BRAMS Institute is governed through central bodies, principally the Institute Council chaired by the founder and director of BRAMS Institute, Professor Maia Nadareishvili, and the Editorial Board of the academic journal BRAMS, chaired by Professor Jeremy J. Ramsden. All legislative issues are approved by the founding director, Maia Nadareishvili.
BRAMS Institute Council is the principal executive and policy-making body of the Institute, chaired by the founding director of the Institute who has overall responsibility for administration, defining the Institute's mission, planning its work, and managing its resources. The members of the Council deal with the relations between the Institute and other organisations or individuals. The Council is authorised to hold a meeting if it is attended by the founding director and at least one member of the Council.
The Editorial Board of BRAMS Journal is the main governing body of the academic journal BRAMS, chaired by Professor Jeremy J. Ramsden who has been appointed by the founding director of the Institute. The number of Board members can change from issue to issue. The founding director of BRAMS Institute is the Editor-in-Chief of BRAMS Journal who makes and amends the regulations that govern the journal as well as the Institute. She also appoints an undefined number of external members whose principal duty is to control the academic research policy of the journal and to monitor the journal content. The Board is responsible for maintaining a high standard of research. The journal has a number of elected copy editors who review all manuscripts and approve submissions for publishing.
The BRAMS Institute Council is the central point of advice and services for international researchers and practitioners who intend to get involved in joint activities. International professors, post-docs, degree-seeking doctoral students as well as practitioners with over twenty-year of work experience in the relevant fields are welcome to co-operate with BRAMS Institute.
In order to meet your expectations the best way possible, the Institute team will give information support and targeted help regarding all important matters related to your needs around the project so that you will have a fruitful and enriching work experience with us.
Feel free to send your proposal via email 24/7. We shall reply based on the nature of your offer, taking into consideration all aspects of safety and confidentiality. However, only customers who meet all the criteria of the regulations will be contacted.
The Institute Council keeps the right to quit negotiation with any client on any level of consideration at any time. Only projects with agreed and signed proposals will be completed unless the other party fails to fulfil responsibilities. The moment a single regulation appears neglected, the work stops and the project is either terminated or postponed until a new proposal is agreed on.
BRAMS Institute provides a wide range of services to its private and business customers. Concentrating on an individual approach for each project, personalised quality service is offered. There is a general list of services on the Contributions page that the Institute offers to its customers along with a brief description. Due to contrasting goals, the Institute board might put down any proposal or agree to do work unlisted currently.
The Institute advocates equality between all human beings and acts accordingly. Therefore, no one ever is given priority when discussing work offerings. All projects are regulated according to BRAMS Institute regulations.
The Institute never accepts CVs / Resumes for recruitment purposes, nor takes into consideration any kind of offer about employment. Our team is complete and only changes happen when the Institute Council decides on such.
There are three main research clusters at BRAMS Institute: British Studies, American Studies, and Kartvelian (Georgian) Studies. In addition, there are Germanic Studies and Icelandic Studies. The staff members carry out cutting-edge research in all fields as we do believe in freedom of personal interests. For detailed information, please do visit the Research page on our website. Together with postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students, BRAMS professors intend to answer a broad array of questions from political science and international relations to translation challenges and IT management strategies within globalisation.
