Bando PhD "Discovering Diversity: Ethnic Minorities in the European Parliament"

The South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership in the UK is offering a fully-funded PhD studentship for a named research project about ethnic minorities in the European Parliament to be based at the University of Portsmouth. Students with an interest in any other topic related to the broad scheme of the “European Parliament, national parliaments, and transnational democracy” are welcome to apply under the open call. Students of any nationality are eligible. For further information about the named project, the application procedure, and the first supervisor Professor Wolfram Kaiser, see below. Discovering Diversity: Ethnic Minorities in the European Parliament (EDI_2324_16) Supervisors: Wolfram Kaiser, Nora Siklodi, Annabel Tremlett. Ethnic minorities are severely underrepresented in the European Parliament (EP) as a transnational democratic institution. This raises major issues about its institutional identity, representativeness, and policy-making. This project will explore EP policy-making on ethnic diversity and analyse the identity and work experience of people (both MEPs and staff) with an ethnic minority background. It will also address normative questions how the EP could improve its ethnic diversity to increase its legitimacy and the efficacy and inclusivity of its policy-making. The project will include an internship in the EP for data collection and work experience purposes. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact for further information as soon as possible.
