Support to Young Scholars
In order to support the Tunisian teaching staff in acquiring Ph.D. qualifications, the Scientific Board has selected six young researchers, two for each Tunisian Partner Universities, as candidates in PhD courses on Migration Studies.
The six Ph.D. candidates will be supported in their research activities in Tunisia and during some periods of stay in Europe in order to attend the doctoral courses in the three European partner Universities. Increasing the number of teachers with a Ph.D. qualification will improve the Tunisian Higher Education System. Positions of full professors are rare in the Tunisian university system, especially in the humanities and social sciences, due to a lack of teachers with a Ph.D.
