European Network on Inequality (ENI)

Residency experiences

For Harvard Inequality Doctoral Fellows, the ENI research residencies are designed to enable all Ph.D. participants—European specialists and non-specialists alike—to explore other research traditions and approaches to social policy in a more broadly comparative context. Inequality Fellows may use the research residency experience either to carry out original research towards a paper or to engage in a "research apprenticeship" alongside a European mentor.

Some twenty-five Inequality Fellows have participated in an ENI research residency to date. The EI fellows and their projects are listed below by site.
