The M.O.R.D.O.R. project is planning several events aimed at scholars, students and stakeholders working on authoritarian contexts and democracy support and EU foreign policy. 

For students of the consortium we plan two Master Classes. We offer full funding (travel, accommodation, tuition fee) to advanced undergraduate and graduate students working on the topics related to the Master Class. A selected number of places will opened up to non-consortium students (partial funding: accommodation, tuition fee). All applicants will follow the same section process. More information about terms and conditions and eligibility criteria can be found on this website.

Each Master class will host about 20-30 students for a duration of 8 or 10 days. Classes will be taught by scholars from the M.O.R.D.O.R. consortium in addition to some guest lecturers. 

By the end on the project by 2024, we plan to organize some major events to promote our project outputs
