The Scuola Superiore Meridionale (SSM) in Naples invites applications for 7 fully-funded scholarships (of which 2 are funded by the EU via the PNRR) in the PhD program in Global History and Governance for the academic year 2022-2023

The Program: The PhD in Global History and Governance consists of an advanced course of study and research at the end of which the student defends a thesis based on original and independent scientific work.

The course offers an educational program based on a multi-disciplinary approach centred on history and law and opened to contributions of other disciplines.

The PhD program in Global History and Governance is aimed at highly motivated students with a solid personal background and diverse language skills.

The programme focuses on the comparisons, connections, and processes of globalization that have characterized different areas of the planet between the 16th and the 20th  century and does so by concentrating on the relational dimension of historical processes, legal regimes, and the organization of power; on the interconnections between economic, political, legal, cultural and social factors; and on circulation, exchange and interconnection of ideas, persons, institutions, legal cultures, political models, concepts, rights and goods on a global scale.
