New Publication: Dealing with the Past in the Context of Ethnonation

Dear colleagues and friends,

we are pleased to announce following publication:

Ivana Franovic:
Dealing with the Past in the Context of Ethnonationalism. The Case of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia
Berghof Occasional Paper 29

Abstract:
This paper offers an extensive analysis of the potentials and obstacles for peacebuilding processes in the triangle Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia. The author convincingly argues that facing the past presents an indispensable precondition for sustainable peace in the region of former Yugoslavia. After outlining the different forms and extents of human suffering during the wars in former Yugoslavia, the author pinpoints ethnonationalism as one of the main causes for the armed conflicts in the region. Current concepts of peacebuilding and reconciliation are highlighted against the background of war and postwar realities.
Furthermore, the author accurately elaborates initiatives of transitional justice and dealing with the past in the region, revealing obstacles, encouraging results and future challenges on governmental and non-governmental levels. Based on these insights, the author concludes her study with a set of suggestions for future actions and processes requisite for a lasting peace in ex-Yugoslavia which include public acknowledgement, deconstruction of the myth of ethnic war, reconstructing identities and de-victimisation. According to the author, such overwhelming challenges can only be mastered if alliances for peacebuilding between all relevant actors on state and societal level are formed.

The author:
Ivana Franovic is a peace activist from Belgrade. For the last decade she has been a team member of the Centre for Nonviolent Action, which has offices in Sarajevo and Belgrade. She is active in the field of peacebuilding, dealing with the past and nonviolent conflict transformation on the grass-root and middle levels of society in the region of former Yugoslavia. She holds an MA degree in Peace and Reconciliation Studies from Coventry University (UK). She has previously published "I cannot feel well if my neighbour does not" (co-edited with Helena Rill, 2005) and
contributes a chapter to Howard Clark, ed., forthcoming. "Unarmed Resistance and Global Solidarity". London: Pluto Press, 2009.

PhD Studentship, University of Cambridge: History of the Placenta since 1750

PhD Studentship, University of Cambridge: History of the Placenta since 1750

Supervisors: Martin H. Johnson and Nick Hopwood

The Centre for Trophoblast Research at the University of Cambridge aims to fund up to three PhD studentships at Wellcome Trust rates starting in October 2009 for three years of full-time research . We are offering a project on the history of the placenta.

The placenta has a rich and important past that has yet to attract sustained historical attention. Possible projects could focus on such various aspects as anatomy, physiology and evolution, pathological examination and legal regulation, midwifery, obstetric and lay practices, and claims as to the placenta's special powers. There is wide scope to choose a topic of interest in a period since 1750 and
with an appropriate geographical location.

Supervision will be provided by Martin H. Johnson (Physiology, Development and Neuroscience) and Nick Hopwood (History and Philosophy of Science). The project will benefit from participation in the University's programme of historical research on generation and reproduction and specifically on embryology.

Interested students (UK, EU or overseas) should have at least a high upper second (or equivalent) in a first degree, preferably in the biological sciences, and ideally also a strong performance in a master's in history of science and/or medicine. We invite initial expressions of interest, including a CV and sample of written work, by 10 December 2008 for a Centre deadline of 9 January and interview
on 28 January 2009.

2 Ph.D. positions at the Economic Department of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands)

Ph.D. economics

Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands)

2 Ph.D. positions at the Economic Department of the Erasmus University

Context. The candidates for this project will participate in the D&U (Decision-and- Uncertainty; http://people. few.eur.nl/ wakker/du/ links.htm) group. We are an enthusiastic and internationally active group, specialized in decision theory, and we collaborate with psychologists, mathematicians, management scientists, and health economists.

The Economics Department of the Erasmus University has more than 4000 students, and employs over 400 people. It has a long tradition of research in a wide range of areas. Most of the research takes place within the Tinbergen Institute in economics (http://www.tinberge n.nl) and the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM;
http://www.erim. eur.nl/ERIM).

Title of the Project. Risk and Rationality: Using Empirical Findings from Prospect Theory to Improve Rational Decisions in Health and Other Fields.

