Five new Jenkins Scholars will start their academic studies at Europaeum-linked universities in September.
The 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 Jenkins Scholars for this 2011-12 academic year are:
Does the Lisbon Treaty raise more problems than it solves?
Daubeny Room, Magdalene College
11.00 – 12.30
Tuesday, 25th May
Does the long-heralded Lisbon Treaty pose fresh questions rather than solve older problems? Which way is Europe going? Is the European political class up to the job of embedding a new European citizenry? Is our triumvirate up to the job? What is the role for national leaders and presidents? Who leads Europe forward in this new Global era? Is Europe prepared for challenges from the East? Where is the Europe of our dreams?
Where are today's good Europeans ?

Which way is Europe going ? Where is the Europe of our dreams ? Has the long-heralded Lisbon Treaty posed fresh questions rather solving older problems ? Is the European political class up to the job of embedding a new European citizenry ? Who is there to lead Europe forward in the new Global order ? Who is helping Europe prepare for the great challenges from the East? Are our new triumvirate up to the job ? What is the new role for national leaders and presidents ?
Four new Jenkins Scholars have just started their studies at Europaeum universities - three awards at Oxford, and one award at Europaeum university. For full details see the attached press notice. In addition, one Oxford scholar denied access to Geneva, elected earlier, will be carrying out his studies this year. Two other elected scholars have not taken up their studies - one dropped out and another chose to take up an alternative scholarship award.
