DJ_SHEMA CALL FOR APPLICATIONS- Open Society Institute East East Program More information: Website: http://www.soros.org/initiatives/east/about E-mail: [email protected] (Geszti Judit, Program coordinator) Open Society Institute, London - East East Programme: Partnership Beyond Borders Application deadline: at least three months before a project is planned to begin The East East Program: Partnership Beyond Borders is one of the initiatives implemented by the Open Society Foundation in London (a registered UK charity). The program supports international exchanges that bring together civil society actors to share ideas, information, knowledge, experiences, and expertise and to support practical actions that result from that networking. The East East Program: Partnership Beyond Borders provides financial and human resources that enable civil society actors to: - Build and/or strengthen resources and expertise - Share best practices/lessons learned in social transformation - Collaborate on innovative solutions to common challenges - Create and/or strengthen international advocacy coalitions. The program gives priority to long-term initiatives with clear goals and realistic potential for effecting positive change, for example, by: 1) Empowering marginalized and/or vulnerable sectors of society; 2) Promoting cultural, ethnic, and social diversity; 3) Managing the impact of social, economic, and political change; 4) Making information accessible and available to the public; 5) Encouraging public engagement and empowerment in civic dialogue. The program responds to the needs of people in many diverse societies and empowers them to work beyond borders to achieve shared goals and leverage international experiences and perspectives to promote an innovative social agenda. The East East Program: Partnership Beyond Borders is implemented by the Soros foundations. Applications are received and reviewed by these foundations. In 2005 the East East Program: Partnership Beyond Borders launched a Subprogram for European Integration. This subprogram will prioritize cooperation among new EU member states, candidate and potential candidate countries, and the EU eastern neighbours. Specifically, the subprogram seeks to leverage and maximize EU accession experiences in Central Europe to future EU member countries and EU eastern neighbours. The subprogram will seek to discover and inspire the new vision and energy required to address civil society collaboration among new EU member states, future member states, and the EU eastern neighbourhood. The subprogram is open to Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, and Ukraine. Application Information: The East East Program does not accept applications centrally. For more information, please contact the appropriate East East Program coordinator. Applicants are requested to provide complete project information according to the Project Application Form. Deadlines and decision process The East East Program coordinator in the Soros foundation in the country in which a project is to take place evaluates project proposals. After this, proposals are sent for further review to the East East Program network and finally, submitted to the management in the Open Society Institute-London for final decision. Proposals must be received by the program management at least three months before a project is planned to begin. Financial Support: The East East Program should not be the only source of financial support for a project. Sources of financial support and/or in-kind contributions must be stated in the project application. For seminars, roundtables and exchange visits, financial support may be requested for accommodation; meals; in-country travel; translation; printing/publication of project results; and, reasonable administrative expenses to prepare the project. If other expenses are requested, the organizer must provide complete budget detail and explanation. For other types of cooperative projects, the organizer must provide complete budget details and explanation of requested expenses. nb. Reasonable administrative expenses may include communication (telephone, fax, postage) and preparation of project materials. The program does not support purchase or rental of equipment or office supplies to maintain equipment; fees for services provided by the organizer; organizer's staff salaries; general overhead costs. Participation: If this project is accepted for East East Program support, travel expenses of participants will be requested through the East East Program in the foundations of the Soros foundation network. Decisions about supporting participants to projects are made by the foundations. Fundamental to the East East Program is that network of national foundations have opportunities to identify and select participants to projects supported in the East East Program. A project organizer may suggest participants to a project. A participant suggested by an organizer may apply to the East East Program coordinator in the foundation in his/her country. The organizer is responsible to inform suggested participants to apply to the foundations for consideration of East East Program support. East East Program support is not guaranteed for participants suggested by an organizer; there is no guarantee that a foundation will support participants suggested by an organizer. Organizers are asked to provide complete and detailed information about suggested participants, including name and title, professional responsibilities and reasons suggested to attend a project.

