32 doctoral students from 14 countries will present and discuss their research projects at the Haus der Wissenschaft Bremen in the coming days. Julia Moses from the University of Sheffield gave the opening lecture on Monday.

On Monday afternoon, Herbert Obinger opened the 11th NordWel Summer School, which takes place at the Haus der Wissenschaft in Bremen and is hosted by CRC 1342. The Summer School brings together 32 doctoral students from 14 countries. They all do research on social policy issues and will present and discuss their work in smaller groups over the next five days. They will receive feedback from other doctoral students as well as from renowned scientists.

The opening lecture was given by Julia Moses, Reader at the Department of History of the University of Sheffield. She spoke about the development of family policy in Europe from the 18th to the 20th century, the aims and tools of which depended largely on the prevailing ideal of the family. The other keynotes will be given by Daniel Béland, Stephen Devereux, Patrick Emmenegger, Asa Lundqvist, Carina Schmitt and Reimut Zohlnhöfer.

The complete programme of the 11th NordWel Summer School can be found here.

The NordWel Summer School is a joint venture of the Collaborative Research Centre 1342 "Global Dynamics of Social Policy", the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS), the Danish Centre of Welfare Studies and the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Helsinki.
