Solidarities in Diversity (SOLiDi)

Dear all,

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Solidarity in
Diversity (SOLiDi) is looking for *15 Early Stage Researchers* to write a
doctoral thesis on *solidarities in diversity* and participate in an
international and interdisciplinary training network of 10 academic
beneficiaries and 23 partner organisations. ESRs will be employed for 36
months by a host institution and are required to take up academic and
non-academic secondments within the training network.

The aim of the network is to articulate a new vision on solidarity adapted
to superdiverse societies and to better equip professionals and
organisations with adequate and innovative tools for facilitating
solidarity in diversity. Through joint training events doctoral researchers
will be supported to develop innovative approaches on how to generate and
sustain solidarities across cultural boundaries, taking the proximity of
citizens with different ethnic-cultural backgrounds in specific places and
the practices they engage in as starting point and taking into account
social inequalities and uneven power relations.

The SOLiDi training program will combine in depth training on the state of
the art in sociology, geography and educational science on solidarity in
diversity with training in organizational strategies and policy-making and
public pedagogies. This combination is aimed at producing a cohort of
academically trained ‘social’ innovators, which acquire already during
their PhD training the transferable skills to translate academic insights
into social change. The starting date is 1st September 2021.
