Open World Program – Rumsfeld Fellowship
October 18, 2014 - October 22, 2014
The Rumsfeld Foundation has partnered with the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) to establish the Central Asia-Caucasus Young Leaders Fellowship Program. The program was launched in the fall of 2008 to bring individuals from Central Asia, the Caucasus, Afghanistan and Mongolia to pursue research projects and establish ties with their counterparts in the United States. Throughout a six week program, each group of Fellows meets with American policy makers, public officials, analysts, business leaders, journalists, academics and regional experts in their area of interest.
The Cleveland Council on World Affairs is working with Open World and the Rumsfeld Foundation to bring 5 experts from Afghanistan, Georgia, Kazahkstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan to Cleveland for a program on “Accountable Governance.” The group will be staying with host families and meeting with local organizations who will share best practices and see how we can play a helpful role in their evolution toward freer economic and political systems.
