PhD Scholarship Positions at the International Center for Development and
Decent Work (ICDD) in Social and Agricultural Sciences
Universität Kassel and partner universities in Latin America, Africa and
Asia

Application Deadline: 30 November 2015
Scholarship Start: 1 May 2016
The ICDD is an interdisciplinary and international scientific network of
excellence with the head office located at the University of Kassel
(Germany) and partner universities in Latin America, Africa and Asia. It
co-operates closely with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and
various NGOs. The ICDD is funded by the programme “ex)/(ceed – Higher
Education Excellence in Development Cooperation” launched by the German
Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through
the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). In the framework of its
Graduate School of Socio-Ecological Research for Development, the ICDD
invites students from ODA recipient countries* to apply for a PhD
scholarship position in a particular academic field at an ICDD partner
university:
â—‹ Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil, in economics,
â—‹ University of Cape Coast (UCC), Ghana, in development studies,
â—‹ Egerton University (EGU), Kenya, in agricultural science,
â—‹ University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF), Pakistan, in agricultural
science,
â—‹ University of Kassel, Germany, in agricultural science,
â—‹ University of Kassel, Germany, in the social sciences,
â—‹ Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), India, in labour studies.
Background The ICDD is making a committed contribution to the attainment of
Target 2 “Full and Productive Employment and Decent Work for All” of
Millennium Development Goal 1 “Eradicate Extreme Poverty & Hunger”
(MDG 1). The concept of decent work is ILO’s strategic response to
globalization. It highlights four key dimensions of fair globalization:
1. Full employment (including enterprise creation),
2. Respect for basic workers’ rights,
3. Social protection and
4. Social dialogue.
The decent work agenda received a strong boost in 2005 when the UN World
Summit proclaimed decent work for all to be part of the MDGs. Against the
background of widespread unemployment, underemployment and unfair working
conditions, full employment and decent work for all will remain on the
international post MDG 2015 agenda and, therefore, in the focus of the
ICDD.
One of ICDD’s main objectives in this context is to generate and transfer
knowledge on creating and improving work and income opportunities in rural
and urban regions of developing countries in light of globalization,
climate change and urbanization. One of the ICDD's main facilities for the
interdisciplinary generation of knowledge is the Graduate School of
Socio-Ecological Research for Development. Successful applicants will
become doctoral fellows of this school. While the ICDD encompasses various
disciplines such as agricultural science, political science, sociology and
economics, it is strongly committed to promoting inter- and
multidisciplinary approaches. Hence, it particularly invites applications
from PhD candidates seeking to develop or include such a research
perspective. The ICDD supports research in four main thematic areas to
which PhD projects must relate:
1) Decent work along agricultural value chains
2) Organizing the informal economy
3) Extractivism and rural welfare
4) Rural-urban linkages: transformation processes, livelihoods, and social
protection
5) Rethinking development cooperation
