Developed in partnership with the Institute of Political Science and International Relations “Ion I. C. Brătianu” of the Romanian Academy (ISPRI), the “Mircea Malița Scholarship” program is open to researchers with exceptional potential in the field of international relations and strategic business.
The program offers a series of research scholarships to young people who can create added value in specialized research and analysis dedicated to regions / states of strategic interest to Romania.
The selection of young researchers will be made by the members of the FUMN Board of Directors, and the scholarships will be offered within ISPRI for a period of one year.
China up to date. Launch of the Center for Russian Chinese Studies.
Before the pandemic, the project of the Institute of Political Science and International Relations “Ion I. C. Brătianu” of the Romanian Academy was the launch of a Center for Russian Studies, within the institute. The pandemic changed our plan. Without necessarily inventing anything new, the pandemic has exposed and exacerbated old trends – among them, the rise of China, accelerated by the pandemic at a pace that has confused not only the West but also Beijing.
A Center dedicated strictly to Russia had become an (almost) inadequate issue, along with major trends that suggested that the future world order would revolve around the US-China doublet, leaving behind the order of the Cold War and American hegemony.
The pandemic has clearly shown us that we are entering a new era of international relations.
Therefore, the project was transformed into a Sino-Russian Study Center, within ISPRI and under the auspices of the Romanian Academy. We are now launching it in the pages of Adevărul, through one of its constant projects, namely “China up to date – the magazine of the Chinese language press”
During the Mircea Malița International Conferences, specialists in diplomacy, foreign policy and international public relations address current and external current issues.
