7. UNF-Workshop: Conflict and Cooperation in Eurasian Cities- Napoli,

Description:
Workshop- Conflict and Cooperation in Eurasian Cities, Napoli, May 29, 2007

(Informal) Call for contributions

On the 29th of May we are holding, at the University of Napoli Federico II,
a workshop on multicultural cities

Synergies of the cities: conflict, cooperation and use of spaces in
multicultural Eurasian cities.

Consolidation and reshaping of borders, together with the urbanization processes and the forced migrations of the 20th centuries have shaken and altered the social, economic, ethnic and linguistic composition of most Eurasian cities. Many cities of Central and Eastern Europe have lost their 19th century plurilingual substratum. Still, new forms of multicultural interactions have developed in these cities, as in the overall European urban areas, between old settlers and new comers, in the different phases of the 20th century.

Ethnic and national identifications are multilayered, and social, regional, generational and gender forms of identifications, also play a big role in the identity of people, and of groups either. The apparent mono-national paradigm of the post WWII cities of Central and Eastern Europe, at a closer look, has to be challenged. The cities of the socialist societies, and of the post-socialist societies, reveal various forms of adjustments, choices, and peculiarities of the fast and slow nationalization processes. In general, the process of urbanization has continuously reshaped the cultural and social settings and interactions in the cities of Central and Eastern Europe, not to speak of Central Asia, where the nation building processes have
only partially being successful, and western Europe, whose urban areas have been exposed to massive global migrations in the last decades.

The demographic modifications and the reshaping of borders, along with the changes in the institutional and social setting during the "long" 20th century, have led to a transformation of the role and sense of the urban space, in the different European urban areas. The new relationships between town and countryside, and/or between the central urban area and the highly urbanized or industrialized peripheries, reflect the modifications in the identity and social structures of the urban centers. We have witnessed escalation of violence in a number of cities and pacific cooperation of locals in an apparently random pattern, which motivates us in the investigation of the reasons, causes, mechanisms and timing of ethnic and economic conflicts.

Starting out from some case studies of Eurasian cities (Mostar, Samarqand, Odessa and Jerusalem), the project intend to use first source material, gathered during fieldwork, to reach some theoretical conclusions. In the course of the project it is envisaged to integrate other cities into the case studies sample so to be able to extend theoretical conclusions to a broader area and compare different cities in Europe, as in the Mediterranean and Central Asian areas.

In particular the project tries to answer questions such as:
- The impact of the processes of mixing and un-mixing of the population.
- The different experiences and forms of concrete multiculturalism
- The elements bringing to an escalation of conflicts and those
bringing to pacific coexistence or even
cooperation between different groups.
- The role of economic and other factors in the nature, and extent,
of ethnic conflicts.
- The management of urban space in the promotion of ethnic and
political competition and of cooperation and integration.
- The border between public and private space; the self-organization
and the self-management of the public space by the local community vs.
the action of the state.
- The international and local actors in the development of the trends
towards cooperation and conflict in crises conjunctures.
- Examples of successful cooperation and the possibility to draw some
theoretical conclusions

In the course of the project it is envisaged to integrate such findings with those from other cities.

The idea is to meet up to discuss our research findings and possibly come up with some ideas for a large scale research project or at least building up of a network. We would invite researchers who might be interested in such project to either submit a short abstract or
contact us and inform on their availability. The reason why we call this an informal call *apart from the fact that the call is launched quite late- are two:

1. Since it is an informal (and pilot) event we have no funding at all for this event, those coming should cover their costs. We can assist in finding a cheap place to sleep 'chez l'habitant' (around 30 euros per night) or try to arrange something for free at somebody's place
(depending upon availability) and a lunch with pizza and drink cost around 5 euros and for cheap flights one can check www.whichbudget.com

2. Language, most of the paper givers are native Italian speakers and I reckon there will be one or two researchers with low English level and some presentations might be in Italian. You are welcome to present in English, French or Spanish (and, of course, Italian) but must be
aware that Italian will have a major role in the event

If you can get along with those conditions, are interested, and have a solid research project ongoing or about to be, please contact us at

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)

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.

Удь,

К сожалению, он не занимался логистикой до этого, но очень смышленный и целеустремленный парень. Получилось так, что он остался без работы, и подрабатывал некоторыми переводами. Сейчас работает Сeйлс Менеджером в одной из сапплай-компаний, но это его не устраивает.

Думаю небольшой тренинг, и он вклинится в режим логистик-рутины очень быстро.

