Phd course in legitimation of new institutions and policies

The PhD course in "Legitimation of New Institutions and Policies" is part of a Marie S. Curie ITN (MSC-ITN) project: Legitimation of Newness and its Impact on EU Agenda for Change (LNETN), which has a diverse range of topics, interests, and ambitions. Topics range from fluid ethics to bioenergy, with all of them being touched by policy and institutions at some point.
