We are pleased to announce the Fall 2013 Fellowship programme in the MENA region for European and North American young professionals. Current events, the recent Baku Alumni Forum and the last cohort of MENA Fellows this past June underscore the need for accelerated dialogue and action in fostering peace, understanding, trust and cooperation. We are proud of all of our Fellows’ work in these areas and look forward to welcoming a new batch of exceptional young leaders to this group.
The Fellowship programme has an open call for applications this fall for European and North American participants, that will close on September 3, 2013 for this session. Learn more by clicking here.
