Social Inclusion and Exclusion in a Changing Europe

University of Bremen, July 2-11, 2009

Centre for Social Policy Research (CeS) in cooperation with Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS)


The Summer School is targeted at PhD-students who have started, or are about to start, a project which is related to social inclusion and exclusion in Europe. Topics addressed are: contested paradigms of justice, (social) citizenship and migration, income distribution and poverty, shifting borders of financial and social policy, activation policies and risks of exclusion across different fields (i.e. employment, family, health and pensions). Students will learn and discuss causes of social exclusion, the production of exclusion/inclusion through institutional settings and the effects of social exclusion on individuals, groups and society, as well as policies of inclusion in comparative perspective.

The Summer School offers lectures with discussion, assignments and workshops given by European scholars from various disciplines such as sociology, social policy, political science, and economics. The programme will include a methods workshop on measuring social inclusion/exclusion. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present their personal PhD-project and to discuss it in smaller groups with other participants and scholars. Participants obtain 3 ECTS for the Summer School.

Applicants are kindly asked to submit (via e-mal attachment) a short description of their PhD-project (no more than 500 words), their CV and personal motivation to attend the summer school (no more than 500 words), inform about the year of their study, and include a letter of recommendation from their supervisor.

Please send your application to:
The deadline is April 15, 2009.

Students from RECWOWE partner universities are exempted from fees for the summer school but have to cover their travel costs.
