UNAOC Fellowship Program 2015 For Participants From Middle East & North Africa (MENA)

UNAOC Fellowship Program 2015 For Participants From Middle East & North Africa (MENA)

Deadline: July 10, 2015

The United Nations Alliance Of Civilizations is now selecting emerging leaders and young professionals from the Middle East, North Africa to participate in the 2015 edition of the Fellowship Programme. The objective of this fellowship is to foster intercultural dialogue and interfaith understanding.

10-12 participants from North Africa and the Middle east will travel to Europe and North America (EUNA) for 2 weeks. During their trip, participants will interact with actors from various backgrounds in order to get an extensive grasp of their host country’s culture, politics, society, religion, media and more.

Participants’ trip will will focus on a specific sub-theme: Migration and Integration. There are four main reasons behind such choice.

  1. Migration is one of UNAOC main pillars of action (along with Youth, Education, and Media).
  2. This topic is at the center of current events in EUNA countries where the issue has become a focus of attention in media and political debates.
  3. It remains broad enough to allow interaction with a wide range of actors, while ensuring effective exchanges and activities on the ground and across countries.
  4. An important number of Alumni are themselves involved in the field of Migration and Integration.
