS.
Karolina Zurek (Poland) Senior Researcher in Law, Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies, Sweden Before Karolina joined the IGLP, she felt out of her element: “I was about to finish my Ph.D. and the questions I was asking didn’t resonate well with the academic context I came from.” Through her active involvement in the IGLP network since 2010, she was given the opportunity to ask those questions alongside intensive mentoring and support from her IGLP peers and faculty: “At the IGLP, on the other hand, people ask tricky and unusual questions. This was both comforting and inspiring.” Karolina was supported as a docent for the IGLP Workshops in Doha and at Harvard Law School. She received a collaborative research grant through an IGLP Pro-Seminar for a project on international law and environmental protection. Over the past five years she has continued this momentum, collaborating with her IGLP colleagues and expanding IGLP's reach wherever she goes. Karolina has been especially grateful for the diverse connections afforded to her by the IGLP: “Many of my IGLP colleagues work in less privileged places where funding for travel and networking is not easily available.” For Karolina, IGLP “makes a difference” by convening scholars from all across the world, including the Global South, to participate in conversations from which they would normally be excluded.
Karolina Zurek is now an analyst at the Swedish National Board of Trade and a Senior Researcher in Law at the Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies. She received a certificate of Comparative International Studies from Tilburg University, a Master in Law from Jagiellonian University, as well as a Master of Research and a Ph.D. in Law from the European University Institute in Florence. Karolina’s research focuses on the socioeconomic impact of transnational market regulation frequently in relation to food safety issues. She is widely published in international journals, and collected volumes, often with IGLP colleagues.
Impact: Residential Fellows
Residential Fellows The Fellowship Program offers full or partial student and post‐doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLP’s ongoing work. Applicants considered for Fellowships are those whose work is challenging, original and focused on progressive and alternative ideas about global law and policy. Often, work of this nature is not supported by mainstream institutional resources, and the IGLP strives to give opportunities for diverse ideas to flourish. IGLP Fellows are integral members of the Institute and provide valuable programming insight and assistance with the execution of our conferences and workshops. In recent years, our Fellows have included the following scholars, among many others:

Intellectual Impact: New Thinking/New Writing
Ideas matter. The IGLP was established to respond to an intellectual as well as a pedagogic challenge. To that end, we have developed an expansive global network of scholars and policy makers who share our belief that ideas matter and our commitment to new voices and viewpoints for thinking about global governance, social justice and economic policy. We now provide a platform for new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements, with particular emphasis on ideas and issues of importance to the global South. We support the emergence of new thinking through multi-year Research Projects spearheaded by our affiliated faculty, small group Pro-Seminars convening teams seeking to move their research toward publication, and a modest program of Collaborative Research Grants to encourage our alumni to undertake group research and writing projects and deepen the IGLP collaborative network. A list of our research activities and project grant recipients is included in the appendix of this report.
“This is a unique, one-of-a-kind intellectual enterprise... I don't think there is anything else globally that brings together so many high-quality minds engaging so rigorously on so many important themes. A truly global enterprise.”
