‘Dealing with the Past’ – Research Fellowship in Berlin
Deadline: 31 August 2015
Open to: scholars and experts who can demonstrate an established record
relating to Dealing with the Past
Fellowship: monthly stipend which covers the fellow’s living expenses
The Robert Bosch Academy is a center for
interdisciplinary, multilateral dialogue, and solutions-oriented cooperation on
the global challenges of the 21st century. It provides distinguished
decision-makers and experts from around the world with the opportunity to spend
a sabbatical in Berlin and to participate in public life in the
capital and beyond. The Robert Bosch Academy in Berlin is now offering an
in-residence Research Fellowship “Dealing with the Past”.
Dealing with a legacy of gross human rights violations
is one of the greatest challenges societies are facing in the aftermath of
violent conflict. Research suggests that there is a relationship between the
ability to address this legacy in a comprehensive and inclusive manner and the
potential to develop sustainable peace. The Robert Bosch Academy invites
scholars and experts to submit a project proposal concerning (but not limited
to) some of the following questions:
How has the field of Dealing with the Past evolved as a
conceptual approach and as a policy field over the last decades? What are the
most important changes in the development of the field in recent years?
What are specific characteristics of Dealing with the Past
and where can difficulties in its definitions and limitations in its
understanding be identified?
What are best practices and what are the most difficult
challenges of Dealing with the past in different (post-)conflict societies?
Which are the main advocacy issues related to Dealing with
the Past in order to bring more attention on the global agenda and to create
concrete impact in this area? Which of these issues connect a number of
different (post-)conflict regions and should therefore be addressed in a joint
effort on the international level?
Which are the existing transnational networks related to
Dealing with the Past, what are their different missions and which actors are
The Research Fellowship targets scholars and experts who
conduct research and work on specific issues relevant to the Robert Bosch
Academy’s portfolio. Preference will be given to those applicants
who can demonstrate an established record relating to Dealing with the Past as
scholar or practitioner with a broad international understanding beyond
regional expertise. Specific areas or regions of knowledge as well as connected
fields of interest are to be indicated nonetheless. The Fellow is expected to
disseminate the results of their research not only through publications, but
also through feeding into their future career after the end of the Fellowship.
The Fellowship offers a six months research leave with
a monthly stipend being provided which covers the fellow’s living
expenses. A budget for travel and conferences can be made available.
How to apply?
The deadline for applications is 31 August 2015. To
apply for a Research Fellowship please send your CV, a motivation letter,
a list of publications and/or other references as well as a short project
proposal (max. 4 pages) to Verena Heinzel, Program Officer at the Berlin
Representative Office of Robert Bosch Stiftung (firstname.lastname@example.org).
