CENTER FOR POLICY STUDIES INTERNATIONAL POLICY FELLOWSHIPS, 2002
All applications must be submitted online at http://www.osi.hu/ipf/apply.html by July 1, 2001
The Central European University Center for Policy Studies (CPS) is calling for proposals for its year 2002 International Policy Fellowships (IPF) program, which is affiliated with the CPS and the Open Society Institute-Budapest. Broadly speaking, an open society is characterized by a reliance on the rule of law, the existence of a democratically elected government, a diverse and vigorous civil society, and respect for minorities and minority opinions. Launched in late 1999, the CPS works with a broadening circle of policy analysts and institutions to promote the development of policy center networks throughout Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and Mongolia, as well as countries in South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. The Center undertakes policy research and advocacy that furthers the open society mission and disseminates quality analyses in accessible formats. The CPS International Policy Fellowships are intended to support the analytical policy research of open society leaders and to provide these Fellows with professional policy training. The program aims to improve the quality of analysis in countries where the Soros foundations work by ensuring that these leaders are able to conduct research in their home region while maintaining local affiliations and a high degree of mobility and intellectual freedom. Fellows participate in four training seminars in Budapest over the course of the fellowship year conducted by professors of public policy from around the world and gain vital skills including how to write professional policy documents, identify appropriate policy instruments, and effectively advocate policies-skills that are underdeveloped in countries where the Soros foundations work. Good policy analysis is characterized by elements including a reliance on well-researched data; comprehensive, non-ideological assessment of relevant factors and options; explicitly stated criteria for assessing options; consideration of the interests and groups affected; and the clear presentation of feasible recommendations for action as well as how these recommendations should be communicated and implemented. Outstanding Fellows from Eastern Europe may be nominated to participate in additional training and research opportunities including a three-month International Junior Public Policy Scholar Fellowship in Washington, D.C. in affiliation with the Woodrow Wilson Center's East European Studies program. The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the United States'official memorial to President Wilson, was established by congressional legislation in 1968. Meant to reflect and continue Woodrow Wilson's commitment to a deeper understanding of issues crucial to global peace and stability, the Center serves as an international, interdisciplinary,
non-partisan scholarly institute which fosters scholarship in the humanities and social sciences and encourages dialogue between the academic and policy communities. East European Studies, housed at the Woodrow Wilson Center, provides a non-partisan forum for bringing historical and contemporary understanding of the former communist states of Eastern Europe and the Baltics to the nation's capital and throughout the country. For more details on the Wilson Center and its East European Studies program, please see further details in the online version of this announcement and visit the Center's website at www.wilsoncenter.org.
Applicants are encouraged to submit individual, practical and policy-oriented research proposals in the following subject areas. The product of each fellowship will be a detailed analysis of a major issue to be published in English and translated into other languages:
Fellowship Issue Areas: The Public Policy Process, The Impact of European Union Expansion on Non-Accession Countries, Policies to Promote Criminal Justice Reform and the Rule of Law, Conflict Prevention in Southeast Europe, The Role of Universities in Social Transformation, Primary and Secondary Education Reform Policy, Information Policy, Media Policy, Gender Policy, Roma Policy, Children's Services Policy, Cultural Policy, Urban Policy
Terms of the International Policy Fellowship Award Fellows will be provided with a one-year stipend, expenses including travel, and needed communications equipment to work full-time on research of their design in one of the above areas. The amount of the award will vary depending on standards in the Fellow's country of residence and the budgetary needs of the proposal.
To Apply: Application Requirements and Procedures
All initial queries must be entered online via the Internet directly into the IPF application database found at http://www.osi.hu/ipf/apply.html. Those who have no possibility to access the Internet (including from public libraries, Internet centers, or national Soros foundations) should send an
e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the IPF offices at (36 1) 327-3863 to discuss the best alternate application solution. Finalists will be interviewed at the expense of IPF. Successful applicants will be notified in November or December 2001 and no later than January 15, 2002. The fellowship
research cycle will approximate the period from February 2002 to February 2003. Applications sent by mail, fax or e-mail will not be considered unless you received prior approval from IPF staff to use an alternative method of application.

CERGE-EI Announces Research Competition in the Field of Economics
CERGE-EI, with financial support provided by the World Bank through the Global Development Network and additional funding provided by the Government of Austria for the South-East European region, announces a research competition in all fields of economics. Projects from the South East
European region will be administered in conjunction with the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW). Grants will fund scientific research based on sound economic analysis. Proposals must be postmarked by 01 July 2001.
