Research proposal areas Fellowship proposals must show a clear linkage to one of the Carnegie Council's ongoing research themes: 1) Human Rights http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/programs/callfellows.html#human rights In line with the goals of the Council's Human Rights Initiative (http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/themes/humanrights.html), we are seeking applicants in the field of human rights to carry out field-based research that examines existing levels of public legitimacy for a specific human rights concern and/or how to enhance public legitimacy for that concern. Research projects may involve an examination of the development of local norms -- in particular, how local norms are influenced by international norms and the international human rights movement. Applications from individuals based in non-Western and developing countries are particularly encouraged. Applicants should be a national of, or have long-term experience in, the country of research as well as local language fluency. 2) Environmental Values http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/programs/callfellows.html#environment Fellowship applicants should address one of two potential areas: 1. environmental values and policy-making 2. international environmental justice When devising proposals related to environmental values, applicants should refer to the Council's project "Understanding Values: A Comparative Study of Values in Environmental Policy Making in China, India, Japan and the United States" (http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/themes/environment.html). In the area of international environmental justice, the program is interested in theoretical and empirical projects on the application of the concept of international environmental justice and the expansion internationally of the environmental justice movement. 3) The Future of Conflict Prevention http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/programs/callfellows.html#conflict Applicants should be scholars or practitioners involved in research or analysis related to the field of international conflict prevention. Research topics should demonstrate a familiarity with emerging literature and theory on conflict prevention and should be focused on a particular region or country that is in, or has experienced, deadly conflict in the last ten years. Examples of potential project themes are: 1. A critical examination of existing strategies and tools of conflict prevention, such as economic sanctions, Track II diplomacy, and/or targeted development aid. 2. An exploration of new or emerging approaches to the prevention of deadly conflict. 3. An analysis of the role of international actors in a deadly conflict. 4. A study of the relationship between local and international actors in regions affected by conflict. New approaches and perspectives on conflict prevention are also welcome, in line with the goals of the Council's Conflict Prevention Program (http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/themes/conflictprev.html). 4) Justice and the World Economy http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/programs/callfellows.html#justice Applicants interested in justice and the world economy might develop a project to explore one or more of the following: 1. the normative dimensions of globalization. 2. the changes wrought by globalization on any key economic and political actor with regard to notions of justice and/or responsibility. 3. new definitions of (and practices in) the public and private spheres as they related to global economic policy. 4. more specifically, the effect of globalization on multinationals and their involvement in public-private partnerships and corporate voluntary initiatives. Accordingly, applicants should be in a position to assess globalization and its relationship to pressing concerns in society, whether from the inside -- as policy-makers, activists, business people, or journalists -- or from the outside (as social scientists). New geographic, gender, and/or professional perspectives, in line with the aims of the Council's program on Justice and the World Economy (http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/themes/justice.html), are especially welcome. 5) History and the Politics of Reconciliation http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/programs/callfellows.html#history Applicants in the field of reconciliation should be actively involved in research and analysis of how societies come to terms with past injustices and how long-term reconciliation among former enemies (within or among nations and faiths) can be promoted. Their research topics should be relevant to the concerns of the Council's Project on History and the Politics of Reconciliation (http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/themes/histrecintro.html). Examples of such topics include: 1. the ethical dilemmas faced when reckoning with the past. 2. the role of public education in examining a difficult history and promoting reconciliation, including education through schools and museums. 3. the roles of different actors in promoting reconciliation, including the state, religious organizations, civil society organization, international organizations. 4. the national and international politics of history textbooks and places of commemoration.