IGLP Pro-Seminars act as a catalyst for the development of new ideas and modes of inquiry. Each is designed to facilitate creative dialog among young experts as they work toward publication. Recent Pro-Seminars have included: •
Re-Theorizing Global Liquidity: Public and Private
Contemporary Legal Thought (1970-Present)
The Role of Law in Structures of Global Production: Global Value Chains
Transnational Social Policy and Labor Regulation: Crisis and Change
Gender and Social Movements in Peace and Conflict
The Center and Periphery in Global Law and Political Economy: Colonialism to Development
Gender in Post-Colonial Legal Orders
Renewing Latin American Legal Studies
Global Poverty and Heterodox Development Pathways: Mapping, Method and Critique
Intellectual Impact: New Thinking/New Writing
Research Projects IGLP Research Projects are spearheaded by our affiliated faculty. Each is organized to engage scholars from outside the North Atlantic and perspectives from beyond the field of law. A short description of our most recent projects gives a sense for the range of ideas under development at IGLP. Corporate Power in Global Society This project explores the role of law in the construction, operation and governance of global value chains and production networks. Rethinking Money, Law and Finance in the Global Economy This project focuses on the lessons of heterodox and institutionalist traditions in both economic and legal science for understanding global political economy in the aftermath of the crisis. Expertise, Technology and Governance This project aims to strengthen research linking efforts to understand the role of expertise in global governance among IGLP scholars with parallel work undertaken in the Science and Technology Studies field. The Global Significance and Genealogy of Family Laws This project explores the global influences on family law and the significance of family law for global economic, political and legal arrangements in historical context. Global Poverty and Heterodox Economic Development Pathways This project is a collaborative effort among law and development scholars to present, map and critique the alternative development pathways emerging in the confused phase of the post-Washington Consensus. Heterodox Approaches to Islamic Law and Policy This project brings together a diverse group of established and emerging scholars to share critical and comparative methodologies and approaches to Islamic law and jurisprudence. Law and the New Developmental State This project assesses the political and institutional innovations associated with new developmentalism in Latin America. Project on Global Financial Regulation and Financial Inclusion This project explores three related areas: liquidity in the global economy, including foundational research on the nature of global liquidity and capital as legal institutions; financial inclusion and banking services for the â€œunbankedâ€? as an aspect of development policy; and financial service regulation in emerging markets and alternative paths to economic development. Bandung and the Global South: 60 Years of Transformative International Law This project reflects on the legacies of the 1955 Bandung Conference for international law going forward. More than 15 members of the IGLP network have collaborated on this project from countries as varied as Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, Egypt, Syria, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
“I feel humbled by how much I have learned from all of you... It was a rare and delicious treat. It’s been a privilege.”
Intellectual Impact: New Thinking/New Writing
Outcomes: Publication We can now see the hard work of our global network begin to bear fruit. Scores of our faculty and alumni have published books with major publishers or have had their articles appear in leading international law journals. Several have published major volumes that shine new light on the potential for global governance and international law affecting pressing issues of global regulation and policy. The following examples suggest the range and quality of scholarship developed by our affiliated scholars in part, or in whole, through conversations and collaboration with colleagues at the IGLP. A partial list of other scholarly projects and publications sparked by the IGLP which authors have shared with the community through our social media platforms is included in the appendix of this report.
In 2013, David Trubek (University of Wisconsin) explored the emerging forms of new state activism in Brazil and elsewhere, resulting in the publication of a new scholarly text on Law and the New Developmental State: The Brazilian Experience in Latin American Context.
In 2014, Harvard Law Professor Christine Desan published Making Money: Coin, Currency and the Coming of Capitalism. The work, which emerged out of her IGLP Research Project, Pro-Seminar and Workshop Stream, is an exciting new theory of the history of the modern monetary system which describes its origins and the eventual development of capitalism.
Professor Jorge Esquirol (Florida International University College of Law) has published two volumes relating to his IGLP Pro-Seminar on Renewing Latin American Legal Studies. His latest book, Las Ficciones del Derecho Latinoamericano, published in 2014 is a Spanish-language text published by Los Andes University Press and Siglo del Hombre in Bogota, Colombia which examines the historical failings of, and the future potential for, Latin American legal systems. The collaborative work undertaken in his Pro-Seminar also led to a volume of new scholarship on Renewing Latin American Legal Studies published in 2012.
This year Professor David Kennedy (Harvard Law School) published A World of Struggle: How Power, Law and Expertise Shape Global Political Economy with Princeton University Press. In 2013, along with Professor Joseph Stiglitz, he published a major work on Law and Economics with Chinese Characteristics: Institutions for Promoting Development in the Twenty-First Century. Using Chinaâ€™s economic development as a backdrop, the book seeks to aid policymakers in both developing and developed countries to create - or in the latter case reform - institutional and regulatory frameworks to achieve equitable and sustained development.
