Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD scholarship that
focuses on issues of European integration for the Nordic countries. The Phd
Scholarship will be in the field of social and political sciences. The PhD
scholarship is part of the Nordforsk-financed ‘Reimagning Norden in an
Evolving World’ (ReNEW) research excellence hub, which focuses on research
about the Nordic region.

The PhD will be affiliated with the Comparative European and Public Policy
group at the Department of International Economics, Government and
Business. The research group engages in research activities that consider
the following disciplinary fields and sub-fields: Comparative public
policy, EU public policy, public management, comparative politics,
comparative welfare state analysis and positive political economy. The
group´s research work often serves as a point of reference for think-tanks,
policymakers, business organizations and the media.

This Phd call seeks applicants in social and/or political science, which
focus on one or several challenge(s) of European Integration for the Nordic
countries. Major challenges, such as third country migration and the
Eurozone crisis, have strained cooperation among the countries of the
European Union. The political response to the Eurozone crisis and austerity
policy in the South has been an increase of far-left parties, while the
Nordic EU countries have seen a strengthening of nationalist right-wing
parties. The nationalist right-wing parties in the Nordics are skeptical to
migration, but also to further European integration in various areas of
public policy, especially those implying re-distribution. The free movement
of labour, a cornerstone of European integration, is questioned
increasingly, despite evidence that EU labour migration contributes
positively to the economies of the host countries. This context calls for
research that analyses one of these or other major challenges of European
integration for and/or in the Nordic countries. Preference is given to
projects that use qualitative methodology, if possible including
comparative analysis. Various types of qualitative methods may be used.
