Opportunity: PhD workshop on the Eurozone Crisis

24 May 2013

A workshop on 13-14 June with PhD students from UCL, Yale and a select number of other universities, as well as some of the most important academic scholars currently working on the topic.


The European Institute is currently running a year-long project funded by the European Commission Representation in London on the Eurozone crisis and its implications for the democratic standards of the EU and its Member States.

As part of the series, we are offering PhD students the opportunity to discuss the topic with key scholars currently working on the topic, including Fritz Scharpf (Emeritus MPfG), Philippe van Parijs (Université Catholique de Louvain), Richard Bellamy (UCL European Institute), Kalypso Nicolaïdis (Oxford) and others.

 Interested?
  • Very limited spaces are still available for PhD students with relevant research interests.
  • Email us with a short outline of your work and background to apply. Deadline: 29 May 2013.
  • All costs will be covered.

The workshop will be followed by two public panel discussions with academics and political commentators.
