In a number of event formats, the CRC "Global Dynamics of Social Policy" presents and discusses new findings in social policy research. Usually these events are public.
The internal events of CRC 1342 are aimed to facilitate the exchange between the participating researchers and to promote their work on the research questions of their projects. Occasionally we report on the results of these internal events on the page "News".

1. Webcast of ca. 3 hours, which can be streamed by every participant during the period 6.7. - 20.07.2020.
The advanced PhD and early postdoc years are essential for academic career development. During this period, scientists are often torn between conflicting priorities of intellectual independence, on the one hand, and meeting professional obligations towards their employers, on the other hand. Researchers are expected to develop an independent publication record, apply for external funding, create a distinct research profile, build a teaching portfolio, communicate their research, build a network, undertake research stays abroad, etc. etc. Which of these tasks are particularly important? What are the top priorities?
How important is the habilitation? Which time frame is appropriate and compatible with my personal private priorities? The webcast informs about all important requirements (also beyond publications and funding) and milestones for an academic career. Furthermore, the participants will get tips and advice both on prioritising these requirements and on strategic considerations during the PhD and postdoc phase on the way to a professorship.

2. Accompanying materials like handout, questionnaire for analysing the participants' current academic profile, example CVs will be provided. 

3. (Video) face-to face meeting of approx. 45 minutes for each participant, individually with the trainer.

12th International NordWel Summer School in Lund

Lund University; Sonderforschungsbereich 1342 "Globale Entwicklungsdynamiken von Sozialpolitik", Universität Bremen

9 am - 5 pm

This year’s International NordWel Summer School will take place in Lund, Sweden from August 24 to August 28, 2020 and has been co-organized by the CRC 1342. Deadline for the submission of abstracts is at the end of March 2020.

The aim of the Nordwel Summer School is to stimulate discussion across disciplines and to foster innovative cross-disciplinary research on the development of welfare states over time and in a global context. The summer school brings together PhD students and established international scholars in scholarly exchange. PhD students from different disciplinary backgrounds are invited to participate in discussions on the development of welfare states, their preconditions, present status, and how we ought to study them.

The summer school is a joint venture of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University, Collaborative Research Center 1342 (CRC1342) “Global Dynamics of Social Policy”, University of Bremen, the Danish Centre of Welfare Studies (University of Southern Denmark), and the Faculty of Social Sciences at University of Helsinki.

Daniel Béland (McGill University), Ann-Zofie Duvander (Stockholm University), Jane Gingrich (University of Oxford), Pauli Kettunen (University of Helsinki), Johannes Lindvall (Lund University), Åsa Lundqvist (Lund University), Pirjo Markkola (Tampere University), Herbert Obinger (University of Bremen), Klaus Petersen (University of Southern Denmark), and Axel West Pedersen (Oslo Metropolitan University)have already confirmed their participation for either keynote lectures or as discussants or both.
