PhD Student Papers

By means of a five page individual research paper, students are encouraged to dive deeper into the subject, on a topic of their choice. For those who would like to join efforts with others, a general subject is suggested (see syllabus). The paper should consist of (1) a well-defined (action-) research question; (2) a literature scan and review of some strands related to the subject; (3) findings - in terms of answers to the research question - and (4) suggestions - in terms of what to do next. The paper can not be more than 3000 words.
