**Applications closed on 1 June 2019**
The Peter McMullin Centre, together with the Statelessness Hallmark Research Initiative, is pleased to invite applications to the 2019 Doctoral Workshop on Statelessness & Citizenship. The workshop is the second of its kind, following the success of the inaugural workshop held at Tilburg University in October 2018. The Tilburg University workshop brought together almost twenty PhD candidates from around the world conducting research on statelessness from a variety of disciplines.
This is a fee-free workshop and will run over three days, from 20 – 22 November 2019. It is an opportunity for PhD students (and post-doctoral/early career researchers) researching statelessness and citizenship to workshop ideas, theoretical questions and academic challenges. University of Melbourne based academics and experts will be chosen to facilitate sessions according to the needs and interests of applicants. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a working paper two-weeks prior to the Workshop in order to fully benefit from feedback by facilitators, discussants and colleagues.
The workshop directly follows Melbourne Social Equity Institute’s Migration, Refugees and Statelessness Interdisciplinary Conference on 19 November 2019. Doctoral workshop applicants are encouraged to also attend the Conference and consider applying to present at the Conference.
Limited funding is available to contribute to travel costs for international applicants, please outline if a bursary is sought in the application. Preference will be given to students from less economically developed countries. All applicants are encouraged to seek their own funding sources as bursaries are unlikely to cover the full associated costs for visa, travel and accommodation.
Please download and complete the application form and return it by email to Deirdre Brennan by 1 June 2019.
Applicants will be informed of the success of their application by 14 June 2019 and asked to confirm their attendance by 21 June 2019.
