Social Science Research Council Eurasia Program Training 
Seminar for Policy Research "Public Health, Social Welfare 
Systems, and HIV/AIDS in Eurasia" 

New York City and Washington, D.C. June 6-9, 2006

The Eurasia Program of the Social Science Research Council 
invites applications for the first annual Training Seminar for
Policy Research, "Public Health, Social Welfare Systems, and 
HIV/AIDS in Eurasia." The seminar will be held June 6-9, 2006 
at the SSRC offices in New York City and the Kennan Institute 
at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in 
Washington D.C. Advanced graduate students and junior 
faculty in the social sciences, humanities and other relevant
disciplines who are working on health-related and/or other 
relevant topics with respect to Eurasia are encouraged to apply.

Candidates need not be working exclusively on topics of 
HIV/AIDS in Eurasia; their work may address issues of 
public health, welfare systems, governance, population
change, family networks and community dynamics, risk behaviors, 
and other topics related to the broad rubric of the seminar.

Each participant will be tasked with re-examining his/her own 
research from the perspectives of both interdisciplinarity and
policy relevance. During the four-day seminar, participants will 
discuss their individual paper submissions and research approaches 
with three senior resource persons.  Broader issues will be addressed 
by guest speakers from a cross-section of academia, non-profit, 
government, business and international organizations. Participants 
will benefit from discussions of their own research, expand their 
networks within both academic and non-academic circles, and gain 
the skills and vocabularies to better tailor their work to a broader 
audience of academics, practitioners, and policymakers.

For detailed information on application procedures and
eligibility requirements, please visit the Eurasia Program online
