Study trip within the framework of the project PAIC takes place in Kyiv

Between 26 November and 1 December, young researchers from Germany will attend a study trip to Kyiv which is organized within the scope of the project “Platform for Analytics and Inter­cul­tural Commu­ni­cation” (PAIC).

The study trip enables researchers with special interest in Ukraine to contribute to a formal and informal exchange with Ukrainian think tanks and to make new contacts. The researchers will be given the oppor­tunity to gain insight into Ukrainian internal and foreign policies with a focus on education, social affairs and decen­tral­ization. Finally, the partic­i­pants are given the possi­bility to attend a think tank conference on 30 November 2017 in Kyiv, which is one of the few exchange platforms where think tanks from all Ukrainian regions are repre­sented.

The project “Platform for Analytics and Inter­cul­tural Commu­ni­cation” (PAIC) is conducted by the Institute for European Politics e.V. (IEP, Berlin) in cooper­ation with the Inter­na­tional Renais­sance Foundation (IRF, Kiev), the Ilko Kucheriv Democ­ratic Initia­tives Foundation (DIF, Kiev) and the think tank initiative “think twice UA” (Kiev), supported by the German Federal Foreign Office in 2017–2018.
