Balkan Youth Forum 2012, Kragujevac, Serbia 05-09. April 2012

  • Balkan Youth Forum (BYF) is a five-day international conference that will be held from 5th to 9th of April 2012 in Kragujevac (SERBIA). BYF conference is free, and it is organized for students (bachelor and master) that are particularly interested in topics like regional integration and cooperation between Balkan countries.
    Participants will have opportunity to hear most prominent speakers, to discuss and work in small groups and to be involved in many social activities.
    The application deadline is February 29 (Wednesday) 2012, before 23:59 o’clock. We strongly encourage all application materials be submitted as soon as possible, because they are being reveiwed on a rolling basis.

    The aim of this forum is to spread awareness of significance and necessity of regional cooperation among students by battling numerous prejudices through getting to know each other and mutual interaction. The last two decades have dealt a significant blow to the countries of the region, as a consequence of numerous factors, including wars, transition of states towards capitalist society and the process of joining the European Union. Even though these countries find themselves in different phases of the above mentioned processes, they will and already share the same problems. Limited political influence and economic power of individual states imply the necessity of further bonding, so that the entire region could enter the global development scheme. Although the younger generations will also be both subjects and objects of this integration in the near future, they have been overlooked by the regional initiatives that have been raised so far.
    Topics will be divided into two modules:
    1. Economic aspects of regional integration,
    2. Political aspects of regional integration.
    Each module will be envisioned and led by the eminent university professors, politicians and managers from the Balkan region.
    Program will consist of five main parts:
    1) Activities aimed at getting to know each other and building a team spirit: Opening exercises – getting to know each other – games or remembering the names of all the members of a committee, exercises in removing barriers in communication, exercises in building and strengthening trust within a group, problem solving exercises and games whose sole purpose is fun and recreation. It is by these activities that the participants of the conference will, through various simulations, be directed to cooperation as the most efficient way to solve problems.
    2) Brief glance at the history from the 19th century onward: Students will be offered at least two views of the region’s history, through lectures of two professors. Different approaches to history have so far been one of the major obstacles to building a solid foundation of long term cooperation and integration. The goal of these lectures is to accept different views of specific events and the possibility of facing historical facts that are not equally available in different countries.
    3) Lectures within modules for students of various faculties. Participants of the conference will attend lectures of their respective professional fields. For example, economists will hear about perspectives of economic cooperation within a region through CEFTA agreement and the significance of that cooperation for competitiveness at the international market. Lectures arranged in such modules will provide for dealing with topics that require knowledge, and which will enable the deligates to tackle issues they so far haven’t had the chance to hear about at the faculty.
    4) Workshops and round tables will provide the attendants with opportunities to discuss the topics of the conference themselves, but also to hear discussions of relevant guests from the world of politics, economy and the law about the past, present and the future of cooperation in the region. Confronting attitudes will enable the students to form their own standpoints and form a critical view of a multitude of issues. In addition to this, they will also be given the opportunity to improve their skills in public debate and self-expression.
    5) Adoption of resolutions (through simulation of work of European parliament): On the last day of conference students will be divided into six committees, which will threat different problems in the region. Inside every committee delegates will discuss about problems in the region and then form resolutions in order to solve them, although even highest country officials could not. After that, these resolutions will be presented to general assembly that will discuss it and adopt it or not in the end. Adopted resolutions will be sent to national parliaments on Balkan. Besides learning how European Parliament works, delegates will have a chance to present a joint youth opinion about these topics.
    Conference is free for all participants. Transportation form Belgrade to Kragujevac and back will be provide. Hotel Šumarice has all necesarry infrastructure including capacity and room structure, conference rooms and adequate grounds for outdoor activities which makes it a perfect location.

CfA Berlin Summer School in Social Sciences

Berlin Summer School in Social Sciences – Linking Theory and Empirical
Research
Berlin, July 15-27, 2012

The Berlin Summer School in Social Sciences – Linking Theory and Empirical
Research aims at promoting young researchers by strengthening their
methodological understanding in linking theory and empirical research.

