Debating Europe
www.debating-europe.de

The Jean Monnet Network “Debating Europe” uses debate as a methodology for

  1. spreading knowledge on the European Union (EU);
  2. gaining knowledge about citizens’ opinions;
  3. enhancing exchange between citizens, students, academics and EU practitioners.

The process of debating enhances the legitimacy of the EU by regaining citizen’s trust in their ability to use political discussions to influence the policy-making process.

Praticing Transnational Politics (PATRAPO)

Practicing Transnational Politics (PATRAPO) is a project led by researchers from Fulda University of Applied Sciences, Autonomous University Madrid, and Zagreb University, with the associate partner Mac Ewan University, Edmonton. The project goal is to develop open access transnational teaching kits and a handbook for online blended learning seminars that train students for the participation in United Nations Model Games (MUN). Based on previous experiences both in MUN model games and in EU projects, the partners will jointly develop, establish and implement the following elements in their universities, to be carried out in a yearly rhythm:

  • a teaching kit for preparative joint blended MUN training seminars (1st semester of each academic year)
  • a teaching kit for joint blended or real life MUN (2nd semester of each academic year)
  • a handbook including a manual (intellectual property of the partners) and user advice for third parties
  • staff trainings: the project is a learning system including further training for teachers.
  • blended student mobility sustains the attendance of virtual and life MUN.

Jean Monnet Chair

The Jean Monnet Chair project “BridgE” has the aim to help bridging the gap between the European Union and its citizens by enhancing active debates on the EU with a) students and b) citizens that are neither engaged in EU-oriented civil-society organisations, nor in political parties.

Transnational governance and human rights

Students, PhD candidates, and professors from six countries and four continents participate in the project “Transnational Governance and Human Rights”. The project will expand the international network of the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at Fulda University of Applied Sciences and establish long-lasting partnerships until the end of 2024. For this purpose, the department successfully attained a one million euro grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) from its funding programme UAS.International (HAW.International). The project supports a variety of exchange programmes with six selected partner universities worldwide. These include the State University of New York (SUNY) in Cortland, USA, the MacEwan University in Edmonton, Canada, the German Jordanian University in Amman, Jordan, the Birzeit University near Ramallah in Palestine, Sciences Po Toulouse in Southern France, and the University College London (UCL), UK. It also strengthens the cooperation between academia and practice and establishes the “Fulda Centre for Transnational Governance”, which includes the MUN activities at Fulda. In addition to the internationalisation of studies and teaching, the project focuses on the development of an international research environment at Fulda University of Applied Sciences.
