Germany: PhD Grants in Social Anthropology

Kategori: Beasiswa doktor (s3) antropologi di Jerman

PhD Grants Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology

Our Institute has the opportunity to fill the following positions in the context of the Research Group "Law against the State", headed by Julia Eckert

• PhD Grants

The Research Group focuses on law, authority and social behaviour in plural legal settings under conditions of increasing globalisation.

The project deals with local adoptions of international right discourses. It will study the global circulation of legal knowledge and norms of governance by looking how law is used by individuals and groups in conflicts with states. The projects wants to identify the social and political conditions that make people chose recourse

to law in their conflicts with the state and how legal recourse relates to other modes of articulating demands. Moreover, it wants to assess the effect of recourse to law in terms of changes in norms and expectations and in modes of the social organisation of demands.

Thereby it attempts to trace the changes in what is expected of state rule, the shifting norms of rights and justice, and the changes in practices of claiming rights caused by the interplay of local efforts and international pressures in the

institutionalization of norms of governance.

The focus is on states with majority Muslim populations, e.g. Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Indonesia, but also others depending on the applicant's preferences. Please consult the website for more information on the project.

The PhD Grants are generally awarded for 2 years, with the possibility of two six-month extensions. We expect our PhD students to complete a year-long period of fieldwork as part of their studies.
