The Consortium for Comparative Research on Regional Integration and Social Cohesion (RISC) and the
United Nations University Center for Regional Integration Studies are proud to present their Summer
School/Research Symposium for Ph.D. candidates and Postdoctoral scholars on “Analyzing Regional Social
Cohesion: Theoretical and Methodological Training for Advanced Research” which will take place in
Luxembourg from 2-7 July, 2012. The initiative is free for up to 15 participants and the organizers will
cover the costs of accomodation (if necessary) and meals during the program. Attached to this message,
please find the call for applications which includes a detailed description of the
initiative, a preliminary list
of lecturers, and a detailed program.
The summer school/symposium is interdisciplinary with lecturers in political science, history, economics,
anthropology and geography. It focuses on social cohesion which is an interdisciplinary topic that is
prominent in IPSE’s research agenda. While the official language of the initiative is English, it will be an
excellent opportunity to meet young scholars from other parts of Europe and different world regions in a
cross-cultural and multilingual environment.
