Dear Prof Nesterov,

I am excited to inform you that - the first open think tank on foreign policy - has launched a new competition for undergraduate and graduate students called “Your Ideas, Your NATO”.

We are looking for students’ ideas on important current issues that will be debated at the NATO Summit in Chicago in May, including partnerships with Arab Spring countries, spending more efficiently on defense, and building transatlantic values and community. As Russia is a NATO Partner, I would like to encourage your students at State University after M.Gorkiy, Ural to participate.

Winners will present their policy ideas at our conference in Berlin and receive feedback from NATO (round-trip airfare and 4 nights’ accommodation plus 500 EUR cash prize included). Students will also have a chance to collaborate with their peers in other NATO Member and Partner countries to come up with common solutions to these important transatlantic issues.

The deadline for submissions in the first category is February 23. You can find all the details here:

Articles must be written in English, but we will be judging all submissions based on ideas and content, and will help edit and improve writing. Even if students have little or no experience writing in English, if they have great policy ideas, we want to hear from them!

I would be grateful if you could forward this email to your students. If you have any questions about the competition,, or our mission to empower young people in the transatlantic policy debate, please do not hesitate to contact us at