Since 2013, Professor Gunter Â¨ Frankenberg (Goethe University), a member of the IGLP Academic Council, has published two books: Political Technology and the Erosion of the Rule of Law: Normalizing the State of Exception (2014) and a collection of essays entitled Order from Transfer: Comparative Constitutional Design and Legal Culture (2013).
In 2013, Professor Amr Shalakany (American University in Cairo), who helped develop our workshop stream on Revitalizing the Arab and Islamic Legal Traditions and received a collaborative research grant from the IGLP, published The Rise and Fall of Egypt’s Legal Elite: 1805-2005.
In 2013, Charlotte Peevers (University of Glasgow), a member of our Workshop Junior Faculty and the recipient of a collaborative research grant from the IGLP, had her first book, The Politics of Justifying Force: the Suez Crisis, the Iraq War, and International Law published by Oxford University Press.
Our collaborative research group on Critical Approaches to International Criminal Law, headed by Christine Schwobel (Liverpool Law School) had a volume of essays on Critical Approaches to International Criminal Law – An Introduction published by Routledge Press in 2014. The text, the first of its kind dedicated to this topic, is an enormous accomplishment for a group of scholars only beginning to embark on their academic careers.
In 2011, a group of IGLP alumni began a collaborative research project, led by Usha Natarajan (The American University in Cairo), which resulted in a series of articles in a special symposium issue of the Leiden Journal of International Law in 2014.
“The IGLP is a vibrant, collegiate atmosphere and I know this doesn’t happen by accident. Since becoming involved in the IGLP I have about fifty new friends, a good handful of whom I have discussed the possibility of future collaboration. Thank you for making it possible.”
The social impact of the IGLP’s work can be seen when: • the scholars we train teach the leaders of tomorrow • the research and policy assessments we encourage affect global policy discussion • university educators utilize the curricular materials and pedagogic models we have developed • scholars, policy makers and partner institutions draw on our network as a resource In a few short years, we are proud to have built a strong record of impact.
“...a stimulating, resource-laden week! I will be taking lots of ideas back to my university with me.”
The Multiplier Effect: Train the Trainers Stronger university faculties, attuned to global developments and networked with colleagues worldwide, will impact students for a generation, strengthening tomorrowâ€™s global leaders and enhancing the availability of skilled interlocutors for global commercial and policy discussion. At IGLP, we have helped more than 185 senior and junior faculty develop these skills. The result is a unique multiplier effect that replicates the IGLP model in hundreds of university classrooms around the world. 97% of our faculty report that their experiences with the IGLP have had a significant impact on their students. Over the past seven years, we have calculated the reach of this impact to include over 40,000 students who have directly benefited from IGLP-trained Junior and Senior Faculty. These core IGLP faculty have mentored an additional 718 scholars who are now or aspire to become university teachers from more than 300 universities. The impact of our training on their students is incalculable. The power of our training is recognized by universities and faculties around the world. We have received thousands of requests to participate in our network. Since 2009, we have received over 3,000 recommendations from faculty requesting training and support for their students. More than 80 institutions have shared their senior faculty with us to teach in our global and regional workshops.
Curricular Innovation Our most useful and significant output has been curricular and pedagogic innovation for university level professional education. University faculties of law and policy worldwide struggle to build courses that engage the global legal environment. Practice and policy today are not only global but comparative. To prepare students for global practice, courses must be reimagined in ways difficult for faculty in any single national legal culture to undertake. We have now developed and tested materials for 28 courses through cross-disciplinary and transnational collaboration among senior faculty. Each represents a multi-year effort to train faculty, develop the sophisticated comparative and innovative framework needed for new global courses, and start the work of assembling teachable materials to be harvested by any global law school. The materials are particularly impactful for faculty working with limited resources. Through our Workshops, we have trained 74 junior faculty from 31 countries in their classroom use in addition to the hundreds of Workshop participants who have taken their IGLP experiences back to their own students. A full list of these curricular innovations is included in the appendix to this report. The IGLP Workshop curriculum represents a major academic and intellectual investment by IGLP network faculty over six years in the difficult intellectual work and team building necessary to generate a truly global and regionally focused curriculum in the fields of law and policy.
