November 2018


Dear Friends of the Hertie School,

I am pleased to announce that the German Research Foundation will fund The Dynamics of Demography, Democratic Processes and Public Policies (DYNAMICS), a graduate programme we are offering with the Humboldt-Universität from Fall 2019. The programme will receive 3.3 million euros over four and a half years. 

On 5 December we are hosting an international symposium in honour of Christian Joerges. The symposium an opportunity to celebrate Professor Joerges' illustrious career and the many invaluable contributions he has made to the school.

The Jacques Delors Institute Berlin, Centre for European Affairs and the Centre for International Security Policy are each accepting applications for two stipends for full-time PhD studies starting in Fall 2019. Successful applicants will be fully integrated in these Centres of Competence and be part of the Berlin Graduate School for Global and Transregional Studies (BGTS).
