Watson InstituteStudy in the CSSR, see the world!  CSSR students will be travelling widely over coming months. Singumbe Muyeba and Carlos Shenge have fully-funded places on a summer school in June at Brown University, in the USA, on "Development and Inequality in the Global South". The CSSR is one of the international partners of Brown University's Watson Institute, and we look forward to sending many more students to Brown in future.

Kai Thaler and Rutendo Murambiwa have fully-funded places on a summer school to be held in July in Olympia, in Greece, on research methods in the study of conflict. The summer school is supported by the "Microcon" research consortium on the microfoundations of violent conflict, in which the CSSR is a partner.

Finally, Ed Grebe has followed in the footsteps of previous CSSR-based students Brendan Maughan-Brown and Colin Almeleh in winning a prestigious Fox Fellowship, allowing him to spend the 2010-11 academic year at Yale University in the USA. Congratulations to all five of our students!
