The conference is open to both participants in the bEUcitizen research project and external scholars. They are particularly looking for disciplinary analyses and critical assessments from scholarly disciplines such as history, sociology, political science, law, philosophy and economics, as well as for interdisciplinary papers, combining two or more of the aforementioned disciplines.


The 10 best submissions based on abstracts of PhD students will receive a reimbursement of maximum 500€ for travel costs and hotel fees. PhD students who want to apply for this bursary need to indicate this in the form when submitting their abstract.
