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

28.06.2011

The Think Tank Fund and the East East: Partnership Beyond Borders Program of the Open Society Foundations announce a Request for Proposals to launch a grant competition which will support 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.

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