Una Europa Team invite all PhD Students and Researchers to take part in the First Una Europa Competition on Global Governance Research 2021 Research Awards.
This interdisciplinary competition is part of the Dialogues between Policy-makers and Academia initiative, promoted by Una Europa Seed Funding.
The initial phase of the competition consists of the development of an abstract. From all the proposals, the committee will select the five best abstracts, which must be defended at the 2-day seminar taking place in Madrid (Spain) in May 2021 (participants in the 2-day seminar will cover their own expenses). The final phase will consist of the development of a fully-fledged paper.
The following cash prizes will be awarded to the best and second-best research papers: first place (1.500 €) and second place (750 €).
All PhD students and Researchers from participating universities will be eligible for the First Una Europa Competition on Global Governance Research Award.
The competition is based on a “people-centered approach to global governance”, founded in the Sustainable Development Goals. The topics of the papers should address global governance regarding one or more of the following policy areas: Free Trade Agreements, trade policies, migration policies, value chains, climate change, cooperation politics, impact of global pandemics on the life of citizens or methodological approaches to investigate the mentioned and related issues. A focus on Europe, while non mandatory, is also very much welcome.
