Representation of Interests

Doctoral representatives are there for the concerns of the young researchers. Since the BGHS lays a great emphasis on its members' participation, the doctoral researchers choose their representatives among themselves. These are:

  • A Doctoral Researcher in history and a Doctoral Researcher in sociology for the "Doctoral Programme"
In addition, there are two representatives for each of the two areas :
  • Internationals
  • Social and Cultural Affairs
The office term of the elected doctoral representatives is one year.
