 Focus 2014: A New Social Contract? Reshaping State and Society

  

Programme

Numerous countries in Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East as well as Central Asia experience increasing social conflicts and economic problems. In the recent years, mass protests have questioned the non-democratic regimes and revealed their inability to fulfil the promise of stability. Tensions between democratization efforts and the persistence of authoritarianism polarize societies, deepen the economic crisis and frequently result in on-going violence accompanied by significant flows of refugees and migrants.

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 humanities and social sciences, and supports both empirical research and projects centered on theoretical reflection. For 2014, applications dealing with the changing relations between states and societies are especially welcome. Innovative research questions and comparative approaches are highly encouraged.
