Training through Research

Video: Members of the GEM-STONES academic community share some of their impressions of the training provided through research.






Key Concepts in Research Methods will be a texbook targeting undergraduates and postgraduate students in social sciences. The book is to be organised as an encyclopaedia, with 67 entries presented in alphabetical order. The compilation will be steered by a scientific committee made up of equal numbers of GEM-STONES fellows and senior academics, with an eye on promoting learning and skills development of the doctoral students. 

Editors:  Jean-Frédéric Morin (Université Laval, GEM-STONES Supervisor)

               Christian Olsson (Université libre de Bruxelles)

               Ece Özlem Atikcan (University of Warwick)


Estimated publication: December 2018

GEM-STONES Edited volumes

Each of the four Works Packages will jointly produce one Edited Volume collecting contributions from the linked 3-4 ESRs and their supervisors. The Edited Volumes will be published as part of the GEM Book Series (Routledge).

[Please Note] We have launched a Call for Proposals looking for contributions that will investigate a particular area or policy in interregional relations, and inductively look at the unintended consequences of these relations. Selected applicants will be invited to join both a closed workshop hosted by the University of Hamburg in February 2018, and to contribute to the subsequent edited volume. More information here.



The fellows are encouraged to promote both their joint and individual research efforts on scientific platforms beyond the immediate GEM-STONES’s framework. To this end, a limited amount of funds has been reserved for bottom-up student-led initiatives.

These initiatives can include for example participation in, and organisation of scientific workshops, or organisation of panels in international conferences.

This project receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No 722826.
