Job description

Two PhD positions are available at the Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanties, Social Sciences and Education with the research group "Pluralism, Democracy, and Justice (PDJ)" and the project "Good Integration (GOODINT): Goals and bottlenecks of successful integration and social cohesion". 

The project 

The positions are affiliated with the newly financed research prosject Good Integration (GOODINT): Goals and bottlenecks of successful integration and social cohesion.  

GOODINT (2021-2025) project researches notions of equality of opportunity, cultural integration and social cohesion, and their impact on good integration. With focus on three European contexts (Norway/Nordics, UK, and Hungary), GOODINT develops empirically informed theoretical knowledge on good integration: its meaning, value, and means of achieving it.

For more informatino about the project, see the following website: GOODINT.

Applicants are required to submit a research proposal related to one of more of the following themes:

1.What does successful integration of migrants in European countries amount to? (The definitional question)

2.What, conceptually and empirically speaking, are the main obstacles to successful integration? (The realization question)

3.What is the moral significance of achieving it? (The normative question)

We are especially interested in political philosophical proposals that are problem-oriented and analytically discuss the above issue(s) in relation to a) equality of opportunity, b) cultural integration, or c) social cohesion. We are also open to projects that draw upon relevant empirical research in the social sciences, although the main theoretical framework should be within political philosophy/theory. With respect to relevant empirical contexts, GOODINT focuses on cases of Hungary, Norway/Nordics, and UK in particular.
