Early-career scholars Scholarship by Fung Global Fellows Program
Published: 01 Jan 1970
Princeton University is inviting International scholars from all over the world, to participate in the Fung Global Fellows Program for International Scholars.
The topic of the Program is “Thinking Globally" and is centred on how people's thoughts about the planet has informed the institutions, norms, and policies that have pulled it together and torn it apart.
For centuries, ideas of free trade, human rights or global governance have framed cooperation and competition, order and disorder. Such ideas have also spawned border-crossing movements, from campaigns to end slavery to commitments to reduce carbon emissions. In turn, global thinking and action have often reinforced commitments to national ideas and efforts to curb global exchange.
The goal of this research theme is to explore how ideas framed the understanding of interests and the making of institutions that have yielded commonness and conflict across and within borders. Fung Global also want to understand how these ideas and practices came into being through scientific networks, foundations, and think tanks.
