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

Junior Research Forum
Each year, we support a number of advanced research students – MA students, PhD candidates and postdoctoral fellows – to work together to explore common research interests related to Europe broadly conceived.
Call for 2014-2015
A new call for proposals for the academic year 2014-15 is out now.
We invite proposals from groups of at least two students, who aim to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of their research. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or address long-standing research questions. Collaboration between students based in different UCL departments is particularly encouraged. Funding of up to £1000 plus some administrative assistance is available per project.
Current Projects (2014-15)
Typical projects eligible for funding include:
- organising a research conference, a seminar series, workshop(s), or a public panel discussion
- convening a reading or discussion group
- costs associated with working groups leading to written research output (publication, working paper, report)
- costs associated with research activity (e.g. travel, interviews) leading to an event, feeding into a reading/discussion group or resulting in a co-authored publication
- public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions
