Channeling research result of CPS projects and initiatives into teaching is one of the main contributions of CPS to teaching. Currently, the School of Public Policy is the main host for elective courses offered by CPS staff. Research fellows contribute to the Equality and Social Justice and the Development specializations of the public policy one-year MA program.
CPS contributes to the recruiting, selecting and advising of doctoral students in the Doctoral School of Political Science, International Relations and Public Policy and in the Social Anthropology Program. CPS also manages two European Marie Curie training network projects (ChangingEmployment, INTEGRIM).
Policy Labs are an elective course for students in the School of Public Policy. Run over three terms and supported by CEU faculty, students work in small teams of three-four to produce and present a piece of original research for an external client that is engaged in public policy advocacy, implementation and development. Clients vary in size and subject, but all come from the public, private and civic sectors and share a common interest for using social science research in support their work.
The program launched by CPS is designed to help young Roma intellectuals build their professional skills and promote their engagement in public affairs. The ultimate goal is to make the Roma part of the regular staff of mainstream organizations working in different fields of public affairs.
