We are available for consulting activities and offer different training programmes to respond to the requests of our partners as well as to respond to the rising demand for transdisciplinary teaching modules aiming at to making participants acquainted with multi-tier government and governance.
The main requests are for the institute's expertise in comparative federalism, asymmetric regionalism, conflict resolution in multiethnic contexts, autonomy arrangements, financial relations and fiscal federalism, institutional innovation and participatory democracy, cross-border cooperation as well as environmental multilevel government and governance.
For the time being, we offer the following trainings:
Winter School on Federalism and Governance. In cooperation with the University of Innsbruck the Institute organizes yearly a two-week postgraduate programme on the topics of Federalism, Governance and Multi-level-governance.
Federal Scholar in Residence-Program. The winner is granted a research stay up to 3 weeks at Eurac Research. The underlying rationale of this program is to enhance the exchange of scholars dealing with federalism and regionalism from a comparative perspective in order to both elaborate new project ideas and to stress the importance of conducting comparative research.
Simulation game."Let's go federal! How to establish a federation. Which one?!" The underlying rationale of the different modules of the role play is to create living labs where participants assume the function of political decision-makers as well as of civil servants. The different modules of the role play can either build upon each other or be carried out separately.
UQAM Summer Institute 2019: "Negotiating and Sharing Power(s): Autonomy, Recognition and Cooperation"