Funding Details: Maximum funding will be US $35,000 although it is expected that the vast
majority of grants awarded will be for substantially smaller amounts. The median grant awarded to start in January 2001 was for US $13,300. Grants must begin no later than 31 December 2001 and end no later than 31 December 2002.
Applicants must be residents of any of the following countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, or Yugoslav Federation. Applicants must be resident for the substantial majority of each year in the country from which they are applying although they may be of any nationality or citizenship.
Applications may be submitted by individuals or teams of researchers. In the latter case, at least 50% of the researchers must be residents of eligible countries. No grant funds may be used to pay compensation to non-residents. Grant funds may, however, be used to pay travel and other direct costs required to enable participation by non-residents if such participation serves a clear scientific purpose. No applicant can submit or be a part of more than one proposal. Formal application must be made by an institution with which the applicant is affiliated and that will administer funds if
awarded. No funds may be paid directly to individuals. Examples of eligible institutions include Universities, Research Institutes or Non-Profit Organizations. Administrating institutions may charge no more than 10% of the funds applied for as overhead.
Funds will be released one-third upon award of the grant, one-third upon receipt of a progress report at the mid-point of the grant and one-third upon receipt of final deliverables from the grant. Where this schedule would result in a serious hindrance to the proposed research, the applicant may
petition for funds to be released on a different schedule after award of the grant. Final deliverables must include at least one formal research paper that has been submitted to an international peer-reviewed journal. Proof of submission may be required.
All successful applicants must agree to come to Prague to present a seminar on the completed work at CERGE-EI's expense if requested. Projects with a larger number of participants are encouraged to include in their budgeting a final workshop to which external discussants are invited. Such discussants should be chosen in conjunction with CERGE-EI and, for South East Europe, WIIW. For projects from South East Europe, workshops could be held at WIIW or in the region as desired. Proposal Submission
Eight (8) complete printed copies of all proposals must be submitted. In addition, all materials should be included on a diskette in WordPerfect (.wpd), Word (.rtf or .doc) or Acrobat (.pdf) format. All proposals must be submitted in English. Proposals must be postmarked by 01 July 2001 and sent by the fastest
practical method of delivery. The mailing address is: GDN 2002 Research Competition
CERGE-EI Politickych veznu 7, 111 21 Prague 1, Czech Republic
In order to ensure against postal problems, when a proposal is sent, an e-mail indicating that it should be expected should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals must, however, be submitted in hard copy and on diskette. No e-mail submissions will be accepted. Proposals must include the following seven components: A cover sheet clearly specifying the project title, names of principal researchers, e-mail contact addresses (very important - e-mail will be used for follow-up requests and questions). An abstract of no more than 200 words outlining the significance of the
research and the methodology to be used. A research proposal of no more than ten (10) doubled-spaced pages showing sufficient familiarity with the topic and methodology to provide confidence
in the project's successful completion. A bibliography of relevant literature. CVs of all participating researchers. A budget showing expenses in all categories. While the categories will vary
from grant to grant, they should, where applicable, include as a minimum: Salaries and other compensation for the grantee(s) (including payroll taxes and fringe benefits), Salaries and other compensation for research assistants and clerical personnel (including payroll taxes and fringe benefits), English Editing Fees, Grant related travel, Equipment Purchases, Data and software purchases, Materials, supplies, telecommunications charges, Institutional Overhead. A letter signed by a responsible officer of the sponsoring institution agreeing to administer the grant.
Proposal Review Process
Applications will be screened to ensure that they fall within the terms of reference for proposals. All qualified proposals will receive a minimum of three external reviews by experts in the field of the proposal selected. Anonymous reviewers' comments will be shared with applicants after the final
selection of grants to be funded. Final selection will be made by an independent panel of senior economists taking into consideration the external reviews along with the evaluation criteria enumerated below. Evaluation Criteria: The primary criterion will be the scientific merit of the proposed research. Scientific merit will be evaluated based on: Clarity of the proposed research question. Originality (preference will be given to projects that develop new methodologies or use the transition experience to obtain new insights into fundamental economic questions rather than those that call for mechanistic application of conventional techniques to new data). Use of the most modern and appropriate techniques. Competence of the principle investigator(s). Other things equal, preference will be given to projects that: Are relevant to current policy concerns and interests of the World Bank, broadly defined. For an overview of the types of research of interest to the bank, please see http://econ.worldbank.org/. Please also be aware, however, that fundamental theoretical research that will inform subsequent applied studies will be considered "policy-relevant". Are cost effective. Request funds for direct research expenses rather than income augmentation (i.e. could not be undertaken without the proposed grant). It is recognized, however, that low academic incomes often mean that scholars in the transition economies must supplement their base salaries from other sources including research grants and that grant support may facilitate research output by enabling scholars to substitute scholarly for non-academic activity (such as corporate consulting).
