The Institute for Comparative Federalism is offering an internship within the LoGov-project.
Funded by the European Union's H2020 scheme and coordinated by the Institute for Comparative Federalism, the LoGov project's ambition is to provide solutions for local governments that address the challenges that come along with increasing urbanization and the depopulation of rural areas. 18 partners from six continents identify, evaluate, compare, and share innovative local government practices that cope with the impact of changing urban-rural relations (www.logov-rise.eu).
The person we are looking for will assist the project team with the evaluation of specific local government practices, for which we will conduct expert interviews with local government officials, academics, and stakeholders. He or she will furthermore support the communication team with social media and the project website.
The Institute for Comparative Federalism carries out comparative studies and applied research on federal, regional, and local issues. The researchers perform comparative and problem-solving oriented research throughout Europe and on a global scale, from both legal and political science perspectives.