â€œThe IGLP strengthens our ability to open up the horizons of critical engagement in novel, surprising and intellectually stimulating ways.â€? 49
Curricular Innovation: Teaching in Global Perspective Law schools teach Corporate Law from a narrowly national perspective, rarely including real world and transnational perspectives. Over 5 years, 3 senior IGLP faculty collaborated to develop innovative curricular materials to bring a global and interdisciplinary perspective to corporate law: Dan Danielsen, a corporate and international law expert from Northeastern University; Dennis Davis, a long time judge and government expert in South Africa; and Gary Gereffi, a renowned sociologist of organizations and global value chains from Duke University. Their materials focused on global value chain governance and global antitrust. Over several IGLP Workshops, they tested and expanded those materials by co-teaching with 9 junior faculty from multiple countries, adapting the materials to keep apace with the global corporate landscape. Contributing Junior Faculty brought insights from the disciplines of international political economy, international law, business organization, economics and sociology, offering an unparalleled opportunity for participants to gain new insights into a field traditionally viewed through a narrow lens.

Platform for Policy Engagement By training scholars and policymakers to think in a globally-integrated way, we aim to strengthen global conversations across business, civil society, and government. The university instruction of thousands of students of law and policy across the world has been strengthened by IGLP training of their professors. They will be the leaders and global citizens of the next generation.
“I have learned a great deal which will be immediately applicable in my work and scholarship! I leave enriched and wanting to contribute to the field of law, but more importantly, wanting my newfound knowledge to impact the development agenda of my country.”
We have sought to engage policy professionals and scholars in direct dialog to develop a model for policy relevant academic research and professional engagement. For example, in August 2012 the IGLP collaborated with VISA on a research mission in Bangkok and policy roundtable at Harvard focused on new financial services regulation and developmental strategies in the emerging markets of the ASEAN region. The initiative brought scholars from the IGLP network into sustained conversation with high-level government officials and industry representatives. Opportunities for networked South-South policy dialog among scholars and thought leaders remain rare. The IGLP network is a powerful resource to that end. We made a particular effort to foster continent-wide policy discussion with global peers in our African and Latin American activities. Participants were uniform in their enthusiasm. One Cape Town participant wrote: “The opportunity it offered Africans in the diaspora to meet with one another and with Africans in Africa to exchange ideas about Africa’s problems is, to me, the best thing about this Workshop. I would appeal to the IGLP to please continue to give Africans this opportunity.” Through our focus on cross-training, interdisciplinary collaboration, and South-South collaboration, we seek to better understand our global situation, connecting the dots between sectors and disciplines, cross-pollinating ideas, and ultimately strengthening our global infrastructure.
The Network as Resource With over 1,100 alumni from 94 countries and over 300 institutions, the IGLP network has become an important professional and institutional resource in ways we never could have predicted in 2009. IGLP faculty and their institutions routinely rely upon the network in faculty and staff recruitment. It is a source for inspiration, research support, project collaboration, mentoring and peer to peer training for scholars across the world. IGLPers regularly convene their own ad hoc events, research groups, and other collaborative efforts, a testament to the self-sustaining nature and momentum of the network. As Georgetown Law School professor Alvaro Santos told us: â€œPeople are inviting each other for projects, presentations, to form panels for other conferences. Now my own doctoral students are coming to IGLP to present their work and study the Institute's different models of scholarship. Many of us who started here now have the chance to recruit new people. The IGLP network is the space where everything comes together.â€? The IGLP network has also attracted institutional support and engagement, serving as a global framework for cross-disciplinary expertise and transnational collaboration. In Madrid, we partner closely with Complutense University which has a unique and long-standing relationship with Harvard University through the Real Colegio Complutense, a founding partner for the Institute. We now also work closely with Melbourne Law School, Sciences Po Law School, The Rapoport Center at the University of Texas at Austin, Harvard University Center for African Studies, Tilburg Law School, SOAS at the University of London, University of Los Andes and the University of Cape Town, all of whom contribute financially to our programs. Many other institutions contribute time and financial resources on an informal basis. We have collaborated with several dozen universities and faculties worldwide in co-sponsoring programs, serving as Workshop hosts, sites for collaborative faculty initiatives and other research projects. These alliances anchor the IGLP network at strategic locations that scale our unique impact model around the world.
