Does Eastern Europe have lessons for Brexit Britain?

What, if anything, can the experience of (research on) Eastern Europe say to us as we head towards Brexit? Lessons may lie above all in getting to grips with the tempo and nature of political change, its (un)predictability and likely channels.

Hollande's response to the Nice massacre will please only the far right

On Thursday night, for the third time since January 2015, President François Hollande was faced with a mass murder on French soil. An ashen-faced Hollande, almost looking like a broken man, appeared on television on Friday at 4am and declared: “This is undoubtedly a terrorist attack; the whole of France is under the threat of an Islamic terrorist attack”.

Roman oratory and the EU referendum campaigns

In addition to marking a politically decisive moment in British history, the campaigns in advance of the referendum on the UK’s membership in the EU were exciting objects of study for Classicists in terms of the political use of oratory.

Call for Proposals Out Now

26 September 2013

We are pleased to announce this year's grant schemes for UCL faculty and research students. Deadline: 18/10/2013.


CfP (faculty): Small Grants Scheme, 2013-14



The UCL European Institute invites applications from UCL staff to its Small Grants Scheme, which funds projects that lead to or support collaborative research-based projects on Europe or the European Union. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions and are ideally relevant to one of the Institute’s six themes. Proposals based on the collaboration between staff based in different UCL departments are particularly encouraged.

We particularly invite proposals that aim to either (or both):

  1. achieve research impact (through scholarly output, public engagement, influence on policy and practice, knowledge transfer or similar)
  2. prepare the ground for extended research projects (including grant applications).

Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • hosting a research conference, a seminar, workshop, or symposium, where possible with a public element
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions
  • costs associated with a specific project, e.g. research assistant time (UCL HEFCE staff costs/salaries are not eligible)
  • costs associated with a pilot study or the preparation of an application for the funding of a major research project

Highlights of past projects funded under the Small Grants Scheme.

Please return the completed form by 18 October 2013 to european.institute@ucl.ac.uk.

 

Call for Proposals (students): Junior Researchers Forum 2013-14



The UCL European Institute invites applications to its yearly funding scheme for groups of MA, PhD and/or post-doctoral students, who wish to explore common research interests related to Europe or the European Union, aim to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of their research.

Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions and are ideally relevant to one of the Institute’s six themes. Proposals, which count with lead applicants from at least two different departments at UCL, will be given priority.

Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • organising a research conference, a seminar series, workshop(s), or a public panel discussion
  • convening a reading or discussion group
  • costs associated with working groups leading to written research output (publication, working paper, report)
  • costs associated with research activity (e.g. travel, interviews) leading to an event, feeding into a reading/discussion group or resulting in a co-authored publication
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions

Highlights of past projects funded under the Junior Research Forum Scheme.
