International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
I have applied to the SSH program once before, managing to get on to the waiting list (unfortunately came no
further). I have established considerable contacts (but am open to more, perhaps different variation)
throughout Europe and Canada and the USA towards a project that examines the challenges of civil-military
operations, which Europe is engaged in. For this call the relevance of the human rights topic is significant,
particularly where it states under the call 8.4.2-1: It could assess the conditions under which state and non-
state actors may be among the perpetrators of human rights violations or, on the other hand, offer protection
of human rights. The relationship between the protection of human rights, humanitarian law and assistance
should also be examined. I have applied as coordinator in my previous application. Otherwise I have other
international research experience being the principle investigator/leader of an International Polar Year
project that included 3 main participating countries (Norway, Canada and Russia) and has gone for 5 years.