â€œAn extraordinary mix of perspectives shared with a generosity that makes the whole greater than the sum of the parts for each and every participant.â€?
Reputation and Visibility: Building our Brand
The IGLP: Reputation for Excellence The IGLP name and logo have become powerful quality indicators that distinguish and enhance the reputations of those in our network. We have established a clear brand definition and consistent public face integrating our advertising, on line promotion, network social media outreach and event materials. Our alumni are our most enthusiastic brand ambassadors, taking our name with them in over 300 universities and classrooms around the world. They are especially eager to broadcast their affiliation with the IGLP and routinely credit us for their scholarly accomplishments â€“ both internally within the network and externally to their publishers, students, and colleagues. As we continue to nurture and grow the IGLP brand, visibility is a key part of our strategy. Beyond the word of mouth awareness generated by our network, our comprehensive marketing and outreach strategy has been designed to nurture and expand our reputation through activities that reinforce the IGLP as a leading global institute for the study of law and policy. We do this both online and on campuses around the world.
Online and On Campus Interest in the IGLP grows year over year, as evidenced through our increased engagements on the web. The IGLP website serves as our primary digital hub. With over 9,000 monthly page views, we have actively carved out a distinct online presence. IGLP Faculty and alumni contact us daily with news of their accomplishments, which we actively promote within the network through social media and to the 2,000 growing subscribers of our email newsletter. Our social media presence allows us to engage the IGLP network in real time. On Facebook, we now have over 5,185 likes, with a rapidly growing following. In the first half of 2016, we had a reach of over 82,000 - our best year on social media to date - for a cumulative Facebook reach of over 187,000 since 2013. We also interact with the IGLP network on Twitter, where we have over 1,000 followers, resulting in over 91,000 Twitter impressions since 2014. In addition to social media, we routinely advertise on reputable blogs and online legal journals and directories in order to attract a diverse and highly qualified pool of applicants. Through these portals, hundreds of thousands of young scholars, students and policy professionals have been exposed to the IGLP brand. We actively promote our activities on campus and in print at over 100 universities in the United States, Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia as we recruit participants and faculty, and reach hundreds more through on-line and social media outreach. We communicate regularly with the Harvard Law School network of 1,500 students and faculty, including a dedicated list-serv of 285 students, and across the wider Harvard campus of 21,000 current students.

The Way Forward
The network and innovation platform we have built together is unique in the world. The IGLP has already made an invaluable contribution to global research, strengthened university education in law and policy, and built a deep network of scholars from hundreds of universities and national traditions eager to collaborate with one another. We are proud of our track record of institutional innovation, the quality of our programs and the impact we have had on scholars across the world. We have placed scholars, university teachers and policy makers across the globe in sustained dialogue, equipped with the tools to navigate the policy terrain of this century as they work to develop innovative responses our most pressing global issues. Since we began, the policy challenges facing the global system have only become more difficult to address. From poverty alleviation to armed conflict, climate change to managing national and global economic growth, the new global economy and a more plural political world have changed the terrain. As a result, it is vital that every region have the expertise necessary to understand and address them. Young leaders everywhere need the most advanced training if they are to compete. New thinking, alternative and heterodox approaches are needed. Yet a global perspective on law and policy remains rare, voices beyond the North Atlantic continue to be absent from the global conversation, and universities find it difficult to identify young scholars able to train leaders for a global economy.
