These fellowships - financed by the European Commission - enable outstanding academic researchers to obtain funding for their own independent research projects. The fellowships also seek to promote career development and skills acquisition so planned training must be addressed in the application alongside research objectives. If you are interested in pursuing a project in the field of law and society, that falls within the broad remit of research interests of fellows at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, feel free to contact Dr. Bettina Lange ( to discuss further your ideas for a proposal.
