The Fellowship of young researchers to the civil society organizations and think tanks working on migration and development in the Western Balkans is the latest project launched by GERMIN (Kosovo), in partnership with Centre for Support of Local and Regional Development (CeP) from Montenegro, and ESTIMA Association from North Macedonia. This is a new opportunity for young researchers in three of the Western Balkan Countries to conduct a fellowship in the field of migration and development from a regional perspective. The goal is to provide access to migration entities' research infrastructures, where fellowship participants can get access to data and mentorship. This will help them produce reports on key topics related to migration and development in the region, and present the findings at a regional conference that is going to happen in Prishtina.
- Increase knowledge and skills of fellows in migration studies through practical training, mentorship and support supervision;
- Enhance regional cooperation through building capacity on migration studies by having mutual access to regular national data collection, data analysis and reporting;
- Establish the pre-innovative Western Balkans network focused on capacity building, knowledge and experience sharing.
