Professor Gingrich awarded ERC Grant

5th March 2018


Professor Jane Gingrich, Tutorial Fellow at Magdalen in Politics, has been awarded a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Grant.

Worth €1.37 million and lasting five years, this ERC Starting Grant will enable Professor Gingrich to direct a new project which aims to fill gaps in comparative data on the educational contexts in which most of the current adult population was actually educated, the political determinants of these contexts, and their long-term impact on a range of social and political outcomes.

This project will break new ground in both the study of education and advanced political economies, providing useful resources to policymakers in understanding and crafting school reform.
