Extended Deadline for First Training School on Non-Territorial Autonomy
The First Training School on Non-Territorial Autonomy will take place in Flensburg and Sønderborg on 9-11 September 2020 (3 working days). The School is hosted by the University of Southern Denmark, Department of Political Science and Public Management in partnership with Europa-Universität Flensburg, and the ECMI. The application deadline has been extended to 5 July 2020.
The Training school will introduce the trainees to the state-of-the-art theories and practices of non-territorial autonomy (NTA) as a way of accommodating minority rights in plurinational settings. They will learn through lectures, practical classes, group work and discussion workshops about different NTA mechanisms and policies across Europe.
The duration of this training school is three working days. Grants will be provided for up to 20 accepted participants as a contribution to their travel costs (up to 400€), as well as to their accommodation (4 nights) and subsistence costs (up to 430€ in total). There are no registration fees. Researchers at different ranks are eligible to apply to the training school, including graduate and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and young career investigators. Researchers from any branch of social sciences, law and the humanities are welcome to apply, provided that they have an interest in the theories and practices of non-territorial autonomy and minority issues.
The School is organized by ENTAN - a COST Action aiming to examine comparatively and comprehensively the concept of non-territorial autonomy (NTA), in particular NTA arrangements for reducing inter-ethnic tensions within a state and for accommodation of the needs of different communities while preventing the calls to separate statehood.
