All three are leading institutions in the field of political science and its neighbouring disciplines. The programme draws upon their faculty, research projects, facilities and services.
The three-year English language doctoral programme is designed for exceptionally talented and motivated graduate students. It offers state-of-the- art survey classes, a strong training in research methods and research design, skills courses and individualized supervision.

The successful applicants will be informed in the first half of April 2009 in order to enter to the doctoral programme in September of the same year. The three-year programme has a strong focus on social science theories and methods but also welcomes applications from adjacent disciplines like economics, history, law, and area studies.
Dissertation topics should refer to one of the following three areas of concentration broadly defined:
* The analysis of national and transnational causes and consequences of political, societal and cultural globalization.
* The challenges to governance in international and transnational settings including issues of politization and legitimacy, as well as in areas of limited statehood.
* The comparative study of regional cooperation, including the EU.
The application requirements for the programme are:
- An exceptionally strong completed university degree qualifying for PhD studies in political science, international relations, sociology, economics, law or adjacent disciplines.
- Proof of C1 level English language skills or the equivalent.
- CV
- A short letter of motivation (600 words maximum)
