Dear all,

The Center for Migration and Refugee Studies at the American University 
in Cairo is hosting a competition for "young scholars". Please note that 
the eligibilty criteria has been expanded and this call is being re-posted.

Call for submissions: Essay Competition for Young Scholars

Topic: The politics of climate change and population 
movement/displacement in the Middle East and North Africa.

Background:
Recent World Bank research has suggested that the:

Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is one of the regions that is most 
vulnerable to climate change on account of the highest level of water 
scarcity in the world, a significant dependence on climate-sensitive 
agriculture, the concentration of populations and economic activity in 
flood-prone urban coastal zones, and the presence of conflict-ridden 
areas in which climate induced resource scarcity could escalate violence 
and political turmoil even beyond the region's boundaries.

In short, the MENA region is very vulnerable in agriculture, urban 
development and important water management that will be affected by 
climate change and drought. For example, it is estimated that some 80 
million to 100 million people in the MENA region will not have 
sufficient access to water by 2025, and the recent tension over outdated 
treaties between countries relying upon the Nile has been a serious 
concern. The potential for migration and displacement as a consequence 
of climate change and how it might be managed needs to be better 
understood, particularly in relation to possible future insecurity and 
instability. There is a need for a better understanding of what dangers 
and remedies lie ahead to avoid conflict and develop peaceful population 
adaptations to climate change in the region.*

Eligibility: UPDATED: Advanced PhD candidates or recent PhD graduates 
(up to 2 years)

Objective: To foster and encourage refugee and migration scholarship on 
the region, and to reward upcoming scholars in the field.

Output: Policy research paper, 25-30 pages (1.5 spaced, 12 pt font), of 
publishable standard.

Submissions: To enter the contest, please send a CV and a short abstract 
to [log in to unmask]  to confirm eligibility.

Timeline:
10 November 2010: Eligibility Criteria expanded and Call Re-Published
31 December 2010: Deadline for submission of final draft
January 2011: Committee selects 3 winners; each will be awarded USD 1,000