DJ_SHEMA FELLOWSHIP- The Program in Law and Public Affairs, Princeton University Web: http://www.princeton.edu/~lapa/ The Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) invites outstanding faculty, independent scholars, lawyers, and judges to apply for appointments as fellows for the academic year 200607. Successful candidates will devote an academic year in residence at Princeton to research, discussions, and scholarly collaboration on topics broadly related to law and public affairs. Under exceptional circumstances, applications for only one semester in residence may be considered. We plan to name five or six general fellows. We will also name one Microsoft LAPA Fellow in Law, Property, and the Economic Organization of Society LAPA is a joint venture of the Woodrow Wilson School for Public and International Affairs, the University Center for Human Values, and the Department of Politics. All LAPA fellows participate in various activities of the program, including faculty-graduate seminars, colloquia, and public lectures. They enjoy access to Firestone Library and a wide range of other activities throughout the University. Fellows devote the major portion of their time to research and writing on law and public affairs. Some fellows also have the opportunity to teach in one of Princeton's graduate or undergraduate programs. Subject to the approval of the dean of the faculty, LAPA will sponsor courses that contribute to a liberal education in Princeton's undergraduate, graduate professional, or graduate research programs. All applicants should have a doctorate or a professional postgraduate degree. The fellows program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but it does not support work toward the completion of a degree. Salaries vary according to individual circumstances but will not exceed a maximum that is set each fall. Fellows from academic institutions normally receive one-half their academic-year salaries for the appointment period. Additional salary may be paid to fellows who teach a course. The selection committee, made up of Princeton faculty associated with the program, evaluates applicants on the basis of (1) the quality of their achievements in their field of specialization and their ability to benefit from the activities of the program; (2) the significance of their proposed contribution to the purposes of the program; and (3) the contribution they are likely to make in the future to legal scholarship and practice. To apply, please submit the following: 1. A curriculum vitae. 2. A significant piece of written work such as an article or a book chapter (preferably something written during the last three years). Do not submit more than one piece. 3. A statement (of no more than 1,500 words) describing in detail the research project on which you plan to work while in residence at Princeton. The statement should describe the topic for your research and your proposal for addressing it. The statement should also address the importance of the proposed project within the context of your own past work (if relevant) and other scholarly work. 4. A second statement indicating whether you would like to teach a course. If so, the statement should include a brief description of the proposed course, a paragraph about how the course might be organized, and a sample reading list of books, articles, and/or cases. Typically, proposed courses should be seminars on a topic of normative and empirical significance in the broad area of law and public affairs. Subject to the approval of the dean of the faculty, LAPA will sponsor courses that contribute to a liberal education in Princeton's undergraduate, graduate professional, or graduate research programs. 5. A completed information summary form available in Web and Word format online at www.princeton.edu/~lapa or by request from the LAPA administrative office by e-mail ([email protected]), telephone (609-258- 5626) or fax (609-258-0922). 6.

DJ_SHEMA Balkanalysis.com, a leading independent voice for news, analyses, investigative journalism, historical studies, book reviews and more, is currently expanding its base of writers. This presents a unique opportunity for scholars, journalists, researchers, travel writers and other folks who are working on most any subject involving the Balkans and SE Europe, including Greece, Turkey and the Caucasus. While we cover a wide range of topics and are open to creative suggestions, perhaps the one key criterion is to run something unique, whether it be in terms of analysis or factual information, in short, a piece that cannot readily be found elsewhere. Ideal word count is between 1,000-2,000 words though they can be longer if necessary. Note that while at present we do not offer payment for articles, writing for Balkanalysis.com is a good way of gaining exposure before a diverse yet select audience which regularly includes key institutions, governments, military, etc., for example the UN, EU, US govt., World Bank, OSCE, think-tanks, and so on. Interested writers please contact me at this address, or at [email protected] with a brief biographical introduction and a short (1-2 paragraph) synopsis of the article you would like to write. All best, Christopher Deliso, Director www.balkanalysis.com

DJ_SHEMA We would like to announce the appearance of a new website featuring primary sources in English relating to East-Central European history. The site is administered through Cornell's Institute for European Studies and the Einaudi Center. You can access it at: http://www.einaudi.cornell.edu/europe/integrated_history/index.asp Some of the features of the site are: * over 80 primary sources already available (and that number is constantly growing at an average rate of about two per week) * many sources are original translations of rare primary sources (newspaper articles, court documents, etc.) by scholars in the field of East-Central European history * access to the cite is free and will always be so * no dead links -- we do not post a source to our site if we do not have permission to store it permanently * a straightforward system of organization * each source includes a brief description and key word list so it can be easily searched with the website's engine * the texts can also be searched in full-text form using the D-Space engine The site will also -- by the end of this academic year (2005-2006) -- be home to a 10,000-page digitized collection of primary sources (in Polish) relating to Polish Solidarity. We want to make this site a central clearinghouse for sources relating to East-Central Europe for all to use, so if you have sources already online, translations that are in the public domain, or sources for which you own the copyright that you would allow us to add to the site, please contact us (Holly Case, [email protected] or James Bjork, [email protected]). We have already benefited from the advice and contributions of several individuals and sites (including Mills Kelly, HABSBURG Source-text archive, Eagle Glassheim, Malgorzata Fidelis, Jeremy King, Pieter Judson) and we would like to add more to that list to make this site truly useful to historians of the region and beyond. One way we have found to involve students in the project is to assign them the task of locating and annotating a source themselves that is then posted to the site. This way their efforts can be made useful to the larger academic community and they can receive credit for the work they have done. If you would be interested in contributing to the site's permanent collection as part of a course assignment, please contact Holly Case ([email protected]) for more information. We hope you will find the site useful and we look forward to receiving your suggestions, opinions, and contributions!
