>From: RTN - Women in European Universities <eu.network at uni-muenster.de>
>Call for Papers
>ECPR Workshop in Edinburgh
>28th March to 2nd April 2003
>Long and winding roads?
>Career patterns in European Higher Education
>At the beginning of the 21st century systems of higher education are
>challenged by the globalisation of knowledge production and the
>expansion of highly qualified labour in industrialised societies. The
>future of European universities depends on their ability to organize the
>working processes – teaching, research and service - more
>The intention of the workshop is to connect two different aspects – the
>structure and policies of higher education systems and their
>implications on the academic career tracks – and evaluate them in a
>European comparative perspective. Against this background, we would like
>to address the national as well as the institutional level. We are
>interested in participants who focus at least on one of the following
>- How and to what extent do national higher education policies shape the
>working conditions and career patterns in academia? How do national
>higher education policies affect the gender gap in academia?
>- How do higher education institutions use their organisational scopes
>to constitute career support for their academic staff? What policies and
>programs do they implement (e.g. affirmative action programs, graduate
>training) and how successful are those measures?
>- How do academics deal with their national career perspectives in
>higher education? Do working conditions and career perspectives on the
>one hand correlate with the international mobility of researchers on the
>other hand? Under which circumstances does academic staff drop-out from
>a career in sciences?
>The deadline for submissions is 1st December 2002. Those whose abstracts
>are accepted for the workshop will be notified by 25th January 2003.
>The final version of the accepted papers must be send to the organizers
>latest on 8th March 2003 (max. 15 pages with 1,5 space).
