2009 IREX/WWC Regional Policy Symposium:

Prospects and Challenges for the First Post-Communist Generation: Young People Today in Eurasia and Eastern Europe

Application Deadline: December 1, 2008

IREX (The International Research & Exchanges Board)—in collaboration with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars’ Kennan Institute (WWC)—will be administering a research symposium this spring that will examine issues concerning youth in Eurasia and Eastern Europe from multi-disciplinary perspectives.

The research symposium, supported by the United States Department of State (Title VIII Program), will bring American junior and senior scholars and members of the policy community together to study and discuss timely topics as they relate to youth in these regions. Possible topics may include: economic trends; political parties; education reform; public health; reproductive trends; trafficking and other cross-border criminal activity; and other related topics.

Junior scholars will be chosen based on a national competition to present their current research on the topic of the Symposium. Grants will be awarded to approximately ten junior scholars.

The Symposium is scheduled to take place in early April 2009 in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area and will involve two full days of reviews of current research projects, roundtable discussions, and the development of policy recommendations.

Technical Eligibility Requirements:
* Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents of the United States who are currently residing in the US.

Grant Provisions:
