Regular workshops:

PDJ organizes two regular workshops each year (Spring & Autumn) with both internal members and invited speakers. The workshops are thematically organized, and operate with a principle of pre-circulated papers, and plenty of time for discussion. In 2016-2020, the PDJ workshops have typically been organized in connection to the ‘Globalizing Minority Rights’ workshops, with participants of both workshops being invited to join both events.
