Bourse doctorale * Transnational and Regional Dynamics * 31 juillet 2018

5e appel à financement doctoral de la fondation de la Zeit (Allemagne) dans le cadre du programme “Trajectories of Change” (Ph.D. Scholarships in Humanities and Social Sciences).

Call for Applications : “Trajectories of Change”, Ph.D. Scholarships in Humanities and Social Sciences. Focus 2018: Transnational and Regional Dynamics.


Europe’s neighbourhood has experienced armed conflict, political transition and authoritarian restoration along with profound social and economic change. These transformation processes with deep historical roots have usually resulted from an interplay of domestic and transnational actors and factors. In order to reveal their complexity, a view through a transnational and regional lens can be rewarding: Which interdependences – past and present – are constitutive for the neighbouring regions of the European Union? How can we study transnational influences and effects on change in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the MENA region? How to distinguish and take into account factors of change across national borders and social boundaries? To which extent do these factors shape political, social and economic realities in these regions?

The scholarship programme “Trajectories of Change” addresses historical and current transformation processes in the European neighbourhood. It offers stipends and fieldwork grants for Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences. For 2018, research applications dealing with transnational and regional dynamics of transformation are especially welcome.
