// THE CONFERENCE

Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences (BAGSS) is hosting its third annual inter-disciplinary PhD Conference in Bamberg from the 20th - 21st July. This year’s conference will focus on the theme ‘When the State Intervenes’ bringing together graduate students and leading scholars in the field. A number of cross disciplinary sessions ranging from education to migration and normative issues relating to state intervention provide a platform for dynamic and challenging discussions.

As well as the keynote speeches by the President of the International Public Policy Association, Prof. B. Guy Peters and the President of the European Association for Population Studies, Prof. F. Billari, the varied programme provides an opportunity for idea sharing and networking. Each session is designed in a way that an invited senior researcher will not only present his or her latest research, but also provide feedback on the papers presented by the Ph.D. students. Finally, at the end of the conference the participants will also be able to enjoy a conference dinner.
