U.S.-Russia University Partnership Program (Eurasia Foundation)

Launched in 2015, EF’s U.S.-Russia University Partnership Program (UPP) promotes academic collaboration between U.S. and Russian citizens by connecting higher education institutions and supporting the launch of new bilateral academic partnerships. UPP employs a unique partnership model that allows Russian and U.S. universities to connect with each other through an online database and participate in funding competitions for new partnership projects.
UPP funding competitions allow institutions to apply in two stages: the first “contact” stage provides modest funds to support the design of partnership project proposals, and the second “linkage” stage offers more substantial funding for implementation of partnership projects. Examples of eligible partnership projects include joint research projects, dual degree programs, joint course delivery, resource-sharing arrangements, and faculty exchange programs, with an emphasis on two-country impact and sustainability beyond the project funding period. Over the course of UPP, EF anticipates launching at least 15 bilateral partnerships between Russian and U.S. institutions.
In addition to funding new partnerships, UPP features an online database of suggested partnership projects posted by Russian and U.S. higher education professionals. UPP encourages institutions to use the online database as a resource to locate potential partners, whether for UPP’s funding competitions or other types of collaboration.
Against the backdrop of an increasingly globalized and interconnected world, international education is an essential component of developing diverse, educated, and dynamic societies. Through UPP, EF is ensuring that the free flow of ideas and research continues to enrich universities in both countries.
Eurasia Foundation was founded as a public-private partnership in 1992. Within a year we had established our first field office in Moscow, and soon were operating in every country in the former Soviet Union. Over the course of our history, EF has expanded its reach and scope or operations, upholding our core mission to empower citizens to take responsibility for their own civic and economic prosperity.

Call for papers
‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba. The study of revolution needs to catch up with the actual experience of revolutionary movements and states.

One barrier to this endeavor is the fracturing of the study of revolutions into different disciplines and sub-fields. This workshop seeks to bring together scholars and students working on revolutions from different disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. Sociology, International Relations, History, and Political Science), sub-fields (e.g. social movements…
