the second fellow would be researching the literature for the conference that
will be held in June 2007, entitled Towards resolving the problems of forced
uprooting: A regional approach. Fellows will be encouraged to conduct research
that will lead to their own publication or a co-published article.

2. Internships at Forced Migration and Refugees Studies FMRS, AUC

In 2003, FMRS became a partner of the Development Research Centre (DRC) at
Sussex University in the UK. Funded by the UK Dept for International
Development (DfID). DRC has initiated a five-year, multi-university project
researching and analyzing livelihood and policy implications of migration,
globalization and poverty. As part of this project, internships are offered to
those who would like to study or gain experience in research or community
outreach/development in the context of
forced migration and refugees studies
in the middle east and Africa.

Eligibility:
A master's degree and previous experience in forced migration is preferred

Duration:
Internships usually start either in September or in January for a minimum of 3
and ideally 6 months. The first intake will commence in August/September 2006

Selection:
All those meeting the general criteria stated above are welcome to apply.
Candidates from developing countries, including the Middle East, Africa and
South Asia are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications will be
considered on merit by members of FMRS joint steering committee. Those who
wish placements with FMRS outreach projects or CBOs will be advised.

Potential assignments:
Interns may submit their own research proposals or, to gain experience, they
may also apply to work with a faculty member in his/her research. They may
also apply to assist with one of the outr
each programs implemented by FMRS.
Alternatively, they can apply to work with one of the refugee community based
organizations (CBOs) in Cairo. There is an urgent need for persons having
training in community development to work with these CBOs, assisting them with
the organization requirements for registration and/or fundraising.

Funding:
Interns are self funded, however, FMRS will support research costs of DRC
projects incurred by the intern. Basic monthly expenses in Cairo amount to
between USD 400-500, which covers shared accommodation, food and
transportation in Cairo. Those without knowledge of Arabic or the language of
the refugee population they propose to study or work with must include funds
for the services of an interpreter FMRS offers a course of community
interpreters and can provide trained personnel. These costs are estimated at
USD 100 per month.

Please see details of the internship-funding competi
tion, and other funding
sources available.