To meet these continuing challenges, we have identified three main priorities for the coming years. • Renew our program cycle annually through a process of continuous evaluation and improvement while intensifying collaboration now underway among IGLP alumni and faculty We will continue to strengthen the IGLP network through the Workshop now relocated to Madrid. We plan to expand the post-Workshop opportunities for ever deeper collaborative research within the network through our pro-seminars, research grants and fellowship opportunities at Harvard and inaugurate a new series of research missions to bring affiliated faculty into conversation with policy experts in Latin America, Africa, the former Soviet space and Asia.
• Deepen links with the practicing profession and policy community We now have the network and track record to engage effectively in policy dialog across a range of pressing issues, through policy roundtables, investigative missions and integration of professional perspectives into capacity building efforts. We hope to draw on the expertise of our law firm partners and alumni to deepen collaborative discussion between the academic and professional worlds. We are exploring a roundtable on innovation policy to be convened in San Francisco in fall 2017 with leading representatives of Silicon Valley enterprise alongside our network of scholars analyzing innovation in science and technology. We are exploring a second innovation policy mission in Singapore with partners in Austria. We plan to strengthen our collaboration with partner institutions in Latin America, Africa, Asia, Russia and Europe to deepen links with the world of policy.
• Actively pursue new opportunities to grow and expand the IGLP's global reach Affiliation with the IGLP network is a force multiplier for individual scholars and institutions alike. We are working with our institutional partners and exploring new links to decentralize IGLP activities and deepen our capacity for advanced research and policy engagement. We have received commitments from University partners in South Africa, Brazil, Colombia and Asia to join with us to establish regional faculty development initiatives. We are working to secure a viable partner in Russia.
Having come so far, we are committed to mobilizing the institutional models and human network we have pioneered to ensure the IGLP fulfills its potential as the leading global arena for new thinking on issues of global law and economic policy. We will do all we can to ensure the IGLP will remain a global mark of academic distinction and policy innovation.
“The investment in community building and collective learning has produced an environment that is generous, fresh, open, challenging, and supportive all in one. It is understanding and remaking the world one person and one project at a time.” 59

IGLP Events and Initiatives: 2015-2016
Travel Grants The IGLP provides modest travel support to a small number of scholars conducting research in areas closely related to the IGLP’s ongoing work. Applications are open to current Harvard Law School (HLS) students, researchers, and alumni. We hope to encourage focus on the life of the mind, on interdisciplinary reading, and on developing the intellectual background to understand and contribute to critical analyses of global law and social justice. Travel grants are limited to students who have been invited to present their scholarly work at academic conferences and are generally not available to students who have received other funding from HLS for the same trip. In most cases, the IGLP support does not exceed $500 toward the cost of travel for conferences in the US and $1,000 for conferences outside the US. In 2015-2016 the IGLP awarded the following travel grants: Yaniv Lushinsky: Presentation at the “Sex Aher” (“Different Sex”) conference at Tel Aviv University (June 2016) - Tel Aviv, Israel Onur Özgöde: Presentation at the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics conference, University of California, Berkeley (June 2016) - Berkeley, California, USA

