Call for Proposals: Peer Learning, Exchange and Cooperation for Think Tanks

The Think Tank Fund and the East East: Partnership Beyond Borders Program of the Open Society Foundations offer support to bilateral partnerships between think tanks in Central and Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union and Southeast Asia, and between think tanks in Central and Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union and Latin America. The objective of this competition is to connect policy analysts and experts to promote global peer cooperation in analysis, debate, and comparative policy solutions.

Globalization processes have changed practices of applied social science and policy-relevant research. While the developed Western world retains its leadership role in policy-relevant research, other regions/continents are increasingly becoming laboratories not only for policy experimentation, but also for policy innovation. The purpose of this competition is to stimulate innovation and impact through direct bilateral peer cooperation, and to bring new thinking and innovative dialogue and debate to issues relevant to the Open Society Foundations

Eligible Regions
Central and Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union, Southeast Asia, and/or Latin America.

The deadline for submission of concept papers is September 30, 2011.

For further information and application guidelines please see the Peer Learning, Exchange and Cooperation for Think Tanks proposal guidelines.

The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. To achieve this mission, the Foundations seek to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights. On a local level, the Open Society Foundations implement a range of initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media. At the same time, we build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information. The Foundations place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities.
Investor and philanthropist George Soros established the Open Society Foundations, starting in 1984, to help countries make the transition from communism. Our activities have grown to encompass the United States and more than 70 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Each foundation relies on the expertise of boards composed of eminent citizens who determine individual agendas based on local priorities.
