Brexit in the Supreme Court: Your Questions Answered

The Supreme Court will be the centre of political attention this week when the government’s appeal of last month’s High Court ruling on the triggering of Article 50 is heard. Robert Hazell and Harmish Mehta offer an overview of what the case is about, the likely outcome and its implications for the Brexit timetable.

CFP: UCL faculty

5 October 2010

The European Institute offers an events support programme for UCL staff, for which we invite proposals.

The programme, a pilot during the first two years of its operation, aims to provide UCL staff with the opportunity to develop new collaborations within the university and beyond, broker new approaches to thinking and analysing Europe and the EU, and showcase the range of research being carried out at UCL.

We thus invite proposals for projects, usually if not exclusively event-based, which may or may not be related to the Institute’s annual theme – in 2010/11, “Europe and Islam”. They may be formulated in response to current affairs and topical developments relevant to Europe or the EU, or address long-standing, fundamental questions confronting Europe and its integration processes.

Funding of up to £1500 plus some administrative assistance is available to university faculty. The deadline for submission for proposals to take place in 2010-11 is 22 November 2010.

Please download the APPLICATION FORM here.

Selection Criteria

Projects will be selected by the Institute staff in consultation with the Institute’s Executive Committee. We will inform applicants of the result by the first week of December 2010.

We are looking to support in particular interdisciplinary projects that are convened by UCL staff from at least two departments, ideally two faculties.

Selection will be made on the basis of the following:

  •   The contribution to innovative research and debate on Europe and/or the EU
  •   Where applicable, evidence of the capacity to address publics beyond academia and/or create lasting outputs
  •   A disciplinary spread over all selected proposals
  •   A coherent programme
  •   A viable budget, ideally with additional sources of funding indicated.
