Atkin Fellowship for Arab-Israeli Dialogue–Now Recruiting

Jump to Comments

The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) is offering young leaders from Israel and the Arab world the opportunity to come to London for a period of four months in order to develop their ideas on how to further peace and mutual understanding in the Middle East through research, debate and constructive dialogue in a neutral political environment.

The Atkin Fellowship is aimed at promoting new thinking among young leaders–typically from government, business, academia, and the media–who occupy positions from which they can shape politics and public opinion in Israel and the Arab world. Applicants must be graduates; based in the Middle East at the time of their application; and fluent English speakers.

Fellows will be based at the ICSR offices at King’s College London and  receive a stipend to cover their accommodation, living costs and travel. They are expected to complete a paper dealing with one aspect of the current conflict. In addition, they will promote information and education issues in the region by making themselves available for debate and consultation, as well as jointly organize a series of seminars dealing with aspects of the current upheavals in the Middle East

The ICSR is currently recruiting two Atkin Fellows for the period from 1 October 2011 to 31 January 2012, as well as two Atkin Fellows for the period from 1 February 2012 to 31 May 2012.

Deadline for Applications is June 13, 2011.
