The Democratic Disconnect

In the eurozone, the EU needs greater legitimacy at the national level not only to secure space for domestic politics but also to secure respect for social and economic commitments over time.

Europe: Six decades of strife and controversy for UK

It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

CREDOC Call for Proposals

28 April 2014

The Centre for Research on the Dynamics of Civilisation (CREDOC) invites applications under its first Small Grants Scheme for UCL staff and junior researchers. Deadline: 30 May 2014.


The Centre for Research on the Dynamics of Civilisation (CREDOC) seeks to understand the social phenomenon of 'civilisation' and to challenge the role it is being made to play in the modern world. ‘Civilisation’ describes a social phenomenon greater than the nation. It has been identified by materials, languages, institutions and habits that are spread over time yet remain linked to one another as an integrated system. Civilisation appears on the map of modern political debate, whether in international policy (where it is used to build transnational political structures) or in the popular idea of a 'clash of civilisations'. Yet what is a civilisation? How do civilisations form, develop, endure and decay? And why does civilisation matter so much to us now?

  • up to £3,000 available for research projects led by UCL staff
  • up to £1,000 available for research activity led by UCL junior researchers
  • support for projects that address the dynamics of civilisation
  • funding for activities undertaken within a year of the award and/or before end of tenure as student or staff at UCL

The application deadline is 30 May 2014.
