The Jefferson Scholars Foundation’s National Fellowship Program supports outstanding scholars at top institutions across the country who are completing dissertations that: employ history to shed light on American politics and public policy, examine the intersection of technology and democracy, study the impact of global affairs on the United States, media and politics, and/or examine the role of the presidency in shaping American political development.
The aim of this conference is to investigate the ethics and practice of fairness that constitute the processes, goals and indicators of sustainable development. We encourage researchers and practitioners to use the SDGs as a lens to explore and assess Fair Trade's contribution to date and potential to support a global agenda towards sustainable development.
