Start date: Sep 1, 2014,
End date: Aug 31, 2017
The goal of the ANTERO Jean Monnet Network is to strengthen the interaction between cutting edge research in the field of EU foreign policy and the translation of that research through innovative, research-led teaching. This will include the production of open access research and teaching material which can be easily integrated to the teaching of undergraduate and graduate students world-wide and which will contribute to the professional development of early-career academic professionals and a strengthening of EU studies in this field.The network will first directly impact on strengthening EU studies in the specific sub-fields of political science and international relations. The broad international dissemination of guest lectures, construction and distribution of regularly updated specialist reading lists, syllabus teaching units, a teaching handbook on EU Crisis Simulation gaming, and ‘how-to’ guides to teaching innovation will all serve to improve access and raise the profile of teaching EU foreign policy Second, the network will assist in the development of early career scholars, offering unique added value through opportunities for professional networking, the research buddy system, high profile outlets for working papers, blog posts, book reviews and participation in several research publication proposals. All of this will be showcased on the dedicated web platform of http://www.eufp.eu and via the leading European-based academic association for EU-studies (UACES). Third, this network offers direct added value to 100s of graduate and undergraduate students at the participating institutions. In terms of pod casted lectures, annual paper awards and engagement in the proposed EU Crisis Simulation game, students will profit from the collective research and teaching efforts of experienced leading scholars in the field, the enthusiasm and innovation of early career scholars and the contribution of educational technologists and learning specialists.
