The heart of the matter: passion, politics and the EU referendum

Both Leave and Remain have appealed to voters’ guts to the extent that reason itself has become suspicious. Emotions will rule the day on 23 June, but at what cost?

The price of solidarity: is Brexit worth it?

A misunderstanding of history and of historical time has put European solidarity on the chopping block. Think carefully before allowing the axe to swing, pleads Jan Kubik, Director of the School of Slavonic & East European Studies at UCL.

Undecided on the referendum? These are the three questions to ask yourself in the voting booth

If there is one thing people can agree on as they prepare to vote on the UK’s EU membership: comprehensive, comprehensible and trustworthy information is in short supply. Every day, the quality of the debate sinks to a new low – yet the stakes are as high as ever. How, then, are you supposed to make your decision on June 23? What questions should you ask yourself when you enter the polling booth?

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.

For further information, please contact us.
