The scholarships are attached to the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant for the project, Migration, Transnationalism and Social Protection in (post-)crisis Europe (MiTSoPro) led by Dr Jean-Michel Lafleur. MiTSiPro articulates social policy and migration studies’ approaches to ‘transnational social protection’ defined as migrants’ cross-border strategies to cope with social risks in areas such as health or unemployment that combine entitlements to host and home state-based public welfare policies and market-, family- and community-based practices.
