Research assistant/doctoral fellowship (50%) in the field of Energy Governance; St. Gallen
Deadline: 15.11.2014

Zur Webseite des Angebots

Mehr Informationen

The intersection of energy and environmental protection has long shaped and been shaped by international politics and institutions. Understanding issues such as the (geo)politics of natural gas markets, effective policies for promoting renewable energies and international competition in the race for clean energy economies will be essential to anticipating and addressing the challenges of the energy transition. The energy transition is closely interlinked with the emergence of climate politics. Over the past two decades, the international community has been grappling with establishing effective national and international institutions to limit greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon markets. In addition, new governance mechanisms such as public-private partnerships have entered the arena, though their role and contribution remain to be examined. These developments raise critical questions as to the level of cooperation and competition in the governance of conventional and unconventional energy sources. In addition, it brings attention to issues of the effective governance of energy markets, including the design of policies for the deployment of renewable energies and carbon pricing. With Germany and Switzerland transforming their energy markets as part of the nuclear phase-out, many of these questions are directly relevant to ongoing political processes. Moreover, those countries are not immune to the geopolitical implications of changes in energy markets. The political geography and security of electrical grids, gas pipelines and sea lanes of transportation cannot be ignored by countries dependent on external sources of energy.

In the context of a series of publically funded projects, you will contribute to research activities and support the project team in organizational matters as well as in the communication of research findings.

In addition to your project-related work, you will be expected to pursue your own doctoral research in the area of global energy governance and politics and/or the role of Switzerland therein.

PhD project "The European Union as Crisis Manager:
An Institutional Perspective"; Leiden

Deadline: 01.12.2014

Zur Webseite des Angebots

Mehr Informationen

We live in a “global risk society” that challenges the traditional capacities of nation states to deal with a wide variety of adversity. Whether we speak of climate change, suicidal terrorism, cyber wars or terrifying epidemics, these crises increasingly outstrip the response capacity of national bureaucracies. Nation states must cooperate to build international crisis management capacity.

The European Union is increasingly becoming a platform for European states to accomplish such cooperation (Boin, Ekengren and Rhinard, 2013). The EU offers a wide variety of policies, mechanisms and institutions that can, and often do, facilitate a coordinated response of member states to both crises and disasters, emanating from within and outside the Union.

The wider project team of which this PhD will be part, analyzes the EU’s growing crisis and disaster management capacities. It assesses those capacities in light of the EU’s unique system of supranational governance. Moreover, it aims to identify institutional pathways towards the efficient and legitimate development of EU crisis management capacity.

The PhD position is a four-year AIO position within the Department of Political Science at Leiden University. The project will be supervised by Prof. dr. Arjen Boin. The project is financed jointly by the Swedish National Defence College and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency. the PhD candidate is expected to participate actively in joint activities with Swedish partners Dr Magnus Ekengren (Swedish National Defence College) and Dr Mark Rhinard (Stockholm University). The candidate is based in Leiden and expected to take on a modest teaching load there.

Research Associate - Shifting Economic Power and Global Governance; Sheffield
Deadline: 26.11.2014

Zur Webseite des Angebots

Mehr Informationen

One of SPERI's key research areas is the impact of shifting economic power within the current global order. Often, this is simplified as either the decline of the West or the rise of the BRICS. Neither phrase captures the full complexity of a process of change in the global political economy that is still unfolding and far from fully understood, but we know enough to know that something important is shifting in the seismic plates of the global order. At the same time the institutions and organising structures of global governance remain much as they were set up in the immediate post-1945 period. Some adjustments have been made over time and new bodies, such as the G20, have appeared on the scene. But, overall, global governance does not look as if it has yet caught up adequately with the new world it is supposed to be governing. A critical disjuncture exists which this research programme aims to explore further.

In an increasingly interdependent world, we also know also how important the global level of economic and political decision-making has become. Reformist or radical forms of political economy at the local and/or national level can be squeezed, sometimes almost out of existence, by unpropitious, unsupportive global conditions and pressures. Indeed, several analysts have identified reduced policy space for non-orthodox experiments and programmes of government as one of the characteristics of the rise and continuing dominance of neoliberalism in the global political economy. But, equally, at least in theory, global governance could perhaps work to give greater policy space to such projects of change. It is perhaps that we do not yet know what adjustments to global governance need to be made to facilitate greater pluralism in the practice of political economy around the world. For its part, the rise in economic strength of the BRICS does not seem as yet to have translated into a different mode of global governance. Old institutions continue to operate as if a Western world was still the sole or main source of power in the global order.

You will have a relevant PhD (or equivalent experience) and an excellent record of high quality publications. You will be expected to design a programme of research that explores important aspects of the agenda set out above. You will have previous doctoral experience of working on these kinds of issues. You will design and undertake a research project in conjunction with the Directors of SPERI and also work closely with the existing SPERI team, writing research and academic papers, but also policy interventions, debate pieces and blogs.

‘(Not) Made in Germany: Imagining Germany from the Outside’

Through this project – which will begin in January 2015 – the IGS will continue to consolidate and expand its role as a primary hub for the support and inspiration of German Studies in the UK as well as its reputation as a leading global research centre. Funding has been awarded by the DAAD to establish a high-profile academic network: (Not) Made in Germany: Imagining Germany from the Outside. This interdisciplinary research network will focus on views of Germany from abroad. Specifically, it will seek to analyse how images of contemporary Germany are constructed “from the outside” in the areas of economics, politics, education, history and culture. The network will bring staff and postgraduate students from German universities and the worldwide DAAD German Studies Centres to the IGS in a series of research visits focused around these five core strands.

Particular research questions to be addressed by the network include:

• To what extent do Germany’s self-perceptions of its political standing differ from the perceptions of Germany’s reputation, power and influence held by its European neighbours and the wider world?
• What roles do governments, the press, and museums outside Germany play in mediating and shaping processes of commemoration and of rethinking German history?
• What are the benefits of the ‘outsider’s’ perspective and what impact do these have on self-images and on policy-making decisions in Germany?

The project research assistant will write a PhD thesis on the topic of imagining Germany from the outside with a focus on one or more of the core research strands (economics, politics, education, history, and culture). S/he will be supervised by appropriate members of the core research group, depending on the precise focus of the research thesis, and s/he will also benefit from interaction and engagement with the international group of experts involved in the network.
