The ECMI hosts every year a number of visiting researchers through its Fellows Programmes. The Programmes are designed to provide educational opportunities at the Centre and also function as tools to encourage exchange between the resident researchers and scholars working on minority issues at other institutions. The aim is thus to make the ECMI an international research environment by bringing to the Centre scholars with experiences from other cultures as well as those who lack opportunity of mobility in Europe. The Programmes also offer an opportunity to learn from the governance scheme in place in the border region while participating in the ECMI’s international and research activities.
