The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at University College Dublin is proud to invite PhD candidates conducting research aligned with the New Political Economy of Europe: Re-Engaging the Street project.

The 2020 Winter School will be held at the UCD campus on 15-16 January 2020. It will feature two days of seminars, lectures, and workshops focused on the Centre’s areas of research: democratic legitimacy, economic governance, and electoral politics and protest movements. It represents an opportunity for aspiring PhDs to share their research, receive meaningful feedback, introduce themselves to fellow academics and familiarize themselves with their work. We will provide up to €500 for successful applicants.

This event will be hosted by UCD’s School of Political Science and International Relations (SPIRe). Guest speakers include: Dorothee Bohle (Professor of Political Science at the European University Institute), Jonathan Hopkin (Associate Professor of Comparative Politics at the London School of Economics), and Manuela Moschella (Associate Professor of International Political Economy at the Scuola Normale Superiore) as well as UCD and Centre faculty: Aidan Regan (Assistant Professor, SPIRe), James Cross (Assistant Professor, SPIRe), Marie Moran (Assistant Professor, School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice) and Roland Erne (Jean Monnet Chair in European Integration and Employment Relations, School of Business).

Successful applications would address one of the Centre’s areas of interest and should include a paper/chapter + CV. Selected researchers will have their travel and lodging expenses covered. Applications are to be sent to Dr. Aidan Regan at by Thursday, 31 October, 2019.