Description. Prospect theory, the model for decision under risk introduced by Kahneman & Tversky (1979), is immensely popular in many fields. Its importance was recognized through the 2002 Nobel prize in economics. Their paper is the 2nd most cited paper published in any economic journal (see Table A.10 on p. 88 at
http://homepages. ulb.ac.be/ ~tcoupe/updatere vealedperformanc es.pdf).

Prospect theory assumes that, besides (i) rational factors based on utility and additive probabilities that are studied in classical approaches, other factors play a role. Such factors are (ii) people's sensitivity towards (lack of) information, modeled through subjective probabilities that may be nonadditive, and (iii) loss aversion-the special sensitivity of people towards losses. These factors shed, for
instance, new light on the irrational reactions of people to financial risks and on the damages that can result from such irrationalities. Remarkably, only few theoretical results have been developed for prospect theory, and empirical tests have so far been based on ad hoc interpretations. This project will develop both theoretical foundations and critical empirical tests for risk and for ambiguity (unknown probabilities) . It applies its findings primarily to the health domain, and further to insurance, experimental economics, finance, psychological judgment and decision making, and/or other areas, depending on the candidate's background and interests.

Requirements. The desired candidates have a Master's degree in a quantitative discipline. Knowledge of mathematics, health economics, game theory, statistics, econometric analyses, psychological judgment and decision, and/or programming skills are a plus.

Conditions. We search for two candidates. The positions will be for a maximum of four years. The gross monthly salary will be minimally € 2000 in the first year, increasing to € 2,558 in the fourth year. There will also be an 8% holiday allowance.

Applications. Please email applications, including a cover letter (explanaining why you and this position fit together), and a CV, to Peter Wakker (Wakker [at] few.eur.nl) as soon as possible. In the case of future rounds we will ask for letters of recommendation.

Further Information can be obtained from either of the two supervisors, namely

Professor Peter Wakker (http://people. few.eur.nl/ wakker/index. html) and
Professor Han Bleichrodt (http://people. few.eur.nl/ bleichrodt).

Application has to be received by 31. January 2009.

Scholarships for the Graduate Program in Economics and Finance - CEMFI, Madrid (Spain)

At CEMFI we train students for careers as professional or academic economists. Our graduates acquire the quantitative tools and research skills to work as economists in business, finance, government, and academia.

The basic graduate offering at CEMFI is its highly prestigious Master in Economics and Finance. Unlike many Master programs in the US and elsewhere, ours is self-contained and offers a well respected qualification.

CEMFI grants a subset of its Master students exemptions from the tuition fee and/or scholarships for living expenses amounting up to EUR 10,000 per year. They are granted according to academic merit. In previous years, the Fundación Carolina, in cooperation with the Fundación BBVA, has endowed several scholarships for Latin American students of the Master. If new grants are endowed, they will be announced on CEMFI’s web page.

An important distinguishing feature of our Master is that it lasts for two years, the second being essential for shaping the skills of our graduates. The first year consists of basic graduate coursework and some optional subjects. The second year includes specialized courses and research training through a Master thesis. Our ratio of students to faculty is between four and five. Thus we can devote a lot of attention to each student. This is particularly important for the Master thesis,
where the faculty provides guidance to a unique degree.

Members of CEMFI’s faculty publish in top journals and are research leaders in their fields. They are also editors of prestigious journals and are key players at leading learned societies such as the European Economic Association and the Econometric Society.

Our Master students get very good jobs as economists. For example, in positions dealing with portfolio and risk management, macroeconomic forecasting, policy evaluation, or microeconomic consultancy. CEMFI has been building a reputation for more than 20 years and a degree from CEMFI provides a strong signal of quality, regularly confirmed by the market. Moreover, we run an experienced and efficient job placement service.

Students interested in furthering their research training, either because they aim for a professional career with a stronger research content or because they aim for an academic position, will continue to develop their research skills for another three years and complete the PhD program. Graduates from CEMFI’s PhD program have published papers from their dissertation in top journals and we have an excellent record in the PhD job market.

Admission to the PhD program at CEMFI is through the Master. All students admitted to the PhD program obtain a scholarship, either from an external source or from CEMFI. For more information on admission and scholarship applications, please visit: http://www.cemfi. es. For any queries, feel free to contact: admissions@cemfi. es.

Application has to be received by 6. April 2009.
