Exposure visit to the MENA region:

15 emerging leaders from the EUNA region will be invited on an exposure visit to three or four countries in the MENA region that will take place during the first half of December 2014.

Selection of emerging leaders from Europe and North America to be invited on an exposure visit to three or four countries in the Middle East and North Africa during the first half of December 2014.

The Fellowship Programme is based on the recognition that intercultural exposure and dialogue are powerful tools to generate nuanced positions and mutual understanding as the basis for positive and respectful cooperation between cultures. In particular, the Fellowship Programme intends to facilitate positive cooperation and understanding between the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Europe and North America (EUNA) by supporting emerging leaders from these regions to develop a nuanced understanding of each other.

Since its launch in 2010, the Fellowship Programme has provided emerging leaders from these societies with opportunities to get more familiar with the diverse realities and cultural environments of other cultures. The Fellowship programme counts on an active alumni network of 110 emerging leaders across the two regions.

The Fellowship Programme is made possible thanks to a grant of the German Federal Foreign Office. It is has been supported throughout the years by the Institute for International Education (IIE), the Islamic Education Scientific Organization (ISESCO), the League of Arab States, the Qatar Committee for the Alliance of Civilizations, the British Council, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Guerrand-Hermes foundation.

Eligibility Criteria

  • National of a North American or European country
  • 26-38 years old
  • Fluent in written and spoken English
  • Possess a passport valid at least 6 months beyond December 2014
  • Available to travel for a period of up to 15 days in the first half of December 2014 as scheduled by UNAOC
  • Professional activity in one of these areas: civil society organizations, traditional and social media, politics, government, community movements/initiatives, faith based organizations, social impact entrepreneurship, academia, think tanks or other field relevant to the objective of the programme.

For this fellowship North America will include the USA and Canada.

For this fellowship Europe refers to Geographical Europe.

Business persons or applicants working in the private sector will have to clearly demonstrate the social impact and community orientation of their activity or that of their business.

The Fellowship Programme is looking for EUNA individuals that have an existing interest for the MENA region as a means to ensure future engagement with MENA will actually take place. At the same time, it is also looking for individuals who will gain from the experience of being exposed to the MENA region.

Therefore individuals that have had an active and significant engagement with the MENA region might not be selected on the base that the Fellowship programme will have a minimal impact on them given that they already have a deep
