About the World Social Science Fellows programme
The World Social Science Fellows programme seeks to foster a new generation of globally-networked research leaders who will collaborate in addressing global problems with particular relevance for low and middle income countries. Fellows from a diverse range of disciplines participate in seminars to discuss and design interdisciplinary perspectives on priority topics. Fellows take the lead for most of the work and discussions at seminars; working with international leading specialists, policy makers, practitioners, activists, and other relevant stakeholders to enrich the reflections.
The Fellows programme is supported by the Swedish International Development Agency and the Government of Sweden. Individual seminars are implemented in collaboration with partner organisations.
