For the PhD student starting at King’s, access to IRI at USP offers a wealth of courses, expertise. Areas covered include regional economic integration in South America; South Atlantic security issues; and global environmental challenges from a Brazilian perspective. For the PhD starting at USP, our specialists in War Studies, Political Economy, Geography and the Brazil Institute can offer expertise in areas that may not be covered at IRI. We believe that institutionalizing the flow of students between our universities could lead to exciting opportunities for collaborative research.
