The Europaeum promotes academic links and research collaboration between its partners. We facilitate research projects, conferences, lectures, joint teaching programmes and much more.
The successful scholarship scheme, which honours the former President of the European Commission and Chancellor of the University of Oxford, is linked to the Europaeum, which Roy Jenkins also helped to found in the 1990s to help academics, intellectuals and young scholars ‘bridge Europe’.
The new incoming Jenkins Scholars for this 2015-16 academic year are:
- Miss Belinda Yibai Li, from the University of Leiden, to study for a MPhil in Development Studies at St Antony’s College, Oxford.
- Mr Grzegorz Stec, from Jagiellonian University, to study for a MSc in Contemporary Chinese Studies at St Antony’s College, Oxford.
- Miss Emma Rimpilainen, from the University of Helsinki, to study for a MPhil Russian and East European Studies at St Antony’s College, Oxford.
Keynote speakers will be Dr Andrew Graham from Oxford and Professor Olli Rehn MEP, former Eyuro Commissioner who had responsiblity for stabilizing the eurozone. Ohter sessions will look at the narrative of crisis that has built up in the EU in recent years, and at the decline of relations with Russia which some dub the new cold war following the Georgia and Ukraine crises.
