4. International Human Rights Internship Program - Professional Development and Exchange Project Grants 2007 - 2008

The International Human Rights Internship Program’s (IHRIP) mission and work are based on the belief that human rights activists have knowledge and skills, as a result of their day-to-day work, that are important to the success not only of their own work, but the work of other activists and organizations, whether in their own or in other countries and regions. The human rights movement - in specific countries and regions as well as internationally - is strengthened through the exchange of this knowledge, experience and expertise. In line with this conviction, IHRIP makes grants available to human rights organizations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, East and Central Europe and CIS countries to enable their staff to undertake professional development exchange projects.

A project can be:
- A professional attachment, through which a staff member from an organization in one country serves as a temporary staff member of a host organization in another country, acquiring on-the-job training in a specific area of work or skill.
- An on-site training, in which an individual from one country who has particular experience and expertise in a specific area of work provides training to the staff of an organization in another country.
- A study tour, through which a staff member from an organization learns more about a specific area of work or about a particular strategy or approach to work by visiting and consulting with two or more human rights or human rights-related institutions in one or more other countries.
N.B. IHRIP gives low priority to support for attendance at courses or workshops. Proposals for such support will be considered only in cases where the desired training is narrow in focus and fulfills a clearly defined institutional need.

A grant covers the travel of the staff member or trainer as well as a basic living stipend and health insurance for the staff member (or trainer). Grants vary depending on the location and length of the project, and typically range from $1,000-10,000.

IHRIP is unable to support:
- Academic research or study
- Training where the applicant and proposed host organization or trainer are in the same country. IHRIP facilitates the exchange of experience among activists and organizations in different countries
- Training projects which are part of an organization's core work and are not directed at its staff - e.g., human rights education programs targeted to particular sectors or communities
- Training for officials or employees of government or quasi-governmental agencies or bodies.

Application deadline: August 31/December 31, 2007

5. Local Government and Public Service Reform Initiative (LGI) - Policy Fellowship 2007 - 2008
Application deadline: June 1, 2007

LGI's fellowship program supports practical policy reform in the region, builds the capacities of individuals who are well placed to influence policy, creates networks of multinational experts, and supports the mission of LGI. Each year LGI selects talented professionals from Central, East and South-East Europe and the former Soviet Union to participate in the one-year program. Fellows are policy researchers (especially those connected to prominent policy institutes and think tanks), policy advisors, civil servants and members of NGOs, advocacy groups or professional associations, others with relevant and/or equivalent experience.

This year LGI is featuring two topics:
Topic 1: Helping Impoverished and Vulnerable Groups Navigate out of Poverty: Legal and Regulatory Obstacles to Local Poverty Reduction
Topic 2: Public Arrangements for an Effective Multilingual State

LGI will award successful applicants with a stipend for a period of 12 months between October 2007 and October 2008. The stipend will cover monthly expenses related to research and travel costs. Additional funds will cover costs related to attending three international workshops, at least two of which will take place in Budapest, Hungary.

Descriptions of ideal applicants follow each topic being offered. Fellows are normally civil servants, members of advocacy groups or professional associations, policy researchers and policy advisers. A graduate degree or equivalent is required. Applicants should be citizens of the countries noted under each topic. As a rule, Fellows will be based in their home countries and will be required to attend three international Fellowship workshops. Fellows are expected to continue with their current employment, spending only up to fifty percent of their time on the Fellowship program.

Teams of two collaborating experts may be considered. If accepted the duo would need to appoint a team leader, with ultimate responsibility for the project. The stipend would be split between the two, but LGI would provide extra funds for the workshop-related travel expenses.

Please note that LGI looks favorably upon applicants who can demonstrate in their application that they have secured practical institutional support from a governmental ministry/department, or a reputable policy center or similar institution.

All applications must be in English and applicants must have excellent English-language skills. The English skills of finalists will be evaluated during personal or phone interviews to ensure they can actively participate in advanced, technical discussions in English with their team, mentor and others in the Soros foundations network about their topic.

Applications should be emailed to LGI. The subject heading must identify which Fellowship Topic you are applying for. Applications must include ALL of the following materials:
- Statement of interest (1 page maximum)
- Research proposal (2,000 words maximum) including a well-defined research problem, topic justification, research methodology, and expected outcomes of the research. See individual topic descriptions for specific requirements.
- Professional CV (which includes: full name, email and telephone number of the applicant, country of origin and residence)
- English language writing sample (maximum 5 pages)
- The name and contact information of three people familiar with the professional capacities of the applicant.

8. CEU Political Science Journal, Vol. 2, No. 3, September 2007 ‘The Political Economy of Post-Communist Transition’
Application deadline: May 30, 2007

The CEU Political Science Journal is an online and printed peer reviewed periodical that emerged in the academic community of Central European University, Budapest. The Journal accepts now submissions for its third issue of volume two (2007).

This issue aims to gather contributions that focus on understanding the profound changes witnessed after the fall of the Communist regimes. The contributions are expected to study the various paths followed in the attempt to create new political, economic and social systems in the post-Communist societies both in Eastern Europe and the former USSR. Some of the questions that could be answered are: What is the role of institutional and cultural legacies of the Communist era on post-communist societies? Why did a set of countries with relatively similar economic and political features, that entered simultaneously in the transition process from Communism to a democratic and capitalist system under relatively similar homogenizing factors (WB, IMF, EU) developed different types of capitalist systems? What difficulties have post-communist countries faced in creating democracy and capitalism simultaneously? Are these two goals compatible? What are the main paths of reinsertion in t! he world economy?

The journal welcomes papers that approach the post-communist transformations from an interdisciplinary approach, which manage to use the strong points of different social science disciplines. Both comparative integrative approaches that attempt to give an account of the systemic changes and case studies are welcomed.