3) THE MASTER'S PROGRAMME WITH A PERSPECTIVE ON A SOCIAL EUROPE

The Starting Point

The economies and societies of all nations are increasingly integrated into a global context which cannot be influenced decisively by individual states. Many constraints of globalisation are a phenomenon of Europeanisation, of a concentration of relations in Europe as a macro-region. At the same time this macro-region is developing new forms of regulation. The object of this programme is the analysis of the Europeanisation of economic, social, political and legal relations in the context of Europe's integration into the world order.

Europe has become a big and important neighbour of Turkey . Europe's political, economic and cultural characteristics extend beyond its borders. The ongoing approach between the Union and Turkey is incontestable. It requires the development of mutual understanding.

Objectives

The MA European Studies aims to prepare graduates for employment as professionals in the areas of scientific political consulting and administration of nongovernmental organisations, trade unions, industrial and employers' associations, but also of European and international organisations, the ministerial bureaucracy and transnational corporations.

The EuroMaster quali fies the holder to pursue a doctorate.

Curriculum

The MA European Studies is a two-year course programme. It is trilingual and interdisciplinary, involving political science, economics and law. The programme uses the standard European system of credits: ECTS. It requires students to acquire 120 ECTS. 84 credits are to be obtained in three semesters of course work, 12 in a three month internship, 18 in a three month master's thesis and 6 in an oral final examination. The third semester should regularly be studied abroad. Exceptions will be made where students cannot afford to study abroad and were unsuccessful in acquiring a scholarship.

Preparatory Intensive Language Course

The programme includes a pre-semester with a 6 month German intensive course for students with only a basic level of German language proficiency. The language course comprises 780 hours of language teaching and training. At the end there will be a language test on which the final admission of the student depends. The test will be at the level of C1 of the Common European Reference Frame (Zentrale Mittelstufenprüfung of the Goethe Institut). Fees for this course are included in the general tuition fees.

Students who are adequately proficient in both English and German but need language training in Turkish will be offered a six week preparatory intensive language course in Turkish.

Interdis ciplinary Modules

The focus of the programme are the following three modules:

Module 1: European Integration

Module 2: European Labour and Social Relations

Module 3: Europe in the World Order

Each of these three modules contains courses in sociology, political science, economics and law. Additional electives and tutored project groups enable participants to develop individual areas of focus. Students have to acquire at least 15 ECTS in each of these modules, enabling them to choose subjects from related programmes, especially during their study abroad, as electives.

Excursions to Ankara and Brussels

The programme offers a three-day stay in Ankara , where the students will have the opportunity to visit Turkish ministries, the representation of the European Commission and some NGOs.

A one-week stay in Brussels allows students to gain insight into the numerous and varied career opportunities that have developed within the various European institutions. Besides the European institutions themselves, the trip includes visits to NGOs and trade unions/employer associations. Students also have time to pursue their own ideas and establish contacts on the spot.

Additional costs will be involved for these excursions.

Intensive Language Training

The programme is trilingual. All the subject courses of the 1st semester and more than half of the courses of 2 nd semester are held in English. The rest of the courses will be held in German. Some electives are available in Turkish. During the first two semesters all students attend language courses tailored to the different levels of language competence and needs. At the end of semester 2 students should have a language proficiency in English at the level of C2 of the Common European Reference Frame, and of C1/C2 in German. Foreign Students with excellent language proficiency in English or German will receive Turkish language courses during the first two semesters.

Intercultural Competence

The target group of the programme are not only Turkish graduates interested in the European Union, but international students, as well. Thus, classroom experience will in itself be an international encounter enhanced through intensive group work and theoretical analysis.

Periods spent abroad help towards the acquisition of transnational, intercultural competence. Students with a Turkish education study their third semester in Germany, either in Hamburg, or at any other German university with which Akdeniz Universitiy has Erasmus student exchange agreements which include financial aid.

Degree

The degree conferred is "Master of Arts in European Studies". The degree will be jointly awarded by Akdeniz University and the University of Hamburg in one certificate.

Tutored Project Groups

During the second semester students will work in one tutored project group on an analytical question of their own under the supervision of one of the academic teachers, either from Akdeniz University or from the University of Hamburg . Connected to the work in the project groups will be a research methodology seminar. There will be a total of 9 ECTS awarded to the project group paper including work in the research methodology seminar.

Internship

All students complete an internship of at least 3 months in a country whose language is not their own (Exceptions can be made e.g. in the case of international organisations/Europe departments of ministries).The internship should enable testing of the acquired professional competence in a practical professional context. It is desirable for students to use the internship to find interesting subjects for the Master's Thesis and to form contacts that might be useful in the preparation of the thesis.
