The ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius requests applications for 6-8 Ph.D. Scholarships in migration studies.
The Bucerius Ph.D. scholarship program in migration studies “Settling Into Motion” offers up to eight scholarships for Ph.D. theses addressing migration in changing societies. For 2011, research applications on “Migration, Citizenship and Human Rights” are especially welcome. Qualified Ph.D. students of – in a broad sense – social sciences can apply until 24 February 2011.
Please find further information as well as the online application on the program’s website: www.settling-into-motion.de
For 2011, research applications on “Migration, Citizenship and Human Rights” are especially welcome.
International migration and universal human rights intersect not only in destination countries but also in the countries of origin and transit. Migrants’ rights are protected under international law and affect the formulation of the national migration policies. The growing human rights discourse at the international level adds a political dimension to the on-going debates about the economic, social and cultural impact of migration.
Ph.D. students dealing with these broad issues in different regions of the world are invited to apply for a scholarship. We encourage the following topics, but will also consider other approaches:
- Citizenship traditions and regulations
- Intellectual history of human and universal rights
- Migration policies and their national and local enforcement
- Impact of international institutions on citizenship policies
- Impact of identity politics on citizenship
