Forum Transregionale Studien invites applications for 20 Fellowships as part of the re:constitution programme for the upcoming academic year from October 2021 to July 2022.
The re:constitution Fellows pursue their own topical projects on current developments and challenges regarding democracy and the rule of law in Europe. As one of the common values of all EU Member States, the rule of law has come under pressure in recent years, and the ways and means of upholding it have become much-discussed political, legal and social issues. By addressing these developments in their projects and debates, the re:constitution Fellows will participate in this European discourse and become part of a European exchange network of scholars and practitioners.
You are in the early stages of your career as a SCHOLAR holding a PhD* in — law/legal studies and/or
— political sciences, social sciences, philosophy or other neighbouring disciplines (focusing on legal issues and/or the rule of law in Europe), or a PRACTITIONER
— legal expert (i.e. judge or court employee, in NGOs),
— government official,
— researcher working on questions pertaining to the rule of law and/or democracy in the EU,
— journalist reporting on the rule of law and/or democracy in the EU. Residents of the European Union, non-EU EEA countries, Switzerland and the United Kingdom are eligible for the Fellowship. *Your PhD project should have been completed no more than 10 years ago. Scholars who are still working on their dissertation may be eligible if their PhD is close to completion. For practitioners, comparable work experience is expected, but a PhD is not required.
