The Project

In New Zealand Māori, a hui is a meeting or gathering of people to discuss issues of significance, a process of considerable cultural importance. The HUI-EU Jean Monnet Project, supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, brings together early career academics embarking on Doctoral research in the field of European Union studies, delivering training, engagement and networking opportunities through the convening of a series of inter-institutional regional workshops across the Asia-Pacific.

Organised by the National Centre for Research on Europe at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand), HUI-EU is open to students at the pre- or immediately post-confirmation stage of their PhD studies, from any of the eight New Zealand universities, as well as three partner institutions: Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (Australia), Gadjah Mada University (Indonesia), and XXXX.

HUI-EU aims to foster relationships and networks among the next generation of researchers on the European Union, laying the foundation for ongoing collaboration across the Asia-Pacific.
