Embassy of Germany Campus Weeks
The German Information Center at the Embassy of the Republic of Germany sponsors annual "Campus Weeks" focused on undergraduates at US universities and colleges. The undergraduates together with a cooperating academic unit at the university organize a variety of activities, competitions, and talks centered on a theme that changes annually. The Embassy has awarded funding for Campus Weeks annually to the Center for European Studies since 2012. See the menu for previous activities. The embassy's website is http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/02__GIC/GIC/05/__Outreach.html

Interdisciplinary Working Group on Governing Work in the Global Economy
For two years, The Rutgers Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs supports the work of an Interdisciplinary Working Group on Governing Work in the Global Economy. Organized around a core group of faculty from the School of Management and Labor Relations, the Department of Political Science and Rutgers Business School, the group seeks to bring together faculty and graduate students from across Rutgers University to explore the influence of global economic dynamics on labor market regulation and working conditions around the world.
Already in place is a mailing list, Governing work -- Governing Work in the Global Economy (click link to subscribe).
The Center for European Studies will assist in organizing a seminar series in fall 2013 on the Euro crisis and its impacts on national welfare capitalisms in Europe. Please watch for future announcements.
