Master in International Studies, HEI, Geneva, Switzerland

The Department of International History and Politics (HPI) Graduate Institute of International Studies (HEI), Geneva invites application to its 2-year Master in International Studies (MIS) commencing September 2007

The Department of International History and Politics specializes in teaching and researching the
haistorical, political, social, cultural, and ideational dimensions of contemporary global structures and relationships. Besides a reputed faculty with varied interests, the section welcomes each year a distinguished array of visiting professors from around the world. Most of the classes are in the form of small participative seminars with 15-20 students and marked by a collegial atmosphere of debate and discussion. HEI is a bilingual institute in English and French. MIS students are expected to have certified competence in one language and passive knowledge of the other.

MIS courses emphasize the role and relevance of historical knowledge for interpreting contemporary issues and developments. Pluridisciplinarity is a well-established part of the HEI’s academic tradition, and MIS students in International History and Politics may opt to pursue courses in one or more of the following complementary disciplines: international law, political science and international economics. By the end of the two-year programme, we anticipate MIS students would have acquired the tools, competences and awareness allowing them to engage in academic research or in professional careers in international organizations, governments, media, multinational businesses, NGOs, etc.

MIS students may also have the chance to participate in exchange programmes with partner Universities worldwide.

Admission to the programme is open by rigorous selection to promising students having bachelor degrees/majors from recognized institutions worldwide, in History, Politics (including political science), International Relations, and other related humanities and social science disciplines. Candidates with some experience of independent research are particularly encouraged to apply. International students are strongly encouraged to apply. Scholarships may be available to meritorious and needy students.

The deadline for application is 31 January 2007.

EUROFOR conference in Budapest

The Berlin Institute for Comparative Social Research (BIVS) invite you to to apply for a scholarship to attend the forthcoming EUROFOR Marie Curie conference on "Politics of the Exclusion and Return: The Phenomena of Diaspora Formations" in Budapest, Hungary.

After the successful staging of the past events in Italy, Greece, Malta and Slovenia, the series of twelve scientific conferences on migration management is clearly gaining momentum. The past conferences turrned out to be successful platforms for the exchange of knowledge and fruitful debate of research ventures in the fields under review.

The next event will take place from 12 - 15th April 2007 in Budapest. Approx. 30 young researchers (mostly PhD candidates) as well as several experienced researchers, scholars and policy-makers will be attending the event.

There are 32 Marie Curie scholarships available for young and experienced researchers from EU Member States and Third Countries, covering travel and accommodation for this four day conference.

This particular event focuses on diaspora formations, minority politics and trans-state relations. The phenomena of diaspora formations will be discussed in an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.
Throughout the workshops and seminars the following topics will be addressed:

- Concepts and Notions of Diaspora
- Diaspora Communities: Case studies
- The Role of Diasporas in Contemporary Conflicts
- Ethnic Entrepreneurs in the Diaspora
- Trans-State Politics in the 21st Century: The impact of diasporas on changes in the homelands

As usual in the Marie Curie EUROFOR conferences, Saturday morning will be dedicated to the presentation and analysis of the local situation. In addition, two workshops will serve as platform to discuss methodological issues and problems that arise during the course of the researchers’ work.

The deadline for paper proposal submission of the conference in Budapest is 31 January.

2007-2008 Returning Scholars Fellowship Program


Open Society Institute
International Higher Education Support Program
Academic Fellowship Program

The Returning Scholars Fellowship Program (RSFP) invites applications from talented scholars who seek university positions and academic careers in their home countries after studying abroad. The program is open to citizens of Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Tajikistan and Ukraine.

RSFP, a part of the Academic Fellowship Program (AFP), welcomes scholars from these countries who have received (or will receive by September 2007) an internationally competitive postgraduate degree in anthropology, area/cultural studies, gender studies, economics, history, political science, international relations, psychology, public administration, philosophy, social work, sociology, public health, human rights and public law, or journalism/media studies. The program does not support scholars in philology, the visual and performing arts, or business.

AFP fellows are placed in carefully selected university departments that are amenable to change and demonstrate a realistic and clear vision for future development. RSFP helps universities in the region retain promising young scholars, who are essential to the revitalization of departments and to the sustainability of higher education reforms. The program represents part of a conscious strategy to combat "brain drain" by offering financial, institutional and professional development support, as well as further opportunities as program alumni. Returning Scholars and partner departments also benefit from the presence of AFP-supported International Scholars, who provide expert mentorship in such areas as professional development, curriculum development and reform, research methods, and teaching/learning methodologies specific for their discipline.

AFP supports placement of Returning Scholars generally in AFP partner departments. A list of current Academic Fellowship Program partner departments can be found on our website. The list is subject to change in the 2007-08 academic year, and applicants are advised to explore placement possibilities with their respective Region Manager or Country Coordinator.

Fellowships include a monthly stipend and various allowances, in addition to the opportunity to participate in departmental and professional development projects.

Application deadline: March 23, 2007.
Fellowships begin in August or September 2007 and normally last one academic year, with the possibility of renewal. For applications (see attached file) and guidelines,

'Introduction to Human Rights' course



Top quality training on human rights is now available for free online, thanks to a partnership between Fahamu and the OpenCourseWare Consortium.

