Informal PhD group on DI

Dear members of the Research Network,  

I am approaching you to share an idea of interest to PhD Candidates and their supervisors.

Tobias Hofelich (University of Adger) and I, Alexander Schilin (Leiden University), propose establishing an informal group gathering PhDs who conduct research on topics related to differentiated integration in the EU. We aim to organise regular (virtual) meetings where members can share and discuss paper drafts, dissertation chapters, research proposals or just some first ideas for a project. Furthermore, this group can provide venues to network or develop ideas for joint projects. PhDs of any stage, whether early or advanced, are welcome to join our group.

Exactly which form the group and its meetings will take will be answered in consultation with all members once the group has formed.

Would you like to be involved in such a group, or do you know of PhDs who would be interested?

Please reach out to either Tobias ( or me ( to express your interest or send us the contacts of potentially interested PhDs. You are so welcome to forward this mail to people outside our research network.

Tobias and I are looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best,

Alex (also on behalf of Tobias)
