OSI Central Asia Research and Training Initiative

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the Call for Applications for the Junior and Senior Fellowships of the Central Asia Research and Training Initiative (CARTI). Please help us disseminate this information among potentially interested qualified young scholars in the post-soviet states of Central Asia, Afghanistan and Mongolia and encourage your colleagues in the region who are currently working on or have recently obtained their first doctoral degrees and who would benefit from this collaborative long-term academic support to apply for the 2007 Fellowships.

Below is a brief introduction to the program. Further details on the eligibility, notes on the language and nature of the supported projects, description of the
awards and application forms and guidelines are available at initiatives/ hesp


CARTI is a regional initiative of the Open Society Institute's International Higher Education Support Program that promotes the development of indigenous capacities for original scholarly and academic work in the humanities and social sciences and internationalizatio n of scholarship in the broadly defined region of Central Asia. In working to enhance independent research of university-based academics, CARTI is committed to innovation in, and enrichment of, university teaching in the humanities and social sciences and emphasizes the role of research in the development of academics as scholars in the classroom. The program provides support to innovative scholarly work and advanced training and networking opportunities to motivated young
academics in crucial early stages of their careers in the home academic environment.

The program aids these individuals in becoming conversant with the state-of-the- art scholarship and within international scholarly discourse in their subject areas, active scholars applying contemporary research methods and resources, innovators in teaching making active use of their own scholarly experience and motivated and prepared to pursue advanced learning opportunities.

CARTI Junior Fellowships support the individuals in early stages of their formal Doctoral studies (such as aspirantura) and focus on development of ideas and skills for high-quality research work. Junior Fellowships serve as medium for testing and challenging the theories, methods and assumptions in the core of the individual research projects, while at the same time guiding and assisting the Fellows in the first independent large-scale research efforts. Senior Fellowships are offered to young scholars who have recently received their Doctoral (e.g. Candidate of Science) degrees. The Fellowships support the advancement or revision of their research agenda and development of international research and teaching partnerships with special emphasis on presentation of scholarly work and translating/ incorporating the outcomes and experience of research into teaching.

CARTI supports active direct collaborative engagement of Fellows with advanced International Scholars engaged in similar studies and offers a versatile training program in foundation theories and methodologies of the disciplines and subject areas of the CARTI-supported projects, as well as venues for peed feedback, discussion and collaboration on the regional and international levels.

All Applicants for CARTI Fellowships must be citizens and residents of the following countries: Afghanistan* , Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan* and Uzbekistan. Complete applications must be submitted to the OSI/HESP office in Budapest no later than October 6, 2006.

New Left Review July-August 2006

In NLR 40, July-August 2006

Malcolm Bull extends his analysis of the question of agency (see ‘The Limits of Multitude’, NLR 35 ) by proposing a reconceptualization of the relation between collective will and invisible hand. Can bearings drawn from Hegel, Gramsci, Sartre indicate the route to a new global order through dissolution of the Western imperial state?

R. Taggart Murphy analyses the historical roots of Tokyo’s post-1868 geo-financial support for the ruling superpower, London or Washington, and the implications of China’s rise for Japanese strategy.

Terry Eagleton sets Samuel Beckett’s work for the French Resistance against his dogged refusal of all ideology. Traces of Ireland’s history—hunger, deferment, deflation, indeterminacy— in his exile art.

Also in NLR 40:

* Gadi Algazi on ‘Offshore Zionism’ in the Occupied Territories: a militarized alliance of state-subsidized software firms, real-estate developers and captive Orthodox labour.
* Immanuel Wallerstein surveys the global landscape that might emerge from a declining US hegemony.
* Sven Lütticken draws lessons from Hitchcock, Conrad and Benjamin on the poetics of suspense and surprise.
* Amit Chaudhuri unravels assumptions in the charge, levelled at India’s anglophone writers, of exoticizing the Subcontinent for Western markets.

Book Reviews:

* Benno Teschke on Herfried Münkler, Imperien . Can an ideal-type for empire be deduced from a historical sociology of Han, Persian, Roman, Ottoman and US models?
* Jan Breman on Mike Davis, Planet of Slums . Panorama of the epochal shift to a majority urban world, from favelas and gecekondular to villas miseria.
* Tariq Ali on John Lynch, Simón Bolívar: a Life . Portrait of the Liberator as pragmatist, and his legacy from the colonial Andes to the Caracas of today.

War for the Middle East

Despite the ‘greenlighting’ by Western and Arab powers, Israel war aims in Lebanon have been thwarted—at least temporarily—by fierce popular resistance. See Tariq Ali, ‘The War for the Middle East’.

