Young Leaders Training and Research Program in Regional Cooperation and Development Fellowship
The Northeast Asia Economic Forum (NEAEF) is pleased to announce the Young Leaders Training and Research Program in Regional Cooperation and Development Fellowship for 2011. This year’s program will take place from July 26 through August 11, 2011 (dates include travel time) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
NEAEF would like to encourage the participation of researchers and practitioners from your institution in this year’s Young Leaders Training and Research Program. A copy of the official announcement is attached, with application instructions. The application period is open from March 23 to May 2, 2011.
The Training and Research Program consists of in-depth seminars by leading academics and policy-makers and a series of collaborative group work devoted to regional cooperation, followed by the two-day participation of the annual Northeast Asia Economic Forum (August 8-9, 2011). This is an opportunity to expand your institution’s network through collaboration with researchers and practitioners from countries across Northeast Asia and the U.S. to make progress on issues of importance to the region.
To overcome the continuing institutional, cultural, and economic barriers to regional cooperation, NEAEF was created and formalized at conferences on Northeast Asian economic cooperation in 1991 in Changchun and Tianjin. Dr. Lee-Jay Cho, one of NEAEF’s key founders, continues to serve as the organization’s Chairman. Since 1991, through dialogue, education, and training, NEAEF has served as a vehicle for exchange of information and ideas among Northeast Asian and North American policymakers, businesspersons, academics, and members of nongovernmental organizations. Through an annual meeting, on-going working groups, and ad hoc meetings and seminars, the NEAEF network is dedicated to promoting NEAEF activities and goals in the area of policy, economics, and culture.
By participating in the activities of NEAEF, the Young Leaders Program (YLP) Fellows gain exposure to cutting edge regional cooperation issues by being given the opportunity to meet with prominent Forum guests from the countries of Northeast Asia.
For questions about the fellowship program, or if you are interested in being a YLP Fellow, please contact our office for additional information.

Career Talk with Tawanda Mutasah – Director of Programs in Open Society Institute
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Location: 341 Eggers
Tawanda Mutasah is International Director of Programs at the Open Society Institute (OSI) in New York, and was formerly Chair of OSI’s Africa Advisory Board. He previously directed the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa, and, among other pre-OSI roles, served on Oxfam GB’s international advocacy staff.
In Zimbabwe, he was founding chair of the National Constitutional Assembly – a prodemocracy coalition of over 200 national civic organizations. He also worked as head of the ecumenical justice and peace commission in the country. In the early 1990s, Mutasah was a young national leader who experienced various episodes of Mugabe’s retribution against Zimbabwe’s pioneering civic activism, suffering persecution as a national student leader and then as a human rights defender and pro-democracy organizer.
He serves on many African and international boards, including as chair of the Institute for a Democratic Alternative for Zimbabwe (IDAZIM), and as a founding trustee of the Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC).
Mutasah was admitted to the Zimbabwe bar in 1995 and is a recipient of the International Bar Association’s annual International Rule of Law Award and several academic awards. He holds degrees from the University of the Witwatersrand, as well as Harvard Law School and the University of Zimbabwe.
