Objectives

The Ilko Kucheriv Democracy Fellowship Programme will assist the advancement of democratic practices in
transitional democracies by empowering professionals of independent democracy and human rights
advocacy NGOs and think-tanks from the CIS region. Fellows from the CIS region will gain expertise from
well-established independent think tanks in the EU with experience of democratic transformation and
protection of human rights.

The programme will provide mentoring and networking opportunities for five fellows from the CIS countries
with the aim to gain practical skills, interact with other researchers, and exchange practices with wellestablished
think-tanks and NGOs in the EU. The fellowships should focus on specific democratic transformation issues (e.g. media freedom, constitutional law, parliamentary democracy, judiciary, public opinion research, electoral processes, free and fair elections, building democratic awareness among the general public, etc.) 

Deadline for applications: 

Midnight, Central European Time (CET), Friday 2 September 2011