Training "Managementul proiectelor-Eficienta si competitivitate"

Tryact HRD reia in perioada septembrie-octombri e 2006, in Bucuresti, seria de cursuri open-standard. Acestea se adreseaza acelor oameni si organizatii care considera invatarea continua un factor important pentru generarea si extinderea cunostintelor, pentru dezvoltarea abilitatilor personale si profesionale si sunt dispusi sa aloce resurse in acest scop.

Cursul "Managementul proiectelor - Eficienta si competitivitate" - propune o abordare flexibila, de organizare, implementare si conducere a activitatilor de orice fel, in concordanta cu cerintele unui mediu economic si social in schimbare in care se pune din ce in ce mai mult accent pe implicarea si responsabilizarea personala a individului.

In organizatii apar o multitudine de situatii care cer rezolvarea unei sarcini manageriale printr-o forma de organizare distincta, de proiect: lansarea de noi produse, introducerea de noi procedee sau sisteme, reorganizare, restructurare, configurarea sau reconfigurarea unor activitati si programe, organizarea unor evenimente etc. Un ansamblu de actiuni avand un obiectiv bine definit, buget si timp de derulare limitate si un caracter de unicitate sau noutate constituie un proiect a carui reusita depinde de voi si de modul in care il abordati.

Acest curs, ca parte a unui concept modern de management organizational, va poate aduce avantajul competitiv de a raspunde cu succes acestor provocari din activitatea profesionala.

Ca urmare a participarii la curs:

1. Veti defini probleme si structura idei pentru proiecte noi in diferite contexte socio-economice si organizationale (arborele problemelor si niveluri de interventie) ;
2. Veti formula obiective realiste, incadrate in timp si fezabile (metoda enuntului obiectivelor in 7 pasi, tehnica SMART);
3. Veti cunoaste etapele planificarii in managementul proiectelor, in functie de caracterisitici precum: scop si obiective, ciclu de viata, intrerdependente si unicitate, indicatori si indici de monitorizare si executie (lucrul cu matrice logice, diagrame de control);
4. Veti exersa abilitati in utilizarea unor instrumente si tehnici specifice de planificare (diagramele de tip Gantt si PERT sau analizele SWOT).

Sunteti invitati sa participati daca sunteti manageri de proiecte, studenti in ani terminali sau persoane care isi propun in plan profesional sa se dezvolte in aceasta directie, indiferent de experienta pe care o aveti in lucrul in proiecte si care doriti sa va exersati abilitatile si sa folositi instrumente specifice acestui domeniu.

Cele doua module propuse sunt:

1. Managementul proiectelor - Modul I "Planificare si implementare" - 7-8 septembrie 2006.

2. Managementul proiectelor - Modul II "Monitorizare, control, raportare" - 5-6 octombrie 2006.

Pentru fiecare din module Tryact HRD ofera diploma de participare.

Cursurile propuse au o durata de 2 zile si se vor desfasura la Hotel Ibis, in Bucuresti.

Taxa de participare pentru un modul este de 200 EURO/pers.+TVA. Pentru ambele module achitate, taxa este de 185 EURO/pers.+TVA. Pentru organizatiile care inscriu minimum 3 persoane la un curs, Tryact HRD ofera un discount de 15 - 20%, in functie de numarul de participanti inscrisi de fiecare organizatie. Astfel:

* 1pers/modul
=200EURO+TVA/ pers/modul
* 1pers/modulx2module =185EURO+TVA/ pers/modul
* 2pers/modul
=185EURO+TVA/ pers/modul
* 3pers/modul (sau 2persx2module) =170EURO+ TVA/pers/ modul
* 4pers/modul (sau 3persx2module) =160EURO+ TVA/pers/ modul
* 5pers/modul (sau 4persx2module) =150EURO+ TVA/pers/ modul

Taxa de participare acopera: sala de training si facilitati; materiale de training, pauzele de cafea si pranz (inclusiv menu-uri speciale de tip vegetarian sau pentru regim), onorariul pentru participarea unui trainer-consultant HRD. Taxa de participare nu acopera costuri de cazare si transport, bauturi alcoolice si menu-uri suplimentare.

European University Center for Peace Studies
Stadtschlaining, Austria

We wish to invite you to join a select group of 44 students from around the world in an intensive course in peace and conflict studies at the European University Center for Peace Studies (EPU) in Stadtschlaining, Austria.

