Following the Winter Academy co-organised with our organisation in December in Brussels, the IED (Institute of European Democrats – European Democrats’ think-tank) aims at involving young generations in its reflections, this call for papers is therefore specifically addressed to applicants who have not reached 35 years of age by the 31st of May 2016

Since its foundation, the main goal of the IED has been to promote an in-depth discussion on the core aspects of the European integration process while playing an active role in strengthening the confidence of European citizens and furthering their understanding in the European Institutions and common policies. With the current migration management’s crisis and the consequent debate on the Schengen acquis, the EU is facing a new challenge that will demand a more comprehensive approach. With a view to shed some light on this issue and better understand the solutions ahead, the Institute of European Democrats has decided to launch an external research project on “Migration, borders control and solidarity: is Schengen at risk?” and intends to award 10 grants for “Research Fellowships”.

The draft papers will be object of discussion at the event “Schengen at risk. Can we keep the freedom of movement?” in May 2016. Some researchers could be invited to attend the conference (the IED will cover the expenses). The final result will be published online on the website of the IED (www.iedonline.eu).

Eligibility criteria:

  • Master’s degree in the relevant field
  • Age limit of 35 years old by the 31st May 2016
  • Proven excellence in writing skills in English
