The Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, situated on
the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people, seeks to host
an exceptional scholar from the Global South for a short-term, fully funded visiting scholar in-residence
program. For the purposes of this competition, “Global South” includes all low or middle-income countries
located in Africa, Asia, Central and Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and the Caribbean.
The successful Global South Visiting Scholar (GSVS) will spend a minimum of two weeks and maximum of
one term in residence at the Peter A. Allard School of Law. For this iteration of the program, the GSVS
must be able to complete this opportunity during the 2023 calendar year. In order to facilitate active
participation in the Law School community, the GSVS must arrange to be in residence during Allard’s
academic year, January-March 2023 or September-November 2023. Preference may be given to
candidates who are able to attend during the January-March 2023 term. As part of their visit, the GSVS is
expected to give lectures, hold sessions with faculty and graduate students, and conduct independent
research. The ideal candidate will be an early to mid-career scholar with a demonstrated commitment to
research and/or legal work in the area of resource extraction and/or land grabs, with a particular focus on
the rights of Indigenous peoples and local communities. Preference will be given to candidates with a
demonstrated interest in international or comparative law.
