The Jean Monnet Project "Canada - Europe Dialogue on Migration: Cross-Border Mobility and the European Union Refugee Crisis" (CEDoM 2016-2019) brought together a multi-disciplinary expert group in the field of the governance of borders and migration. It promoted exchange between Canada and the EU in scholarly and broader public debates. A series of knowledge dissemination initiatives targeted public policy stakeholders and civil society organizations with the aim to expand the knowledge of European integration through the lens of migration and border studies in Canada.
This project was co-funded by the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Action of the European Union, Centre for Global Studies, University of Victoria and Borders in Globalization (BIG) project.
Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue (CETD)
CETD promoted research on relations between Canada and Europe (including the European Union) and on policy challenges of common concern to Europe and Canada. CETD fostered Canada-wide and trans-Atlantic research networks, as well as the dissemination of research findings to the Canadian policy community and to the public at large. Its aim was to enhance the quality of public discourse and encourage research-based assessments of diverse responses to pressing policy problems.
This project was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada under the Strategic Knowledge Cluster Program (2008-2016), as well as by participating universities, particularly Carleton University in Ottawa, where the project was housed at the Centre for European Studies (EU Centre of Excellence). CETD supported EUCAnet´s outreach activities and the searchable database of experts on Europe.CETD
Young Researchers Network
In 2004, the Young Researchers Network became an official entity within the European Community Studies Association-Canada (ECSA-C YRN). Since then, the YRN has held conferences and co-organized panels at the ECSA-C Biennial Meetings and has facilitated the integration of students’ paper presentations into the general conference panels. Currently, the ECSA-C YRN is expanding its activities in order to strengthen its capacity as a dynamic, innovative organization within the area of European studies in Canada. The network connects graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and other young researchers in the European studies field across Canada.
German Studies Canada
The online information platform for German and European Studies in Canada was developed to connect German Studies across Canada . The platform provided information tools and outreach initiatives for the German and European Studies Community in Canada and was instrumental for the development of EUCAnet . This project was partly funded by the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD and headed by the University of Victoria in collaboration with universities across Canada.
Additional sponsorship for the initiative is provided by Jaaxy, a tool which aides in researching the latest trends on German Studies within Canada.German Studies Canada
