Global Challenges Fellowship Program (GCFP) – 2015

The aim of the Global Challenges Fellowship Program (GCFP) is to invite researchers from nine emerging countries to the School of Public Policy at Central European University (SPP) and the Central European University Institute for Advanced Study (CEU IAS) in Budapest, Hungary and the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) in Berlin, Germany to foster new forms of collaboration. This serves the ultimate purpose of forging closer ties between Western and non-Western researchers and offering fresh perspectives on some of the world’s most pressing public policy challenges, challenges which can only be resolved together.

The fellows will spend a total of approximately 7-8 months as Global Challenges Fellows (GCF) doing analytical and empirical work in Budapest, and engaging with policy practitioners at GPPi in Berlin. While the exact timetable depends on the specifications of each research project, the majority of time (about 75%) will be spent in Budapest.

The program will support two junior and two senior Fellows per year. They will publish journal articles and/or policy papers and will participate in a series of small working group-style discussions and seminars. Fellows will work within one of the following focal research areas:

  • Peace & security
  • Humanitarian assistance & human rights
  • Development & good governance
  • Internet governance
  • Changing global institutions

The Global Challenges Fellowship Program is implemented with generous support from the Volkswagen Foundation.

Who can apply?
The GCFP brings researchers from emerging economies outside the “established West” to SPP and CEU IAS as well as to GPPi. The focus will be on researchers (in particular those in the field of public policy) from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, and Turkey. The researchers must be resident in these countries—Chinese or Indian nationals working permanently in the US, for example, are not eligible for the program.

Selection Criteria
The selection is based on good publication record, promising research agenda, relevance and feasibility of the proposed project, record of policy engagement and English language proficiency.
