This is a Call for Applications for the Graduate ENLIGTHEN - GEM Summer School (PhD, MA and Young Leaders) on "Socio-Economic Governance in the Crisis Aftermath". This Summer School is hosted by the European Trade Union Confederation and will take place at the International Auditorium Conference Center, Boulevard du Roi Albert II, No. 5/2 in 1210 Brussels.
UNU-CRIS is one of the partners of this Summer School.


This Summer School combines four aims:

  • Bringing into contact fledging academics and young leaders from the non-academic realms;
  • Letting the participants learn from the expertise and insights of leading policymakers, stakeholders and academics
  • Allowing the PhD student participants to receive feedback on their work from other academic participants
  • Offering policy-oriented participants skills-focused training and, through a simulation game, active knowledge about issues central to the summer school themes.

Selected Ph.D. Students will be expected to present the suggested paper after having circulated it at least one week in advance. Both an attending academic and a fellow student will discuss the presented research. They are expected to attend the entire week and participate at all the Summer School's various sessions and activities. Applicants are free to suggest any presentation topic of their choosing which fits the broad scientific agenda of the Summer School.
