Titre : the Philippines as a Transnational Hub : Exchanges Between the Philippines and the EU

The workshop “The Philippines as a Transnational Hub : Exchanges Between the Philippines and the EU” aims to explore the deepening ties between the Philippines and the international community, especially the European Union, and the future of human, cultural, scientific and capital exchanges between both sides. Employing a transnational and multi-disciplinary approach, the workshop will bring together both leading and young scholars and experts on Philippine Studies as well as on Philippine-EU relations.

The workshop is comprised of panels on (1) state policies and international relations ; (2) migration and mobility ; (3) labour and human development ; and (4) (ex)changes in culture, identities and natural science. The panel on migration and mobility will tackle research insights, Filipino diaspora in Europe and will also include a session devoted to an open discussion among Ph.D. students’ research on Philippine-EU relations/Philippine studies and possible networking opportunities.

Hence, this call is open to EU-based PhD students who are interested to participate in the "student caucus" to share their research areas and interests, challenges and prospects. Each student will be given 10 minutes to present their doctoral research.

Researchers with existing work on the themes presented above are also invited to present.

Interested participants may register & submit their one-page presentation outline via until 15 September 2019.
