The Corridors Fellowship offers young and established scholars from conflict-affected societies in the post-Soviet space the opportunity for a research stay at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena (Germany) Moreover, the program aims to facilitate academic exchange as well as to enhance dialogue and knowledge transfer. In addition, they strive to deepen practical cooperation between scholars from the South Caucasus, Eastern Europe and Germany.
Applications are welcomed from scholars in the field of social science and neighbouring disciplines with a keen interest in peace and conflict studies.
Furthermore, Corridors is an initiative developed in 2016 at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) in Regensburg (Germany), that aims to foster dialogue and cooperation between societies affected by protracted conflicts in the post-Soviet space and beyond. The motivation came from two main findings of our research on protracted conflicts. Firstly, the increasing tensions at different levels of conflict, the collective alienation and (self-) isolation of societies and the shrinking spaces for dialogue and cooperation over the divide. Secondly, the narrow understanding of the complex conflict structures and dynamics, the restricted knowledge exchange between the societies in conflict and the need for new and innovative ideas for dialogue as well as confidence building.