In a first step, we tackle the key methodological challenges of
concept-building, causation and micro-macro-linkage that occur in all
research efforts and aim at a clarification of the epistemological
implications underlying methodological paradigms. In a second step, we
apply these methodological considerations by looking at how central
empirical fields of research in political science and sociology have dealt
with these challenges and – by referring to selected empirical studies –
what solutions have been found to overcome them. Furthermore, participants
are provided with hands-on research advice and have the opportunity to
present their own work and approaches to these issues.

The Berlin Summer School is a joint endeavor of two of Germany’s leading
social science institutions, the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences
(BGSS) at Humboldt-UniversitätzuBerlin and the Social Science Research
Center Berlin (WZB).

The two-week summer school both attracts internationally renowned scholars
and draws on Berlin-based faculty. Among the confirmed international
lecturers are Delia Baldassarri (Princeton University), Peter Bearman
(Columbia University), Mark Bevir (UC Berkeley), Craig Calhoun (NYU/LSE),
Donatella Della Porta (EUI), Ronald Inglehart (University of Michigan),
and Klaus von Beyme (Universität Heidelberg).

The international summer school is open to thirty PhD candidates. Due to
generous funding by the BGSS and the WZB, there will be no tuition fee. We
have applied for additional funding and thus might be able to cover travel
and accommodation costs for all participants. A decision is expected soon.
Five ECTS Credit Points can be granted upon successful completion.

The call for applications has opened. Applications can be submitted online
via the application form until March 31, 2012.

Call for Applications for consultancy with UNEP International Environmental Technology Centre

Vacancy Announcement for a Consultancy*

*Duty station:*  Osaka, Japan

*Unit:                *International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC)

Division for Technology, Industry and Economics (DTIE)

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

probationary)

*Conditions:*    Full time

*Background*


The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) International Environmental
Technology Centre (IETC) promotes and implements environmentally sound
technologies (ESTs), including management systems for sustainable
production and consumption. In particular, IETC focuses on waste management
issues, including technology support, demonstration/pilot projects,
capacity building, and advisory services, IETC covers a wide range of waste
streams and cross-cutting issues, e.g. integrated solid waste management
(ISWM), e-waste, waste plastics, waste agricultural biomass, health care
waste, waste oils. IETC is located in Osaka, Japan. For further
information, please see: http://www.unep.or.jp/



Waste management has been taken up as a priority by international
organizations, and various stakeholders are already engaged in waste
management activities all over the world. However, to date, these
activities have followed a rather sectoral and piecemeal approach, leading
to duplication of efforts and competing rather than complementing
activities. To avoid duplication, make existing efforts more effective by
enhancing cooperation, and to identify and fill information gaps, UNEP
started a series of consultations leading to the launch of the Global
Partnership on Waste Management (GPWM) in November 2010.

The GPWM is a voluntary and collaborative relationship between various
international stakeholders, in which all participants agree to work
together and coordinate activities in a systematic way to enhance
international cooperation and avoid duplication of efforts. The GPWM serves
as a coordination forum for various international stakeholders, including
bodies of the UN system and different parts of UNEP, such as the
Secretariats of the Basel Convention, the Division of Technology, Industry
and Economics (DTIE) (Sustainable Consumption and Production Branch (SCP),
IETC, Chemicals Branch), and the Division of Environmental Policy
Implementation (DEPI).


With the launch of the GPWM, UNEP responds to Governing Council decisions
24/5 and 25/8, calling for a holistic and integrated approach on waste
management. In 2011, UNEP Governing Council acknowledged the establishment
of the GPWM in its decision 26/3. The secretariat of the GPWM is hosted by
IETC. The GPWM currently has six sponsored focal areas, which are led by
different organizations, namely: integrated solid waste management (ISWM)
(IETC), e-waste (United Nations Industrial Development Organization –
UNIDO), waste agricultural biomass (IETC), waste and climate change
(International Solid Waste Association – ISWA), marine litter (UNEP DEPI),
waste minimization (UNEP DTIE/SCP).



*Tasks and Responsibilities*


Under the overall supervision of the Director of IETC and the under the
direct supervision of the Programme Officer responsible for GPWM, the
consultant will assist in implementing the partnership.  In particular, the
responsibilities of the consultant, will include, but are not limited to,
the following:
