Gëzim Krasniqi, Fellow at UCL’s School of Slavonic and East European Studies, traces the shifting routes chosen by refugees from Syria—and how the EU’s lack of a coordinated policy has been turning the Syrian tragedy into a European one. It has left the Balkan states with a refugee crisis impossible to master.

Through the stories of three generations in thirty families, Julia Brannen explores men's lives, migration, employment, fatherhood, father-son relationships and intergenerational transmission over the life course. As the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War unfolds across continents, she traces the stories of migrant generations that have gone before, of Irish grandfathers who left Ireland in the mid-20th century and Polish fathers who came to Britain in the 21st century, together with a group of white British

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:
- Take place, with the awarded funding spent, before 4 September 2015.
- Be led by senior researchers from UCL and France (i.e. established academics / senior research fellows).
- Be suitable for a minimum of 6-8 participants, including approx. 2-3 French participants.
- Be held over a 2-day period (for suggested format please see below).
- 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.
- Have the aim of building on existing, or establishing new, links between UCL and French academic and research organisations in the humanities, broadly conceived.
- Seek to establish new approaches for possible research collaborations, including those needing input from researchers from diverse disciplinary and methodological backgrounds.
