Structure of Globelics

Globelics is an informal network. Most activities are initiated and organized at a local level.

The Globelics Constitution was decided by a unanimous Globelics Scientific Board the 15th October 2016 in Bandung, Indonesia . The aim is to give scholars who are active in the network the opportunity to become Members of Globelics and through voting procedure to influence the composition of the Globelics Scientific Board.

Read the Globelics Constitution

One implication is that Globelics  established a formal Membership in the beginning of 2017. Members who subscribe to the preamble in the constitution and who have taken active part in Globelics conferences will be offered to apply for membership. Members can be nominated as candidates to become members of the next Globelics Scientific Board and they can themselves nominate candidates and finally they can give their votes in the election.

Globelics organises the Globelics Conference and the Globelics Academy for Ph.D.-students. The conference location changes every year while the academy location shifts between the North and the South. Normally the local hosts are responsible for fund-raising. There may be exceptions when, for example, an activity is located in a low-income country. Local organisers are also responsible for the design of the activity based on the general principles laid out by the Scientific Board.