All the courses are taught in English, by leading specialists in their field from around the world, including Johan Galtung, one of the founders of the academic discipline of peace research and frequent mediator in international conflicts. Studying with the founder of a new academic discipline is a rare opportunity, like studying philosophy with Socrates. EPU offers students a well-rounded program covering Peace with Security, Development, Freedom, Nature and Culture.

The Program, established in 1988 by Dr. Gerald Mader, Founder and President of the Austrian Study Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution, received the 1995 UNESCO Prize for Peace Education.

In addition to attending courses, students get to know each other closely and conclude friendships for a lifetime. In spring of 2006, we had 42 students from 29 countries from five continents, half from Africa, Asia and Latin America. Many former students said that studying at EPU was the best time of their life. Peace Studies are a highly interdisciplinary and growing academic field.

Students who have successfully completed our program are well grounded in both theory and practice to face the challenges of global conflict transformation. We are happy and proud that many of our former students now have thriving careers in international organizations, NGOs, business, universities, or work with their governments.


Introduction to Peace Studies, Cross-Cultural Communication, Peaceful Conflict Transformation, Human Rights, International Law, Governance, Participation, the Global Economy, Peacebuilding and Development, Safeguarding a Livable Environment, Demilitarization, Nonviolence, Security, United Nations Reform, Mediation, Peace Education, Peace and the Media, Reconciliation after Violence, Peace and Deep Culture. In addition, there are several academic excursions.

For a more detailed explanation of the program, a course calendar and a catalogue with course descriptions, see

Spring term 2007:

4 February - 28 April (Apply by 15 Sep. 2006)

Summer term 2007:

3 June - 25 August (Apply by 15 Jan. 2007)

Fall term 2007:

1 October - 22 December (Apply by 15 Mar. 2007)


Stadtschlaining is a beautiful, small and quiet medieval town with a 766-year old castle hosting a peace museum, in the foothills of the Alps, between Vienna and Graz, surrounded by hiking trails, with a hot spring and spa nearby. Classrooms and 44 single rooms with private bath are located in a new building.

PEACE LIBRARY: next to the castle is a famous peace library with 25,000 books and many films, most of them in English.


Students from any discipline interested in peace and conflict resolution, young diplomats, government officials, NGO members, teachers, journalists, lawyers, social workers, officers, psychologists, and anyone interested in solving conflicts by peaceful means. A first university degree (bachelors or equivalent) is required, and preferably some professional experience.


Those who successfully complete one trimester obtain a Certificate in Peace and Conflict Studies. Those who complete three trimesters (Fall, Spring and Summer) and write a thesis obtain a Master of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies, approved by the Austrian Ministry of Education. Students can begin in any of the three trimesters. The three trimesters need not be taken in succession, they can be spread over several years if preferred.


Euro 2500 tuition + Euro 1400 room rent per trimester, plus a Euro 700 fee for two thesis advisers for the Master of Arts program, or 12'400 Euro for the entire MA program.

A few highly competitive full scholarships are available for applicants from focal countries of Austria's development cooperation (for one trimester only). Some partial scholarships are also available.

If you have further questions, please contact Anita Flasch, EPU Administrative Assistant , Tel +43-3355-2498- 515 (mornings). We will be happy to answer your questions and help you.

PhD position in chemistry - Bergen, Norway

A 4 year position as research fellow is available in molecular modelling at the Department of Chemistry.

The project, Electron structure studies of atomic and molecular clusters, is part of the recently established strategy for nano-science at the University of Bergen,
and the candidate will take part in a cross-disciplinary team having a common goal of
development and application of computational models for the study of nano-scale phenomena.

The project will proceed as a collaboration between the research groups of

Open invitation for a Training Course: PUZZLE for YOUTH

“Would you like to be a part of the puzzle?”
19th - 26th March 2007
Training Course
Action 5.6

“Every single movement of the One uniting the parts had been repeated by the producer of the parts before oneself; each part that one held and caressed, each combination it tried and tried again, each touch, each intuition, each hope, each discouragement have been determined, calculated, analyzed by somebody else.”

“…magically, two parts that are united had become both a unity and even a hesitation, a blues and a source of anticipation…”

G. Perec

What is Puzzle?

Youth Works has several components like a puzzle. The most important one of these components is the visual communication tools. But mostly, youth workers and youth leaders are not perfect at this component. The fundamental theme of our training course (Action 5.6) is to take advantage of visual communication in the creation, evaluation and support of Youth Works and supporting youth workers.

