2-year-long international Masters course funded by the European Commission,
jointly offered by Central European University (Hungary), Institut
Barcelona d?Estudies Internacionals, IBEI (Spain), the International
Institut of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam (the
Netherlands), and the University of York (UK).

The Mundus MAPP Consortium is hosting outstanding third-country scholars
who are interested in contributing to the study program and strengthening
academic partnerships with the Consortium. Selected academics are hosted
for a period of minimum of two weeks and maximum of three months in one of
the Consortium's institutions. In addition to conducting research in one of
the disciplines Mundus MAPP draws on, they are required to teach or develop
elements of the Mundus MAPP program (e.g., independently offer or
contribute to courses, supervise thesis projects of Mundus MAPP students,
develop and teach in the Mundus MAPP summer school.) After ending their
visiting scholar activities, visiting scholars are expected to contribute
to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme in
general, and Mundus MAPP in particular, in their higher their higher
education institution and country of origin.

Interested academics are invited to elaborate on their proposed
contribution to Mundus MAPP in their application form. The exact form of
contribution is determined by a contract between the visiting scholar and
the Mundus MAPP Consortium.

special scholarships under the Erasmus Mundus Programme. The Consortium
selects, and forwards to the European Commission for approval, a number of
scholars each year.

Academic visits may start as early as September 2012, and continue during
the 2012-2013 academic year, but should take place during teaching terms.
