Book Launch “Towards a Global Core Value System in Doctoral Education”

The editors and authors of the UCL Press publication “Towards a Global Core Value System in Doctoral Education” invite to an online book launch event:

“Towards a Global Core Value System in Doctoral Education” provides an evaluation of changes and reforms in doctoral education since 2000. Recognizing the diversity of academic cultures and institutional systems worldwide, experts and early career researchers in the Global North and South collaborated in interdisciplinary and intergenerational teams to develop guidelines for doctoral education. They learned from each other about how to act courageously within a complex global context. The resulting recommendations are an invitation to reflect on the frames and conditions of doctoral education today.

The book advocates for a core value system for doctoral education presented through seven key recommendations. The book launch event is honored by a key-note address by Professor Jonathan Jansen, PhD (Stellenbosch University, SA). Authors and editors will present and discuss different aspects of doctoral education from the book chapters.

If you are a university leader, professor, researcher, policy maker, or a doctoral candidate concerned to move our societies forward to a more just, inclusive, and humane world, please join us in these 90 minutes book launch event on October 10, 2022.
