WASHINGTON, USA – The General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (GS/OAS) and the European University Institute (EUI) today signed a new framework agreement.
The partnership will enhance the collaboration between the two institutions in the fields of democracy, human rights, development, security and transnational governance. In this respect, the EUI and GS/OAS will jointly promote cooperative research as well as facilitate knowledge and the exchange of ideas between policymaking spheres in the Americas and Europe.
Under the agreement, the two institutions will work together in the development and support of joint activities such as institutional exchanges, conferences, symposia and meetings, joint research programs and a policy-dialogue fellowship program, as well as the implementation of information exchange and executive education training courses in policy-relevant areas.
The two institutions will also facilitate intellectual collaboration and international understanding through the establishment of scholarships, internships and visitor’s programs that would benefit citizens of OAS member states as well as Master’s students at the EUI’s School of Transnational Governance, students at the new Master of Research in Economics and PhD researchers, in addition to faculty and staff at the EUI.
