The aim of the Visiting Scholar Program is to provide intellectual impetus for the Quality of Government (QoG) Institute. We aim at inviting cutting-edge scholars who conduct studies on issues related to the research carried out at the QoG Institute. Visiting scholars are welcome to stay for one or two weeks. Longer stays may also be negotiated. We aim at maximum flexibility in order to increase chances for participation. The only requirement is that the stay in Gothenburg falls within the seminar period (September 1 – December 15 and January 15 – June 10).
The visiting scholars will have few obligations during their stay. All that is required is that they present their ongoing research at our research seminars. Apart from that, we just want visitors to be around, meet the QoG people and keep working on their respective research topic. We will provide you with an office and full access to the infrastructure of the university (computer network, library, photocopying, fax, e-mail etc). We believe that the Quality of Government Institute and the Department of Political Science in general offers a stimulating research environment for visitors. Our seminars are renowned for hosting interesting visitors and stimulating discussions. Our working language is English.
