NATO-EAPC Research Fellowships Programme 1998-2000
The NATO Fellowship Programme was introduced in 1956 for citizens of
NATO countries. During their Summit Meeting in May 1989, NATO Heads
of State and Government decided to offer, in addition, a programme of
"Democratic Institutions Fellowships" for citizens of the countries
of Central and Eastern Europe (NATO's Co-operation Partners).
Implementing decisions taken at the Sintra Ministerial (May 1997) and
the Alliance Summit in Madrid (July 1997), these two fellowships
categories were unified and renamed NATO Euro-Atlantic Partnership
Council Fellowships Programme (NATO-EAPC). These fellowships were
opened to candidates from both member countries and co-operation
partners. The aim of this Programme is to promote study and research
leading to publication in areas of particular interest to the
Organization, primarily Alliance security and political issues.
This year the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is pleased to
announce the award of 55 fellowships to citizens of EAPC member
At their Spring 1995 meeting, NATO Foreign Ministers established the
Manfred Wrner Fellowship. The purpose of this distinguished
Fellowship, endowed with BEF 800,000, is to honour the memory of the
former Secretary General by focusing attention on his leadership in
the transformation of the Alliance, including efforts at extending
NATO's relations with CEE countries and promoting the principles and
image of the Transatlantic partnership. This year's winner of the
Manfred Wrner Fellowship is the Atlantic Club of Bulgaria. On
behalf of the ACB, the Project Director, Mr. Ivan Iotov KRASTEV, has
undertaken to work on a project titled "Enlarged NATO's Mission in
the First Decades of the 21st Century".
For the first time this year NATO has established Institutional
Fellowships for the Mediterranean Dialogue countries. The Atlantic
Alliance is pleased to announce that five such fellowships have been
awarded, one each to Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania and Morocco.
The membership of the Selection Committee, the names of the NATO
Fellows and their study are given at annex. For further information,