Promote cooperation between residents of eligible countries and scholars from those countries who currently reside elsewhere (including advanced graduate students). Increase the geographic, ethnic, gender, or other diversity of funded proposals. Expand the pool of research-active scholars in the region. Questions and inquiries may be addressed to: email@example.com.
The Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education - Economics Institute offers the program of doctoral studies in theoretical and applied economics, leading to a PhD degree which is fully accredited in the United States and in the Czech Republic.
The PhD program consists of two years of coursework followed by two years of supervised dissertation research. The working language of the institution is English. CERGE-EI encourages its students to conduct part of their dissertation research at partner institutions in Western Europe and North
America, as well as to participate in collaborative research projects in other countries.
The application deadline is 15 March, 2002.
Most students are granted tuition waivers and stipends for up to four years of study - no separate application is necessary.

VISITING RESIDENTIAL FELLOWSHIPS 2002 - 2003
Click here to see a list of Visiting Fellows The Kellogg Institute promotes comparative international research by attracting visitors, faculty, and students to Notre Dame and by providing them with a supportive community of scholarship. Researchers nearly always find new questions, ideas, and analytical approaches when they meet with colleagues from other institutions. To encourage that interaction, the Institute invites about eight scholars each year from the United States and
abroad to spend a semester in residence as Visiting Fellows. At the Institute these visitors from Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the United States meet regularly with Kellogg Fellows, all of whom are Notre Dame faculty members, coming from 12 departments. They share work in progress and research findings, undertake joint projects, gain feedback from others, and help to set research priorities. Fellows participate in twice-weekly seminars and other events at the Institute and advance their research on individual or joint research projects related to the Institute's themes.
FELLOWSHIPS: For the 2002-03 academic year (August-May), the Kellogg Institute will offer up to eight Visiting Residential Fellowships of one or two semesters at the University of Notre Dame. Normally the awards are for one semester, but exceptions will be considered. Visiting Fellows are
expected to be in residence at the Institute and to take part in Institute seminars and other meetings. They have faculty status within the University; they may hold joint appointments in academic departments; and they may be invited to teach a course. They have offices in the Hesburgh Center on campus and are in residence during their appointment, staying in apartments
located in the residential wing of the Hesburgh Center. THEMES: The Institute's research reflects commitments to democracy, development, and social justice, and focuses on five priority themes. (1)
Democratization and the quality of democracy. The Institute studies cases of transition to democracy, primarily in Latin America but also in Europe, Asia, and Africa, and explores the various aspects that affect the quality and eventual institutionalization of new democracies. It seeks to clarify the factors that enhance democratic governability, accountability, and responsiveness, as well as the expansion and consolidation of human rights and of the quality of public life. It encourages scholarship-theoretical, historical, and/or comparative-on these issues. (2) Paths to development. This theme traces the historical and analytical interconnections among processes of economic and social development, with special attention to issues of social equity and of the preservation or institutionalization of democratic rule. It aims to promote an interdisciplinary understanding of different modes of regional or national development, without neglecting the
increasing globalization of many of the factors relevant for such understanding. (3) Religion and the Catholic Church. Dealing mainly but not exclusively with Latin America, this theme focuses on past and present trends in Catholicism and other religious traditions, on the social and cultural relevance of churches, on the role of religion in popular cultures, and on the influence of churches and religious belief upon political, social, and cultural change. (4) Social movements and organized civil society. The Institute studies women's movements, labor unions, peasant organizations, Christian communities, popular culture, and other grassroots expressions. It examines these expressions in their own logics as well as in relation to various conceptions of citizenship, and of social and political inclusion and exclusion. It also examines these expressions in terms of
their relation to types of political regime, patterns of socioeconomic development, and to characteristics of labor markets. (5) Public policies for social justice. From the perspective of various academic disciplines, the Institute studies the impact of economic factors and government policies
on various issues of social equity. It studies and fosters efforts to design public policies, as well as innovative interfaces with various private organizations and social movements, that may advance social equity without undermining economic development and the expansion and institutionalization of democracy. CRITERIA: The Institute seeks scholars of high accomplishment and promise whose work and presence will contribute creatively to its major research themes. It welcomes applications from candidates of any country who hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in any discipline of the social sciences or history. Candidates will be evaluated individually, but joint projects will be considered. A 6- to 8-page statement (double-spaced) of your research project is of
great importance in the selection process. Without imposing a rigid format, we ask that you make clear: (a) the problem you are addressing, its interest and importance within and beyond your field, with summary bibliographical references; (b) how it relates to the research themes of the Kellogg
