The Network of Transnational Doctoral Research is dedicated to the provision of adequate structures and platforms for the mentoring and exchange of views among early‐career scholars.The 2013 programme will focus on the timely, complex and challenging topics included in the broader research area of Multiculturalism and the Law.

Selected papers may be invited to contribute towards the development of a themed edited volume.
For 2013, the Doctoral Programme on Multiculturalism and the Law will include two different types of activities available to an international group of doctoral students.
1. Intensive Doctoral Training Workshop (19-20 April 2013 hosted by the CEMS/SOAS, London, UK)
This event will be organized on the basis of a mixture of PhD presentations, followed by feedback session from peers and more experienced scholars. Participants will situate their on-going projects and share with trainers and group coordinators their achievements and concerns.
2. Transnational Research Colloquium on Multiculturalism and the Law (15-16 November 2013 in Lucerne, Switzerland)
The second event of the doctoral program will be the opportunity to discuss more advanced findings of the research groups as well as for stock-taking on the implementation of the entire programme. Keynote speakers will be additionally invited in order to enrich the added value of the event for participants.
