The James Madison Charitable Trust was founded in 2000 and relaunched in 2015.
A list of past projects can be found elsewhere on this website. In 2017 -2019 the main projects supported included an examination leading to the publication of a book entitled Central Banks in Federal Systems. Research leading to the publication in 2018 of Restructuring the State: European Integration and State Reform (Dr Paolo Dardanelli) was backed and this support will continue in 2019-2020.
The relationship with the University of Kent continues and the Trust was delighted to be associated with the highly successful conference in December 2018 focusing upon The Spirit of Europe; Federalism, personalism and subsidiarity.
Also in 2018, the Trust supported a workshop entitled External Relations and Federalism in the post-Brexit European Union which was held at the University of Strathclyde. It is expected that this workshop will lead to a journal publication.
The Trust has agreed a travel bursary for a graduate student and it is expected that the first will be awarded in 2019-2020.
This briefing will be updated regularly and if you have any comments or suggestions we would be delighted to hear from you.
