Assignments and Instructions


Participants are obliged to give a workshop presentation and to prepare a paper in advance on research related to the central theme of the course. The participants will be asked to send in proposals for papers and workshop presentations. The proposals have to be related to the central theme of the course. Participants can for instance choose (or combine) different angles to approach the central theme of the course. Such as:

  • identifying, describing and analyzing new or changing forms of social exclusion on a local, national, regional or European level (and showing the European dimension of it)
  • focusing on and evaluating ways to address (intervention, public policy) forms of exclusion (and how relations with other countries and the EU influence the-se)
  • focusing specifically on the possibilities and limitations to address these issues on a European level or by the EU (using soft or hard power)
  • Et cetera

During the months preceding the course there will be assistance through information on this website and by e-mail. The final papers will be published on this website after the course. Furthermore the participants are expected to write a short summary of their own presentation and a short report on one of the other presentations. The summaries will be part of the hard copy and the e-version of the final report of the course.
