We would like to congratulate Jessica Giandomenico who took part in a Degree Confernment ceremony on May 27 and is officially Doctor of Philosophy now. Dr. Giandomenico defended her thesis entitled "Transformative Power Challenged: EU Membership Conditionality in the Western Balkans Revisited" on 19 December last year. The doctoral ceremony was held on May 27 in Uppsala Dome Cathedral due to extensive renovations at the University Main Building.
The Conferment Ceremony takes place in late January and late May/early June and is a degree conferment celebration for those who have received PhDs during the year. In the solemn Conferment Act, the new PhDs receive their symbols of honour: a ring, a diploma, and a hat or laurel wreath.
