Civil Society Practitioners Programme
For Global South civil society practitioners
The Oxford Internet Institute (OII) at the University of Oxford invites applications from the Global South to fill two places in its Civil Society Practitioners Programme.
This visitor programme is intended for civil society practitioners of distinction or outstanding promise who wish to visit the Institute for a period of six weeks between February and December 2008 to undertake research concerning the social impact of the internet and related information and communication technology (ICT).
Visitors are expected to reside in Oxford during their stay, and to participate fully in the intellectual life of the Institute.
Applications, along with a research proposal, are invited from civil society practitioners in or from the global South, active in the areas of freedom of expression, media reform, media justice, and communications and information policy in the globalised context of the internet.
The successful applicants will receive:
A subsistence allowance of (US$7,500) to cover research expenses and living costs during their stay in Oxford.
A travel grant of up to (US$2,000) for travel to and from the United Kingdom (UK).
Are a citizen from and/or resident in the global South;
Have at least three years of demonstrated practical experience in your area of advocacy; and
Submit an application supported by the employing organisation, acknowledging that leave will be granted for purposes of participating in the OII's Visitor Programme.
In addition, to benefit fully from the residency, education to the Masters degree level or equivalent would be an advantage but is not essential.
