IRCHSS New Ideas collaboration with European University Institute

As part of his project Cultural Encounters Network: Europe, the Mediterranean and the Maghreb 1988-2010 (funded by the IRCHSS New Ideas Scheme), Dr Crowley, Government of Ireland Senior Research Fellow, is co-organising a seminar with Professor Olivier Roy, Chair of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, Professor of Political and Social Sciences and director of the Mediterranean Programme at European University Institute (Florence) along with Jessica Northey (Researcher Borderlands Project EUI and member of the Middle East Working Group).
