Applications are now open for the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) fellowship programme for social-change leaders who are working to tackle inequality. Policymakers, researchers, activists, practitioners, artists, and movement-builders from around the world are invited to apply to the innovative, fully-funded, and inequalities-focused fellowship programme based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Currently recruiting for its eighth cohort, the AFSEE Fellowship is aimed at mid-career social-change leaders from across the globe, who have at least seven years of experience in challenging inequalities. Applications are accepted from individuals working on any field of social and economic equity, including, but not limited to economic and social rights; sustainability and environmental activism; tax justice and economic alternatives; women’s, minority, and disability rights; rights to education; democracy and governance; housing and urban inequalities; labour rights; community organising; arts and culture; and peacebuilding and transitional justice.
The AFSEE Fellowship, which offers both Residential and Non-Residential tracks, begins with an active fellowship year that offers an intensive period of learning and skills-building carried out in LSE’s research-rich environment and informed by dialogic pedagogy and co-creation.
Fellows on the Residential track spend one year in London undertaking the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science degree at LSE, as well as participating in the programme’s four bespoke fellowship modules over the course of the year. The modules, which are led by AFSEE Executive Director Professor Armine Ishkanian and AFSEE Programme Lead Dr Sara Camacho Felix, feature contributions from academics, practitioners, campaigners, and civil society professionals, and focus on the foundations of social and economic inequalities, policy for equity, challenging and transforming inequality, and debates around inequality.
Members of the Non-Residential track remain in their home countries and work contexts during the active fellowship year, develop a practice-based project and join their Residential counterparts online and in-person for the fellowship modules. Non-Residential Fellows will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Social and Economic Equity upon successful completion of the active fellowship year.
After the active fellowship year, all Fellows join a lifelong fellowship community made up of members of all seven Atlantic Fellows programmes worldwide and continue to receive support and opportunities to learn, connect, and collaborate.