Through the partnership, the 'Introduction to Human Rights' course, jointly developed by Fahamu and the University of Oxford, Department for Continuing Education, has been made freely available on Fahamu's website. The course is designed to provide people with a comprehensive definition of human rights and how these rights are monitored and enforced.

Some 600 organisations and individuals have completed this course since 2003, said Fahamu Director Firoze Manji, and we are making the material available for free online so that anyone, anywhere can have the benefit of training in human rights issues.

Fahamu has specialized in developing a range of distance-learning courses aimed at strengthening the capacity of human rights and civil society organisations in Africa and around the world. The topics covered by the courses are the result of extensive research conducted in Africa into the training needs of such organisations.

Fahamus distance-learning methodology, involving CDROMs, email-based facilitation and workshops, has been widely adopted by institutions such as the University of Oxford, Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Article 19, the UN-affiliated University for Peace and others.

Previously these courses were only available to those participating in courses organised by Fahamu, but making these courses available on the web through OpenCourseware will allow anyone with access to the internet to benefit from Fahamus unique human rights training materials. 'An Introduction to Human Rights' is the first course to be published which will be followed by 'Campaigning for Access to Information' in November.

The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a collaboration of more than 100 higher education institutions and associated organizations from around the world creating a broad and deep body of open educational content using a shared model. The mission of the Open Course Ware Consortium is to advance education and empower people worldwide through open course ware.


The courses can be viewed online http://rightstraining.fahamu.org

Fellowships in Sustainability Science

Center for International Development, Harvard University
Due date for preliminary applications: December 15, 2006

The Sustainability Science Program at Harvard University's Center for International Development invites applications for resident fellowships in sustainability science for the University's academic year beginning in September 2007.

The fellowship competition is open to advanced doctoral and post-doctoral students, and to professionals engaged in the practice of harnessing science and technology to promote sustainable development. Successful applicants will spend their fellowships in residence at the Sustainability Science Program, receiving a competitive stipend plus health, office space and computer support, and access to Harvard's libraries and other research facilities. Fellows will be expected to spend about half time on their own work, and half time in collaborative work with other fellows and faculty associated with the Program.

The Sustainability Science Program seeks to advance basic understanding of the dynamics of human-environment systems; to facilitate the design, implementation, and evaluation of practical interventions that promote sustainability in particular places and contexts; and to improve linkages between relevant research and innovation communities on the one hand, and relevant policy and management communities on the other. Applicants should describe how their work would contribute to "sustainability science," the emerging field of use-inspired research seeking understanding of the interactions between human and environmental systems as well as the application of such knowledge to sustainability challenges relating to advancing development of agriculture, habitation, energy and materials, health and water while conserving the earth's life support systems.

In addition to general funds available to support this fellowship offering, special funds are available to support applicants from developing countries and Italy, who are therefore particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should send via email (not hard copy) a preliminary application by 15 December 2006.

The preliminary application should include a cover sheet http://www.cid.harvard.edu/sustsci/grants/fellows
/07_fellows_cover_sheet.htm

OR http://tinyurl.com/uvrh7),

preliminary research proposal (3 pages maximum), and CV (3 pages maximum). It should be emailed to sustsci_grants@ksg.harvard.edu. Applicants will be notified by December 22 whether they are invited to submit a full proposal. Full proposals must be supported by a Harvard faculty member who is prepared to work with the fellow. Fellows may make their own faculty contacts, but the Program will also seek to facilitate matching of faculty with fellows.
The deadline for full applications is 1 February 2007.

The Program invariably receives more strong applications than can be supported with the funds available. Prospective fellows are therefore strongly urged to pursue additional sources of stipendiary and research support that they can draw on if they are admitted to the fellowship program but full funding is not available to cover their expenses.

Applications from those with their own resources are also welcome.

More information on the Sustainability Science Program and
Fellowships is available at

CALL FOR ENTRIES: Children and Youth Productions at BaKaFOR


Children and Youth shall do it themselves: producing programmes. The didactical approach to that method mostly is: learning by doing. But it is much more than that. Turning away from that global brand of always the same puppet shows, it is recurring to their own life, to their own culture, to their own strength and power by the means of television. Light cameras (and light technical facilities over all) give children and youth a chance to produce short programmes themselves. Over all, if children and youth get the opportunity to turn their own stories into short programmes, they get a chance to develop self-consciousness and becoming aware of their natural and their social environment.

BaKaFORUM 2007 will put emphasis on that kind of production, with a large thematic approach, even if programmes connected to the "producing peace" core theme will be very much appreciated. And still, this session will be open to high quality productions on that focus of war and peace that are not produced by children and youth themselves.

Please register your programmes for screening in the registration area. You may want to register the same programme for screening and for the contest.

Please understand that the BaKaFORUM program committee will have to select the programmes for screening. Thus, we recommend to indicate a time code of a shortcut quote with your first submission, in case the programme may not be selected for a full-length screening.
Programme registration deadline: December 1st 2006.