Curricular Innovation Since 2010 we have developed 28 curricular packages to explore innovative ways to teach about law and policy in a global context. These experimental efforts have generated and tested materials designed to illuminate contemporary policy problems, revisit classic texts and provide an overview of new thinking in each of these fields. 69 senior faculty from 44 universities have been involved in their design. We have mentored and trained 74 young teachers from 31 countries to teach them by working alongside our senior faculty in the workshop setting. Alternative Perspectives on Global Law | 2010 Using a range of contemporary scholarship that rethinks the nature of international public law and global governance, this stream explores the tradition of "materialist" social thought and the alternative historical and contemporary approaches to international law that are inspired by, or arise out of, that tradition. Faculty: Matthew Craven (United Kingdom) SOAS, University of London | 2010 Susan Marks (United Kingdom) London School of Economics and Political Science | 2010 Climate Change, Energy and Sustainability | 2016 This stream investigates the effects of climate change on life and economics, including the efforts required to control it, the commitments of governments, the special treatment of underdeveloped countries, and the emergence of international rules and environmental laws. Faculty: Emilio Cerdá (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid | 2016 Clara García Fernández-Muro (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid) | 2016 Finance, Banking, and International Liquidity | 2011, 2016 The stream on money, finance and banking reviews approaches the current global financial architecture as an extension of the constitutional project of a global finance capitalism. We propose a political and institutional analysis of this global financial architecture. Faculty: Leopold Specht (Austria) Specht and Partner Law Firm | 2011, 2016 Isabel Feichtner (Spain) Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main | 2016 Comparative Legal Studies | 2013 – 2016 This stream examines the global legal order as but one among many distinct and internally diverse legal cultures, tracing the influence and dispersion of ideas and modes of legal analysis as well as institutional practices, and engaging with other sciences and fields of research, such as development, investment, or finance, where interdisciplinary, comparative and historical analysis have become essential. Faculty: Dan Brinks (United States) University of Texas at Austin | 2014 & 2016 Jorge Esquirol (United States) Florida International University College of Law | 2013 Günter Frankenberg (Germany) Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University | 2013-2016 Damjan Kukovec (Slovenia) Harvard Law School | 2013 Boris Mamlyuk (United States) University of Memphis School of Law | 2014 Derek McKee (Canada) Université de Sherbrooke | 2013 Horatia Muir-Watt (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2013-2015 Zoran Oklopcic (Croatia & Italy) Carleton University 2014 & 2015 Nurfadzilah Yahaya (Singapore) Washington University in St. Louis | 2015 Mika Yokoyama (Japan) Kyoto University | 2015
The Corporation in Global Society | 2012 – 2015 This stream considers the relationship between local or national rules and transnational economic activity, with particular emphasis on the role of corporations in global political economy. Faculty: John Ansah (Ghana) University of Cape Coast | 2015 Grietje Baars (The Netherlands) The City Law School, City University of London | 2014 & 2015 Dan Danielsen (United States) Northeastern University School of Law | 2012-2015 Dennis Davis (South Africa) High Court of Cape Town | 2012-2015 Gary Gereffi (United States) Duke University | 2014 Vanja Hamzi´c (Bosnia & Herzegovina) SOAS, University of London | 2012 Jason Jackson (The Bahamas) Massachusetts Institute of Technology | 2012 Boris Mamlyuk (United States) University of Memphis School of Law | 2013 Shanthi Senthe (Canada) Thompson Rivers University | 2015 Karolina Zurek (Poland) Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies | 2013 Emerging Global Legal Characters: Arbitrators, Judges & Transnational Legal Analysis | 2011 The aim of this stream is to re-imagine the character of judicial actors in a transnational space, in much the same way Ronald Dworkin and others re-imagined the national judge in the 1970s, and to map the new transnational legal ‘ordre du discours’ to which they belong. Faculty: Horatia Muir-Watt (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2011 Guillaume Tusseau (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2011 Mikhail Xifaras (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2011 European Crisis and Further Integration | 2016 Europe is in crisis, experiencing very slow growth and an absence of fiscal policy to accompany the quantitative monetary easing. These problems are being exacerbated by a number of events: “Brexit,” Greece’s own economic crisis, and the political instability of Spain and Ireland. Finally, the challenges of immigration and the refugee crisis are resulting in less, rather than more integration. The future of Europe is in danger. Faculty: Rafael Myro (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid | 2016 Simón Sosvilla (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid | 2016 Globalization, Transnational Companies and Partnership Agreements | 2016 The ability of TNCs to avoid taxes all over the world is a cause for concern for all nations and multilateral organizations, resulting in a call for improved and more general rules. On the other hand, TPP and TTIP are the objects of strong discussion and opposing positions among economists and lawyers. By their supporters they are seen as a means to improve international trade and capital flows and, subsequently, globalization. By those who oppose them though, they are seen as a mechanism to pave the way for multinational companies. Faculty: José Carlos Fariñas (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid | 2016 Akira Kohsaka (Japan) Osaka University, Faculty of Economics | 2016
Globalization and Labor | 2013-2014 & 2016 This stream considers the impact of global legal structures and global financial and technological integration on labor markets, and on the oft-noted tension between developed country workers who stand to lose from a race to the bottom in labor standards, and developing country workers who stand to gain by using their comparative advantage in low labor standards. Faculty: Diamond Ashiagbor (United Kingdom) SOAS, University of London | 2016 Adelle Blackett (Canada) McGill University | 2016 Dennis Davis (South Africa) High Court of Cape Town | 2016 Jason Jackson (The Bahamas) Massachusetts Institute of Technology | 2016 Vidya Kumar (Canada) University of Birmingham | 2013-2014 Kerry Rittich (Canada) University of Toronto Faculty of Law | 2014 & 2016 Brishen Rogers (United States) Temple University, Beasley School of Law | 2013& 2016 Katherine Stone (United States) UCLA School of Law | 2013 Global Law: Universality and Constitutionalism | 2010 This stream examines the structure of constitutionalism and the distinction between primary and secondary rules, hierarchy of norms, and judicial review, as they relate to the universal legal framework for social actors to achieve institution-building purposes in the global area. Faculty: Guillaume Tusseau (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2010 Mikhail Xifaras (France) Sciences Po Law School | 2010 Global Science and Technology Studies | 2012 - 2015 This stream focuses on the relationships among science, technology, and political power in contemporary societies. It draws on the field of science and technology studies to help us better understand how the modern state’s capacity to produce and use scientific knowledge as it influences, and is influenced by, the production and maintenance of political order. Faculty: Aziza Ahmed (United States) Northeastern University Law School | 2013 Isabel Álvarez (Spain) Universidad Complutense de Madrid | 2016 Ben Hurlbut (United States) Arizona State University | 2014-2016 Sheila Jasanoff (United States) Harvard Kennedy School | 2013-2016 Andrew Lang (United Kingdom) The London School of Economic and Political Science | 2014 & 2016 Matthew Nicholson (United Kingdom) University College London | 2012 James Parker (United Kingdom) Melbourne Law School | 2015 Vesco Paskalev (Bulgaria) European University Institute | 2014 Gustavo Ribeiro (Brazil) Harvard Law School | 2012 & 2013 History of American Legal Thought | 2011 This stream reviews a canonical set of materials from the American tradition of legal scholarship from Oliver Wendell Holmes to the present. We ask what, if anything, makes the North American way of thinking about law distinctive, consider the foundational texts for the major “schools” of American legal scholarship, and explore how the American tradition looks and how it has been received outside the United States. Faculty: David Kennedy (United States) Harvard Law School | 2011 Alvaro Santos (Mexico) Georgetown Law | 2011
“The IGLP provides a pivotal interdisciplinary infrastructure for a transnational community.” 88
Human Rights, Global Poverty and Development | 2014 & 2016 As global poverty and North/South inequality become increasing sources of political conflict and humanitarian crisis, human rights is increasingly becoming a normative concept and pragmatic tool for countering it.

International Economic Law and Regulation | 2010-2015 This stream explores theoretical approaches to plural economic governance and examines examples (such as the trade regime or international investment law) that illustrate how transnational economic regulation advances various and sometimes conflicting policy objectives ranging from facilitation of cross-border transactions to local development and social regulation.
