MA and PhD agreement between ISS and Ecuadorean university
On 4 October 2019, Inge, Rector of the International Institute of Social Studies and Juan Ponce, Director of FLACSO Ecuador, signed an agreement to launch a collaborative PhD programme that will give a chance to PhD students to study and have supervision at both universities at the same time.
The double degree is an opportunity for Master students at FLACSO to spend 6 months of their second year at ISS, follow courses and have a joint ISS/FLACSO supervision of their thesis. Upon compilation of ISS and FLACSO academic requirements, the participants to the programme will be awarded a Masters degree from FLACSO and one from ISS.
Ecuador is a focus country for ISS and the institute looks for several ways to strengthen research and teaching collaborations.
