Federal Scholar

Since 2013, the Institute for Comparative Federalism welcomes a Federal Scholar in Residence in order to enhance the comparative study of federalism and regionalism by providing an opportunity for exchange among scholars in the field and to thereby inspire and develop new project ideas. The winner of each is granted a research stay of up to three weeks at Eurac Research in Bolzano/Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy and gets the opportunity to discuss and present their research on issues related to comparative federalism, regionalism and/or intergovernmental relations with international experts in the field.
