International Summer Schools & Calls for Papers

During the holidays, I have amassed quite a list of summer schools, stipends and CFPs. Follow the jump for more information on programmes by the EU, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and more...

* FLARE (Freedom Legality and Rights in Europe) is offering participation in a project promoting active citizenship and the use of new media in social activism in the EU. Main topics include organised
crime, legality, corruption and counter-information. After a two day introduction in Berlin in January, participants will undertake a trip to Southern Italy. (All costs will be covered by the EU.) Application deadline is 10 January 2011. For more information, please contact verena.zoppei [at]

* The European Consortium is currently looking for paper proposals for their next ECPR General Conference in Reykjavik (25-27 August 2011) on The Diffusion of Women’s Rights Norms in Post-War Contexts

* The Stiftung Deutsch Amerikanische Wissenschaftsbeziehungen (SDAW) would like to fund research groups composed of German and North American scholars, and, where appropriate, other European scholars, working on topics of "particular relevance to the transatlantic relationship". Closing date: 31 March 2011. More info here.

* For students and recent graduates: Humanity in Action is inviting applications from different countries  for their next set of summer schools. More information here. Deadline is early Feburary 2011, if I'm not mistaken.

* The Robert Bosch Stiftung is offering Lectureships for German Graduates at Universities in Eastern Europe and China. The programme is aimed at recent graduates from a multitude of backgrounds who speak German fluently. Application deadline is 28 February 2011.

* The University of Ulster, located in the northwest of Northern Ireland, is currently inviting applications for joint summer schools: One is on Peacebuilding and offered by their International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE),  the other is on Gender, Conflict and Transition and offered by the school's Transitional Justice Institute. Unfortunately, these aren't free but cost £500 pounds per individual.(excluding accommodation for another £127 pounds or so).
