EUCAM fellows go online


The fellows that were selected for the 2020 spring fellowship were unable to come over to Groningen to work with us as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. After a delay, Aizhan, Begimai, and Irina have started their online fellowship. They will work as a Central Asia-based team on issues of woman empowerment and civil society. Also, they are meeting every week virtually with people from the policy community in Brussels, CESS experts, and EUCAM associates for training and debating sessions. Whereas we hope to soon welcome our fellows in Groningen we do see merit in increasingly working online in research and outreach.
