Call for Applications: Research welcomes applications for its 2017 Pre-Conference PhD Workshop. Participants will receive extensive and constructive feedback on their own research in progress. For more information, please view the full Call for Applications.
The CES research network on European integration and the Global Political Economy organizes regular doctoral workshops with the aim of raising the profile of early career scholarly work within the network, offering those researchers opportunities of exchange on themes within the remit of the network, and providing them with high quality feedback of more senior peers within the network. Depending on our ability to secure logistical support sur-place, the workshops take place either as pre-conference events directly attached to the main annual CES conference, or at other host institutions. So far, we ran successful pre-conference workshops in Amsterdam (2013) and Paris (2015). We look forward to welcoming you to one of our future events!
Call for Members:
In June 2011, the CES launched a new network on European Integration & the Global Political Economy, which already has over 60 members. The network has a dual focus: It analyzes the extent to which the EU impacts on-going reform dynamics in a global post-crisis context, focusing on the ideational and strategic influence of the EU on key actors, and how they impact countries with differing institutional legacies and contexts. It also focuses on governance and decision-making through the Lisbon Treaty in a broad range of policy areas, and how these relate to issues of popular legitimacy and contestation in the EU and beyond.
Annual Paper Prize for Early Career Scholars
The CES research network on European integration and the Global Political Economy has initiated an annual paper prize competition, in collaboration with the journal Comparative European Politics, in 2012. This is an opportunity specifically for scholars in early stages of their career to support publication of excellent work, while also seeking to expand synergies between the CES annual conference, our network's doctoral workshop and our membership. The winning paper of each preceeding year is announced during the network luncheon at the main conference and, following potential revisions, will be published in Comparative European Politics. The winner in 2012 was Mathis Heinrich (Lancaster University), Lucia Pradella in 2013 (University of Venice), Visnja Vukov in 2014 (EUI), and Michael Schwan (University of Cologne) in 2016. Congratulations!
