With Routledge as a partner, GEM-STONES will have the exceptional opportunity of having its own dedicated book series produced. The GEM Book Series will provide a scientifically recognised dissemination platform for its joint publications and give the GEM-STONES fellows a unique opportunity to be professionally published alongside established scholars.

Launched in 2013 under the stewardship of professor Mario Teló (ULB & LUISS), the GEM Series has so far already welcomed 9 volumes, thus rapidly established itself both as a reference for researchers as well as a useful graduate teaching tool. Authors having contributed to the series so far include both junior scholars as well as established academic figures - e.g. R. O. Keohane (Princeton), A. Acharya (America University), A. Gamble (Cambridge), C. Lequesne (IEP-Paris), C. Zhimin (Fudan), S. Bava (JNU), V. Schmidt (BU), T. Risse (FUB), L. Fawcette (Oxford).

The GEM Series edited volumes, monographs and textbooks all aim at contributing to further innovation in the fields of European Integration and International Studies. The quality of the included titles is guaranteed by the series double-blind review process as each submission is reviewed both internally as well as by an international referee process. Whereas an International Advisory Board with leading scholars from across all five continents provides the series with further input and guidance. Lastly, the GEM Series is committed to facilitating access to its publications, notably among graduate audiences, by ensuring all published volumes are made available not only as hardbacks but also as both paperbacks and e-books.

Estimated publication: Feb - May 2019

GEM-STONES Methods Textbook will be a book on research methodology, structured as an analytical dictionary to better correspond to the new reading habits of students and practices of research characterized by iterative returns rather than linear progression. The compilation will be steered by a scientific committee made up of equal numbers of GEM-STONES fellows and senior academic, with an eye on promoting learning and skills development of the doctoral students. 

Estimated publication: Dec 2018


GEM-STONES program includes targeted modules on transferable skills for highly qualified job-seekers. Lead by the Istituto Affari Internazionali and organised in collaboration with other non-academic partners and instructors, the skills modules will promote task-based learning and ultimately result in the publication of a qualified job-seekers manual.

Estimated publication: Feb 2020


The GEM-STONES researchers are encouraged to actively participate in international conferences, and be published in recognized journals.
