PhD Studentships

Institute of Governance, Public Policy and Social Research
Queen’s University Belfast

Applications for PhD studentships at the newly established
Institute of Governance, Public Policy and Social Research
(IGPPSR) are now invited. Six studentships are available, to
commence in either September 2002 or January 2003. Subject to
the nature of the received proposals, it is intended that three
of the studentships will be for projects with a clear
EU/European theme.

Studentships will cover a maintenance award of Ł8000 per annum,
plus tuition fees. It is intended that two studentships will be
available for researchers from outside the EU (subject to
receipt of suitable applications).

The IGPPSR draws on the disciplines of Politics, Law,
Sociology/Social Policy and European Studies (all rated 5 in RAE
2001). We also house a Social Survey Unit, and encourage
applications for projects using either qualitative or
quantitative methodologies. We are dedicated to the production
of research which has significance for policy makers.

Our primary research focus is on changes to the production,
content, delivery and style of public policy at all levels from
the local to the global.

Proposals should address one of the following research areas,
but projects on other aspects of governance – including
theoretical and normative issues – will be considered.
Preference may be given to proposals which are explicitly
interdisciplinary/multi-disciplinary in their orientation.

Research project areas include:
Partnership, Civil Society and New Forms of Governance
Modernisation, New Forms of Governance and the ‘Third Way’
Social Capital and Democratic Renewal
Global/Transnational Regulation
Human Rights and Equality
European Union Treaty Change
Globalisation, Europeanisation and Political Economy
Enlargement of the European Union
Constitutionalism and Citizenship in the European Union
Devolution and Regionalism in Europe
Comparative Governance

To make an application, please contact Gina Inglis
(G.Inglis@qub.ac.uk).

For further information, please contact the IGPPSR postgraduate
tutor, Dr Alex Warleigh (A.Warleigh@qub.ac.uk), or use the web

The deadline for receipt of applications is April 19 2002.
