Call for Applications re:constitution Fellowships 2021/22

Call for Applications re:constitution Fellowships 2021/22

[Translate to Englisch:] [Translate to Englisch:]

Forum Transregionale Studien invites applications for 20 Fellowships as part of the re:constitution programme for the upcoming academic year from October 2021 to July 2022.

The re:constitution Fellows pursue their own topical projects on current developments and challenges regarding democracy and the rule of law in Europe. As one of the common values of all EU Member States, the rule of law has come under pressure in recent years, and the ways and means of upholding it have become much-discussed political, legal and social issues. By addressing these developments in their projects and debates, the re:constitution Fellows will participate in this European discourse and become part of a European exchange network of scholars and practitioners.

Please find the Call for Application here.

Application Deadline: 6 April 2021, 12 Noon CEST.

If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ or contact the programme coordination team: reconstitution@trafo-berlin.de

HOW TO APPLY

Please submit your application via our secure online application platform by 6 April 2021, 12 noon (CEST)

Applications by e-mail will not be considered!

The diversity of our society should also be reflected in the Fellowships. We therefore welcome applicants of all cultural and social backgrounds, ages, religions, world views, disabilities or sexual identities. The applications will be evaluated by the members of the re:constitution Collegium. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of the evaluation process by the end of June.

The working language of re:constitution is English.

We are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely. In the interest of the health and safety of our Fellows and to comply with government regulations, we have introduced more flexibility into the programme. Remote and digital exchanges have replaced in-person meetings for now. Nevertheless, we will go ahead with the Fellowships as announced in this call.

Here you can find more information about previous Fellows and the programme itself.

Enjeux climatiques et environnementaux – A la FDCA, un nouveau pôle de recherche les abordera sous l’angle du droit, des politiques publiques et de la criminalité

Alors que le constat des atteintes au climat et à l’environnement est sans appel, on bute encore sur un écueil : comment agir, sur le plan du droit et des politiques publiques ? Les expert·e·s de la FDCA s’attellent à la tâche.

Le thème du climat agit comme un révélateur des limites planétaires et se trouve au carrefour de divers champs d’études interdisciplinaires, comme la durabilité, la préservation et la répartition des ressources, la santé, l’urbanisation, l’énergie, l’environnement ou les migrations. Pour chacun d’eux, se posent de multiples questions juridiques mais aussi de politique publique. Dans une société en mouvement face aux enjeux climatiques, les politiques publiques et le droit doivent opérer leur propre mutation afin d’apporter des réponses concrètes et adaptées aux besoins des autorités et de la population.

La Faculté de droit, des sciences criminelles et d’administration publique (FDCA) de l’Université de Lausanne (UNIL), par son interdisciplinarité et ses spécificités, est particulièrement bien positionnée pour mener des réflexions originales et développer des projets transversaux dans les domaines de l’environnement et du climat. La création du Pôle facultaire Environnement et Climat, le PEC, permet à la FDCA de regrouper ses nombreuses compétences en la matière.

Le PEC poursuit les objectifs suivants :

• Répondre aux demandes des collectivités publiques et de la société civile ;

• Se positionner comme une source d’analyses, de propositions et de pistes de réflexion innovantes dans le domaine climatique ;

• Susciter et accompagner des projets facultaires liés à des questions touchant aux enjeux environnementaux et climatiques ;

• Valoriser la recherche et les compétences, liées aux enjeux environnementaux et climatiques, des membres de la FDCA ;

• Servir d’interface entre les membres de la FDCA et d’autres acteurs, notamment, à l’UNIL, la Faculté des géosciences et de l’environnement (FGSE) et le Centre interdisciplinaire de durabilité (CID)

• Insérer la FDCA dans des réseaux suisses et internationaux.

Le PEC veut ouvrir de nouvelles réflexions quant aux droits fondamentaux, à la justiciabilité ou à la fiscalité et se profile donc sur des thèmes tels que le rôle de l’expertise dans la formation et la mise en œuvre des politiques environnementales et de protection du climat, la judiciarisation, les critères d’accès au juge en matière environnementale et climatique ou encore la gouvernance environnementale et climatique.

Le comité de pilotage du PEC est composé du Professeur Thierry Largey (président, Ecole de droit), de la Professeure Céline Weyermann (Ecole des sciences criminelles) et du Professeur Stéphane Nahrath (IDHEAP). Les expertes et experts de la FDCA associés au PEC sont répertoriés sur la page www.unil.ch/FDCA/PEC.

La FDCA se réjouit de participer avec le PEC, son Pôle facultaire Environnement et Climat, à la contribution de l’UNIL à la société en matière de durabilité.

The Henri Rieben Scholarship of the Foundation Jean Monnet is put in contest for the 11th consecutive year.

Amounting to 3,000 CHF net per month in addition to the reimbursement of expenses for the journey (place of residence – Lausanne – place of residence), the scholarship allows doctoral researchers from around the world to stay in the premises of the Foundation for a duration of one to three months.

Whatever the discipline of the researchers, their doctoral thesis will have to regard the history or the stakes of the European construction process, or else the relations between Switzerland and Europe.

The scholarships awarded each academic year encourage consultation and exploitation of the Foundation’s resources, such as the private archives of Jean Monnet, Robert Schuman (European papers), Robert Marjolin or those of Jacques Delors (1985-1995 period). As well as, recently, the archives of the Swiss diplomat Benedict de Tscharner and those of the European activist Franck Biancheri. The Foundation also possesses the resources of a media library, a European documentation centre and a rich specialised library. Fellows can also access the resources of the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law located close to the Foundation.

The grant holders selected will be based at the Dorigny Farm, headquarters of the Foundation, located on the Lausanne University Campus.
