Call for Applications: LACalytics

IFAIR is pleased to announce the start of applications for the LACalytics programm, taking place between January and October 2016. The project will bring together young researchers and experts from Europe and Latin America as well as the Caribbean in order to discuss current topics in Latin American politics, economics and social life as well as EU-LAC relations which affect the youth in Latin America. LACalytics provides a unique perspective on these topics by analyzing them through the lens of young people.

The program delivers twenty online publications on four macro-themes (economics, politics, environment and civil society) written by bi-regional teams of young thinkers from the EU and LAC. The articles will be published on our open think tank ifair.eu as well as in cooperation with partner platforms such as the Diplomatic Magazine. Analyses can range from the EU and LAC´s role in fighting climate change to the influence of social movements in the two regions to the effects of TTIP on LAC´s youth. The best contributions will additionally be featured in a printed policy-paper publication, which will be presented to principal stakeholders of the EU-LAC partnership during a final conference in October 2016. Altogether, LACalytics is IFAIR´s most recent initiative aiming to increase interregional understanding as well as to raise young people’s impact on foreign policy making.

The event is supported by a range of high-profile researchers, practitioners and organizations from Europe and Latin America. It is under the patronage of Mr Dieter Lamlé, the Regional Re- presentative for Latin America and the Caribbean of the German Federal Foreign Office.

Who can apply?

We encourage applications from students and recently graduated researchers, as well as young practitioners in EU-LAC relations or the 4 policy areas. Applicants should be from an EU or LAC country; have a background in International Relations or disciplines related to the 4 policy fields (politics, economics, environment, civil society); and have excellent working knowledge of either German, English, Spanish or Portuguese.

How to apply?

      Dear Romina,

      Participation in the LACalytics program does neither qualify as an internship nor will you get any renumeration as for a paid job. However, you will get the chance to publish your article on various online platforms as well as in a printed policy paper. The authors of the best articles will additionally be chosen to participate in a final conference in October 2016 where they present their results to political stakeholders and the civil society.

      We’re looking forward to receiving your application.

      Best regards,
      Johannes for IFAIR e.V.
