The McKinsey Global Institute has launched a global essay contest aimed at crowdsourcing solutions to one of Europe’s biggest political and economic conundrums: how to implement a pro-growth economic strategy that is both effective and that appeals to voters and policy-makers.
The essay prize is a follow-up to the MGI June 2015 report, A Window of Opportunity for Europe, which identified policy measures that could double GDP growth in Europe in a sustainable manner and create more than 20 million jobs in Europe. While that report identified the “why” and the “what,” it did not focus on the “how.”

There are two ways to go about your life. You can either sit back hoping something good will fall into
your lap, or you can get up, get out and work hard to get what you want from life.
YLC 2016 is all about the journey of self-discovery; a journey that requires sacrifice, hard work and determination. A highway symbolizes transition, leaving behind certain things as you move on to the new.

The Fulbright Program, including the Fulbright-Hays Program, is a program of competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946. Under the Fulbright Program, competitively selected U.S. citizens may become eligible for scholarships to study, conduct research, or exercise their talents abroad; and citizens of other countries may qualify to do the same in the United States. The program was established to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.

Activists in Residence will be working on issues such as addressing sexual and gender-based violence in conflict, peace-building, peace-keeping or local efforts to enhance women’s security or ensure women’s active and effective participation in processes for conflict prevention, management and resolution. Activists will be involved in the work of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security, interacting with students and academics and contributing to activities such as research and writing projects, public events, policy-oriented and knowledge-exchange workshops.
