The oiip supports the application process and acts as host institution for incoming fellows. We provide an institutional affiliation, office space, access to our infrastructure, as well as involvement in a lively academic and policy community. Fellows will be expected to contribute to the output of the institute in the form of academic publications, policy papers, as well as academic and public events (conferences, workshops, and panel discussions).

We are also interested in projects on international organizations, transatlantic relations or a regional expertise on Russia, China and/or Southeast Asia.
