Soaring renting prices, unmet limits to air pollution, decreasing public spaces, gentrification – living in bigger and medium ranged cities is often marked by a loss in quality of life. The management and design of sustainable cities is one of the major tasks amid the global climate emergency. Transforming European cities to deliver healthier and prosperous environments requires multiple solutions for energy, transport, food, and water. Will this be achievable as planned by the EU, in the up-coming 30 years? This panel invites doctoral researchers to present their work on the past, present, and future of urban governance in the EU and beyond.

Course Description: This course provides doctoral candidates with a foundation in the strategy literature. Drawing on strategy traditions that vary from positioning to dynamic capabilities, a primordial aim of the seminar will be to explain variation in firm and industry performance. Each session during the seminar is intended to expose doctoral candidates to the seminal literature on the topic with a view to encouraging them to write a research paper of publishable quality in peer review journals. Topics covered in the seminar include general areas such as the resource-based view of the firm, industry evolution and dynamics, strategy-related theories of the firm, and diversification and vertical integration. Given the relatively short nature of the course, we will not cover all areas of strategy, but participants are encouraged to develop further readings and exploration based on the literature covered in this seminar. Learning Outcomes: Participants will develop a thorough mastery of the seminal research literature strategy. This involves Evaluating the importance and validity of theory and empirical evidence in academic research on strategy Developing a comprehensive synthesis of the main intellectual traditions in the strategy literature Developing a thorough literature review of current research Applying relevant parts of the extant literature in their own ongoing research agendas Assessment: Six (6) Analytical Summaries (40% of grade) – each week, participants will be asked to prepare an analytical summary (3-5 pages) of the articles assigned as reading for that session. The summary will focus on the theme of the session rather than being a general critical analysis. These must be submitted before class starts. The instructor will provide preliminary feedback after the session and participants are expected to revise the summary and resubmit a week later for further feedback. Research Paper (empirical or theoretical) drawing on a theme in strategy (45% of grade) – You will be expected to write a research paper based around your current research on the doctoral program. You will be expected to draw on the literature covered in this seminar with a view to publication in a peer-reviewed journal. You will be expected to submit a draft paper for feedback from your instructors before re-submitting for grade. To get an ‘A’ grade, the paper will have to be accepted for presentation at a reputable, academic conference. Class Participation (15% of grade) – as this is a doctoral seminar, participants are expected to be fully engaged intellectually, attend all sessions, be prepared to constructively evaluate each other’s contributions and seek innovation in thinking. It’s a tall order, but it is a necessary expectation. Prerequisites: none Syllabus: https://courses.ceu.edu/sites/courses.ceu.hu/files/attachment/course/4116/strategyphdsyllabusspring2021.pdf

Policymakers, editors and business leaders tend to be pressed for time and receive too much information. Researchers who want their arguments to influence policy must learn how to communicate key messages clearly. The seminar will cover how to write concise and accessible texts. Participants will learn how to structure an argument and formulate recommendations. They will gain an understanding of different publication formats and develop publication strategies to maximise impact and reach the right audiences. This is a hands-on class. Participants will develop a style guide and practice how to recognise and avoid jargon. They will learn how to structure policy briefs and devise publication strategies and they will write their own op-eds and learn how to pitch to a news outlet. They will gain a better understanding of the cultural gap between policymakers and researchers, as well as the challenges facing researchers who strive for both impact and integrity. Target group: PhD researchers with little or no experience in writing policy briefs or op-eds. Instructors: Sophia Besch and Ellen Thalman. Dates and times: four half-day sessions (18 and 19 May 2021, 9 am – 1 pm and 2-6 pm)
Entry requirements: little or no experience in writing policy briefs or op-eds

The Centre for Fundamental Rights at the Hertie School is pleased to announce its Second Annual Workshop on Research Methods in Fundamental Rights, taking place online from 2-4 June 2021. The workshop is hosted by the Hertie School as a member of CIVICA - The European University of Social Sciences. The Workshop aims to provide doctoral and early-career legal researchers with opportunities to reflect on diverse research methods in human rights research. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to discuss these methods with renowned faculty, who will provide guidance and reflections on the methods they have applied in key pieces of their own research. Participants will also submit reflections on their own research questions and methods, and will receive individual feedback on their projects. We encourage applications from PhD and early-career legal researchers carrying out fundamental rights research employing any of the methodological approaches covered in the workshop. Participants will receive assigned readings and video-recorded presentations by Faculty in advance of the workshop, as well as guidance on the preparation of their own workshop presentations. Deadline for applications: 1 March 2021. Please submit your application by sending an email to fundamentalrights[at]hertie-school[dot]org with the subject line 'Research Methods in Fundamental Rights'. Applications should include one single pdf file, containing the following information: a CV, a letter of motivation, an outline of your research project, including your research question, research methodology and current stage of the research (2 pages); for PhD candidates: a letter of recommendation written by PhD supervisor. More information and links here: https://www.hertie-school.org/en/events/workshop-research-methods-in-fundamental-rights (Please note that you must apply via the above-mentioned email address, not via this course catalogue! This is only for information purposes.)

The Hertie School invites PhD researchers to participate in a workshop on European higher education in times of uncertainty. The virtual workshop is organised in cooperation with the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences. From geopolitical tensions, including Brexit, to attacks on academic freedom, as well as an unprecedented disruption to university learning and research through COVID-19, European higher education is currently facing a plethora of challenges. How have European universities responded to this period of uncertainty? What policies have been developed at national and supranational levels of governance in light of political and social developments? This PhD workshop provides an interdisciplinary platform for emerging scholars to share and discuss their research with peers and senior academics. The aim of the workshop is for PhD researchers to present their work in an encouraging environment. We welcome submissions of different theoretical and methodological approaches across social science disciplines. Deadline for applications: 15 April 2021. Please apply by submitting an abstract (300-500 words) and a CV to edu.gov.team[at]hertie-school[dot]org. Applications via the CIVICA course catalogue are not recommended. For all further information, topics and so forth, please visit this website: https://www.hertie-school.org/en/events/15-04-2021-international-phd-workshop
