Three new grants for CES researchers!
We are proud to announce that we have recently been awarded three important grants from the European Commission: two prestigious, large-scale research projects in the scheme of Horizon2020 Research and Innovation Actions, as well as a Jean Monnet Networks grant to develop cooperation among international centres focusing on European Studies. A team of academics from the Institute of European Studies and Institute of Sociology, who are also lecturers at CES, will be involved in the three projects.
The research project “EU3D. EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy” (#EU3D) is led by prof. John Erik Fossum from ARENA Centre for European Studies, Oslo University and scholars from 10 partner academic institutions and think tanks (ARENA, Oslo University; Breugel Belgium; ELIAMEP Greece; Comenius University in Bratislava; Jagiellonian University Kraków, LUISS School of Governance Rome; Science Po Grenoble; University of Copenhagen; University of Konstanz and Oxford University). It will study the future of political integration in Europe. Professor Zdzisław Mach, dr Magdalena Góra, dr Joanna Orzechowska-Wacławska, dr Natasza Styczyńska, dr Przemysław Tacik, dr Marta Warat, dr Katarzyna Zielińska and dr Marcin Zubek from CES faculty will be engaged in this fascinating and timely research initiative.
The research project “Populist rebellion against modernity in 21st-century Eastern Europe: neo-traditionalism and neo-feudalism” (POPREBEL) is coordinated by prof. Jan Kubik and the University College London. The consortium members are our long-lasting partners in the region: Charles University in Prague, Corvinus University in Budapest, University of Belgrade and University of Tartu. The aim of this interdisciplinary project is to focus on explaining and contextualising the recent rise of populism in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) from a variety of perspectives: social, cultural, political and economic ones. The CES researchers in the POPREBEL projects are prof. Zdzisław Mach, dr Krzysztof Kowalski, dr Joanna Orzechowska-Wacławska, dr Łucja Piekarska-Duraj, dr Agnieszka Sadecka and dr Natasza Styczyńska.