Institute; (c) your research design, including your basic hypotheses, the methods you are using, and the kinds of data or evidence you are considering; (d) where this particular project fits into your own
intellectual and professional development; and (e) how much you would expect to complete during your time at the Institute. STIPENDS: Stipends vary with seniority. Fellows may receive one direct
round-trip economy airfare. DEADLINE: A complete application, including references and all
documentation, must be received by November 2, 2001. Awards will be announced by February 1, 2002. FORMS: Click here for an online form (information will be submitted via email). Click here for a printable version (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader). For more information, contact:

The Jennings Randolph Program for International Peace awards Senior Fellowships and Peace Scholar Dissertation Fellowships to enable outstanding scholars, policymakers, journalists, and other professionals to conduct research on important issues concerning international conflict and peace. The program disseminates knowledge from these projects within the Institute and among policymakers, and it works closely with the Institute's Press to publish the products of fellows' research. Named for the former United States Senator from West Virginia, whose efforts over four decades helped establish the Institute, the Jennings Randolph Program has awarded over 200
fellowships since 1987. The competition favors applications that demonstrate a project's consistency
with the Institute's congressional mandate, which is to serve the American people through research, education, training, and the dissemination of information about the nature of interstate or civil conflict and peaceful ways to manage and resolve it. Project proposals that deal with the sources and nature of interstate or civil conflict, with ways to prevent, limit, or end violent conflict, and with post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation are welcome. Proposals should present a research agenda with a clear relevance to policy issues, although a policy dimension need not be the main thrust of the project. Historical topics are appropriate if they promise to shed light on contemporary issues. Area studies projects and single-case studies will be competitive if they demonstrate a focus on conflict and its resolution, as well as the applicability of the research to other regions around the world.
- Senior Fellowships, 2002-2003

months to conduct research on their projects, consult with staff, and contribute to the ongoing work of the Institute. Projects which demonstrate relevance to current policy debates will be highly competitive. The fellowship award includes a stipend, an office with computer and voicemail,
and a part-time research assistant. The competition is open to citizens of all nations. Women and members of minorities are especially encouraged to apply. All application materials must be received in our offices by September 17, 2001.

PRELIMINARY INVITATION 8 June 2001
The Media Plan Institute from Sarajevo, BiH, and the International Network of the Communication Universities (Le Réseau International des Universités de la Communication (RIUC)) are inviting all interested individuals and organisations to join us and lend solemnity to the First Communication
University in Southeast Europe, which will be held in Sarajevo, BiH, from 18 to 20 October 2001.
The name of the first Communication University is "Communications: Keys to the Development".
A series of seminars, meetings, roundtables, presentations and lectures, which will be held within this University, will be devoted to the consideration of the role of modern communications in the development of the Southeast European countries. Context: The First Communication University of Sarajevo 2001 will expand the tradition of the Summer University of Communications from Hourtin (France) to the territory of Southeast Europe, whereby Sarajevo will become integrated in the international network of the communication universities. This interactive and inter-disciplinary forum will aim at promoting freedom of communication and an open discussion within civil society and democracy all that is desperately needed in this turbulent and fragmented part of the
world. The Southeast European region will become a central venue of discussions at the University, perceived in the context of a new Europe which is opening its doors to what it used to consider as its periphery. Such an open University, which will bring together experts and professionals, politicians
and scientists, corporations and pubic institutions, educational and research centres, will encourage an animated debate and help a new Southeast European society to consider the communication issue within the region and beyond. Objectives: The University aims at launching a public discussion about the role of communications in the development of and co-operation between the Southeast European countries. A key issue that the University will be dealing with is the mode in which the region may join the European integration processes by way of using new communication technologies and overcoming the existing barriers against the information society of the future. The University will raise the issues which are important for the communication sans frontiers, thereby providing a basis for the future co-operation. This can be achieved only through a gradual process. This is the reason why the intention is to have the Communication University in Sarajevo on a regular, annual basis, within a regional calendar.

B. Lectia de cariera - 4
Cele mai importante calitati ale fiecarei persoane, in cadrul unei organizatii, sunt cele personale. Din pacate, sunt prea putin luate in considerare la angajare. Calitatile tehnice (cele determinante la angajare) nu sunt la fel de valoroase. In timp, chiar si cel mai bun tehnician al organizatiei va fi exclus din cadrul ei daca nu va sti cum sa interactioneze cu colegii sai. Oricine poate dobandi calitatile tehnice cerute de un loc de munca, dar nu oricine poate sa se adapteze si sa interactioneze foarte bine cu mediul intern al organizatiei. Succesul in cariera depinde 90% de calitatile personale.
