Call for Applications - Humanity in Action Fellowship Programs 2012

Students and recent graduates from (or with residency in) Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Poland, Ukraine, France, Denmark and The Netherlands are invited!

HIA is an international educational organization that engages, inspires, and continuously develops a network of students, young professionals, and established leaders committed to promoting human rights—in their own communities and around the world.

Humanity in Action (HIA) fellowship programs will take place for five weeks in the summer of 2012 in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, and Warsaw.
Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris/Copenhagen programs: June 1 – July 1, 2012
Warsaw program: June 25 – July 22, 2012

The 3rd International HIA Conference (June 28 – July 1, 2012) is integrated into all the five programs. This conference brings together all 110 participants of the programs and the HIA alumni networks.

Each program is highly interdisciplinary, and features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians, and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit and community organizations, museums, and memorials. The programs seek to bridge the gap between theory and practice and highlight different models of action to remedy injustice.

The objective of the HIA fellowship is to facilitate a collective exploration of the social and political roots of discrimination, as well as to provide a forum where potential solutions can be considered and discussed. The programs are also intended to instill a responsibility among HIA Fellows to recognize and address the need to protect minorities and promote human rights—in their own communities and around the world.

Please visit the HIA website for detailed information.

We are looking forward to your application!
