Migration, the lightning rod of the EU referendum

The EU-Turkey deal should have no role in the Brexit debate, yet it brings the crucial question of the European Union and migration into focus at an inopportune time.

Unsettling times for a settled population? Polish perspectives on Brexit

Many Poles have lived, worked, and settled in the UK for up to 12 years now. Anne White, Professor of Polish Studies at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies, says it’s no longer so easy for them to pick up and leave.

Some thoughts on the psycho-geography of Europe’s free movement

Eastern European migration takes place in a very different context than it once did. Eva Hoffman, author and essayist, asks what drives people to leave, and what drives them back again? This piece is part of the UCL European Institute’s commissioning partnership with openDemocracy.

UCL-Institut Français Call for Proposals

1 April 2014

Under a new 3-year agreement, UCL and the Institut Français now invite UCL-based academics to apply for funds to organise collaborative workshops for the 2014-2015 academic year, involving participants from UCL and from research institutions in France.


In July 2013, UCL and the Institut Français signed an agreement to collaborate on a series of workshops over a period of three years, specifically focusing on research in the humanities, broadly conceived. The agreement aims to build on existing and explore new links between UCL and French academic and research organisations. By providing for three workshops between UCL and French academics per year, all held at UCL, the agreement is aimed at encouraging junior and senior scholars to establish new directions for possible research collaborations– not only in their own areas of expertise, but also across disciplines.

During the 2013-2014 academic year three highly successful workshops, organised by the UCL European Institute under the theme of ‘In Places(s) of Memory’, took place. UCL and the Institut Français now invite UCL-based academics to apply for funds to organise collaborative workshops for the 2014-2015 academic year involving participants from UCL and from research institutions in France.

A proposed workshop should:

  1. Take place, with the awarded funding spent, before 4 September 2015.
  2. Be led by senior researchers from UCL and France (i.e. established academics / senior research fellows).
  3. Be suitable for a minimum of 6-8 participants, including approx. 2-3 French participants.
  4. Be held over a 2-day period (for suggested format please see below).
  5. Be capable of being run at UCL’s facilities within the Workshop Budget (optimally around £2,500 per workshop). It is intended that the budget for a workshop will, in addition to covering the costs of dinner for the 6-8 participants on Day 1, and lunch and refreshment costs on Day 2 of the workshop, also support the travel, accommodation (one night) and subsistence costs of participants travelling from France.
  6. Have the aim of building on existing, or establishing new, links between UCL and French academic and research organisations in the humanities, broadly conceived.
  7. Seek to establish new approaches for possible research collaborations, including those needing input from researchers from diverse disciplinary and methodological backgrounds.
