“Trajectories of Change” addresses historical and current transformation processes in the European neighbourhood.

The programme offers stipends and fieldwork grants for Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences studying political and social change in Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East as well as Central Asia. The call for applications 2018 “Transnational and Regional Dynamics” encouraged research projects dealing with factors of political and social change across national borders. In this round the foundation awarded 20 scholarships and grants.

Europe’s neighbourhood has experienced armed conflict, political transition and authoritarian restoration along with profound social and economic change. These transformation processes with deep historical roots have usually resulted from an interplay of domestic and transnational actors and factors. Which interdependences – past and present – are constitutive for the neighbouring regions of the European Union? How can we study transnational influences and effects on change in their complexity?
