humanitarian organizations (non-governmental and governmental); refugee and
migration studies (including their environmental dimensions); women and 
refugees; human security and peace-building; reconstruction; and/or human
rights. Candidates who take a critical interdisciplinary view of both this
field and the larger field of Development Studies, and who can draw upon
applied/institutional experiences, are particularly welcome. Also

indigenous communities.  Application Deadline: January 3, 2006. See also

health, public health, food security, or urban environmental planning and

interested in applicants who work within broad ecological and social justice
frameworks. Deadline: January 16, 2006.  See also:
