Chatham House, in partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung, has launched a new Fellowship open to scholars from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
The Fellowship provides an opportunity for researchers at the start of their careers to advance their knowledge, develop research skills, and build links with policy and academic communities in the UK, Germany and other EU countries. The Fellowship will provide an invaluable personal and professional opportunity to conduct research at a leading international affairs thinktank. It is also intended to strengthen institutional ties between academic and policy communities in the UK, Germany, and research centres and universities in the post-Soviet region.
Each Fellow will spend six months at Chatham House in London, and also complete a short placement at a thinktank in Berlin. During their stay at Chatham House, the Fellows will pursue their own original research project relating to the politics, economies and societies of the post-Soviet region.
