The current partners are the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), Helsinki, the Catholic University of Portugal (Lisbon), Leiden, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Madrid (Complutense), Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne), Prague (Charles University), the Graduate Institute of International & Development Studies, Geneva, and the Jagiellonian in Krakow.
