During the Easter break our team undertook a visit funded by Arqus in the course of a Twinning Activity to the University of Padova.
We were welcomed by our new partner, Prof. Elena Pariotti, head of the Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies and took the first step into our new co-operation. We hope this visit was only the first of many visits and will lead to a long-lasting partnership between our research centre and Prof. Pariotti's department.
During the course of a week we met with different professors of Prof. Pariotti's department and herself to discuss possible joint projects in the future, involving both teaching and research. PhD students from the International PhD Programme "Human Rights, Society, and Multi-Level Governance" of the University of Padova spend an afternoon discussing with us their research projects and the PhD life in general. As well, during our writing workshops, we were joint by both PhD and Master students alike.
All in all, it was a very fruitful and successful week in Padova. We are very pleased that we were able to undertake this visit through the Arqus Alliance's funding.
