Promotionskolleg “EUCACIS”

“The EU, Central Asia and the Caucasus in the Inter­na­tional System” (EUCACIS) is a PhD Support Programme for Postgra­duates and Doctoral Resear­chers in Central Asia and the Southern Caucasus, organized by the Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP) and the Centre inter­na­tional de formation européenne (CIFE). Funded by the Volks­wagen Foundation and the programme Erasmus+, it offers schol­ar­ships for three years to excellent postgra­duates who are working on a doctoral thesis in political science, contem­porary history or economics on a topic related to its thematic focus at a university or academy of sciences in the Southern Caucasus or Central Asia (including Afgha­nistan, the Kashmir region in India and the autonomous region Xinjiang in China).

It is the objective of the EUCACIS programme to provide intensive PhD research training for its parti­ci­pants to bring them closer to inter­na­tional standards, to support them until they submit their doctoral theses, and to help them establish their own networks with other young resear­chers in the target regions and in Europe. This will be achieved through four inter­na­tional confe­rences (in Almaty, Berlin, Yerevan and Bishkek); four PhD schools in Berlin, Yerevan and Istanbul; two research training stays; and conti­nuous online coaching.

The language of instruction is English. More Infor­mation on www.eucacis.eu