We believe that the optimal way for the youth to acquire information and to have speech about some topics related with themselves depends on the transformation of every kind of information in a healthy and efficient way. For this reason, we are planning to focus on the visual communication components like web, magazine, newspaper, billboards, documental at the youth work.

ü The current status of youth work
ü Target body (disadvantageous youth)
ü Visual communication at the reaching to target body
ü Visual communication elements
ü Alternative propositions

The training course will take 7 days. Within these 7 days, in addition to the objectives above, it is also aimed at displaying a sample product that is based upon the idea of gaining an awareness of European Citizenship by the youths that have less opportunity and at the same time includes new activities intended appreciation of spare time by equal opportunity. The root of the specific work about these is below:

ü Context determination
ü Transfer of the message accurately
ü Accurate platform
ü Accurate solution for the accurate platform
ü How is finance provided?
ü How is something advertised?
ü Common solution for the sample product

Kusadasi is a pretty seaport city which is founded near a glittering bay. It is a touristical place and hosted lots of civilizations. You can see lots of historical places there: Ephesus which was, according to antique age writers, founded around 1000 B.C.; MadonnaÂ’s House, one of the holy places for Christians; Artemis Temple which is the first temple of the world built by marble etcÂ…

When we will visit historical and touristical places, at the same time we will taste Turkish KitchenÂ’s specials. Especially, Sirince, the Seljuk town, is a perfect synthesis of Greek-Turkish cultureÂ’s representative. Village offers lots of different tastes with its fine panorama for tourists.

When we are realizing our programme at the best bay of Aegean Sea we will organize our T.C. sessions at some historical and touristical places like as Dilek Peninsula, Women Beach, Golden Beach, Paradise Beach, Ephesus, Sirince Village sometimes in a ship, sometimes in a historical amphitheaters, sometimes in a historical village house and etc. and in this way we will learn with having a fun and we can add a different flavour to our courseÂ…

Please donÂ’t forget: FutureÂ’s Europe will be built up by young European Citizens J Future will be oursÂ…

Who can participate?
16 participants will participate in this T.C. Participants must be over 18 age and representative of a NGO. Besides, only Youth workers and Youth Leaders will be participate in this project.

Participation conditions:
If you participate in PUZZLE for YOUTH you should send filled, signed and stamped Part III which is in the attachment by fax to 00 90 312 359 26 82 and then you should fill and send the application form which is in the attachment to puzzle@kasifiz. biz by e-mail.

The projects will focus on the morphological and functional analyses of newly generated mouse models, the cellular and molecular characterization of associated immune responses, as well as the analysis of human samples.

Candidates must have a recent PhD and/or MD degree, a strong academic track record and demonstrated research productivity. Expertise in immunology, molecular biology, and in vivo mouse models is desirable.

Integration into a multidisciplinary team at CeMM of medical doctors, molecular biologists, mass spectrometricians, bioinformaticians, biochemists and chemists warrants high productivity, access to expertise and exposure to project management.

Launch of Africa's Lakes: Atlas of Our Changing Environment

Event: Poster Presentation Event: Press Conference
Date: Tuesday, 22 August 2006 Date: Wednesday, 23 August 2006
Time: 17:00 – 18:45 hrs. Time: 17:15 hrs.
Venue: Room 206 Venue: Glashall A+B

At: Stockholm City Conference Centre, Folkets Hus, Barnhusgatan, 12-14

Produced by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in cooperation with Belgian Development Cooperation, Africa’s Lakes: Atlas of Our Changing Environment compares and contrasts spectacular satellite images of the past few decades with contemporary ones.

Africa’s Lakes Atlas is an effort to increase local and international awareness of some natural and some human-made changes. This comprehensive collection of 60 images, 40 photos and 15 environmental maps demonstrates rapid shrinking of Lake Songor in Ghana, the extraordinary changes in the Zambezi river system beside more familiar images of the near 90 per cent shrinkage of Lake Chad. Other impacts, as seen from space, include the extensive deforestation around Lake Nakuru in Kenya, dramatic rejuvenation of the Djoudj Sanctuary wetlands in Senegal and farming of scorching hot desert in Toshka, Egypt.

Satellite measurements detailing the falling water levels of Lake Victoria are also mapped. Africa’s largest freshwater lake is now about a metre lower than it was in the early 1990s. The development of this visual proof of Africa’s environmental changes revolving around lakes involved the input of 42 contributors from 16 organizations in 11 countries including Cameroon, Canada, China, Ethiopia, India, Italy, Kenya, Madagascar, Nepal, the United States of America and Zimbabwe.
