Ersta Skondal University College

ISTR held our third ISTR PhD Seminar in 2016 -  preceding the 12th International Conference in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2016. The ISTR PhD Seminar is a recurring event that takes place bi-annually in conjunction with the international conference.

The ISTR PhD Seminar is open to all doctoral students in the field of third sector and civil society
research, across the different regions in the world, and at all stages of their doctoral research.

The aim of the workshop is to provide doctoral students with the opportunity to receive extensive
intellectual and methodological advice on their doctoral research, to introduce them to main
theories and developments in the field, to reflect upon publication and career strategies,
and to provide a unique opportunity to network with junior and senior scholars within the
international ISTR research community.

ISTR is an organization known for friendliness and collegiality – which we hope will be enhanced by our mentoring/hosting program.  The Society has begun a one year pilot program –that runs between June 2016 with the Stockholm conference and continues until June 2017. The objective is to assist students with professional development and engagement.
