Chatham House is pleased to invite applications for the Robert Bosch Stiftung Academy Fellowship (Central & Eastern Europe and Africa) in the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs.
The Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs was formally launched by the patron of Chatham House, Her Majesty The Queen, on 18 November 2014. It offers potential leaders from around the world the opportunity to get involved and contribute to the work which Chatham House does.
Academy fellows are drawn from government and the broader policy community, the private sector, media and civil society. During their time at the Academy, fellows deepen their understanding of critical issues, learn new skills, develop their networks, and propose new ideas and solutions to complex policy challenges and opportunities. The Academy welcomes approximately 10-15 fellows per year from across the world.
This year, fellows will be hosted by the Europe Programme at Chatham House. During the fellowship, the fellow will conduct a research project of their own design which falls within the research topic below.
Transition experiences and developments in relations between Central and Eastern Europe and sub-Saharan Africa.
The parameters for the research topics have been designed in broad terms to allow applicants to devise a project that appeals to their own research interests.
However, proposals should take into account the broader context of the project, which places particular reference on bilateral relations and cooperation, democratic transitions, institutional capacity-building, and public policy reform.
