Frontier Europe Fellowship, Frontier Europe Initiative

About the Initiative

The MEI Frontier Europe Initiative was established in November 2019. The program explores the web of relationships between the Middle East and its northeastern frontier through research, conferences, education, and cultural activities. The initiative informs and engages diverse stakeholders — government, industry, media, and the NGO sector — about the linkages between the Middle East, especially the northern tier of Turkey and Iran, and its near neighbors in Southeastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, as well as the evolving connections and shared concerns between the Middle East and this complex region. 

Frontier Europe covers: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Romania, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

About the Fellowship

For six months, six non-resident fellows will have the opportunity to work with MEI experts and be affiliated with the MEI Frontier Europe Initiative. Starting in May 2020, fellows will be expected to produce monthly articles under their own names on the MEI website. In addition, they must produce a final report on a topic of their choosing at the end of the six months. The MEI Frontier Europe Regional Fellowship is a valuable opportunity for emerging scholars from the region to showcase their work, amplify their voice, and collaborate with respected experts in the field of international affairs.

MEI will provide a stipend for the course of the fellowship.
