Global Initiative Resilience Fellowship 2020 (Fully Funded)

Global Initiative Resilience Fellowship 2020 (Fully Funded)

The Fully funded Global Initiative Resilience fellowship will provide support and opportunities to a cohort of people around the world. Each year, a chosen topic will focus on a global problem, in which the members of Resilience Fellows will collaborate to find new perspectives and answers, drawn from their various experiences, although shared.

By 2020, the theme of the Resilience Fellowship is: “Disappearances related to organized crime.” Within this framework, the fellows will combine their diverse perspectives in the development of collaborative products. In addition, they will represent the Fund as “Resilience Fund Ambassadors”, raising awareness of the issue, the problems; and the importance of civil society in the fight against organized crime.

Disappearances have been used to repress politically or criminally opponents and those who speak and act against human rights abuses. This global problem prevails throughout the world, making it a relevant and extremely important issue for many potential scholars.

The work areas of potential candidates may include:

  • Murders by organized crime groups, for example in Mexico and Central America, and the role of the state in extrajudicial executions in the war on drugs in the Philippines.
  • Missing migrants traveling from Africa to Europe, as in Libya, the Horn of Africa or the Sahel.
  • Human trafficking and extraction of human organs.
  • Arbitrary and unexplained arrests.
