Corridors Fellows 2018

In 2018, we provided three fellows from Moldova/Transnistria and Russia the opportunity for a one-month research stay to Germany. During their joint research stay in Regensburg, Mihai Mogildea from Chisinau and Anatolii Dirun from Tiraspol explored the interdependencies between the protracted conflict around Transnistria and the domestic political and economic development in the region. During the fellowship, they actively used the opportunity for an intensive exchange, further cooperation, and gave a joint lecture at IOS. During the public lecture the fellows shared and discussed their perspective on the interdependencies between the protracted conflict and the economic and political development in the region. Our third 2018 Corridors Fellow was Alexey Gunya from Nalchik. During his research stay he continued and presented his research on ‘Local communities in the Caucasus between conflict and development. Furthermore, the fellowship was dedicated to explore and develop concrete ideas for further academic cooperation between the North Caucasus and Germany.
