With the support of the Europe for Citizens (EfC) Programme, the Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) organised a student contest on the theme of “solidarity in the EU”, open to high-school, undergraduate, and graduate students from the TEPSA network and beyond.
Today, we are pleased to announce the winner of the TEPSA Student Contest at the Undergraduate level. Our winners are invited to attend TEPSA’s EU@Work seminars taking place in Brussels in October 2020, with travel and accommodation costs covered.
Undergraduate students were required to submit a short essay reflecting on the theme of solidarity in the EU. They provided concrete recommendations to policy makers in their chosen topic area.
“Fostering Solidarity through a Reformed EU Asylum Policy”, Chiara Mingozzi
Chiara Mingozzi is an Undergraduate Student from the University College, Cork. We felt that Chiara’s contribution was a strong case-study based essay, demonstrating a detailed and consistent understanding of solidarity as a concept, and culminating in concrete policy recommendations towards integration.
You can read Chiara’s policy paper here.
You can view the winning submissions at the graduate level here. In the coming days, we will also be announcing the winner of the high school category of the TEPSA Student Contest, so stay tuned!
