Governing for Sustainable Rural Futures: Summer School

June 21 – July 6, 2012

For those interested in learning more about rural policy and forming networks, consider participating in the ICRPS summer school in Québec in the summer of 2012. The annual summer school, which will be held in Québec this year, brings together an international, multi-disciplinary group of faculty, students, and professionals to study the many facets of rural policy. The goal of this school is to provide graduate students, researchers, and rural development experts from around the world an opportunity to exchange insights and knowledge regarding rural and northern policy using a comparative perspective.
