GI-TOC Resilience Fellowship 2024 ( $15000 grant )

The Resilience Fellowship 2024  provides a platform for cross-sectoral, global and interdisciplinary collaboration between civil society actors, human rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policymakers, grassroots community leaders and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

The Fellowship is part of the GI-TOC’s flagship Resilience Fund, which provides grants and support to civil society individuals and organizations working to counter the impacts of criminal governance and violence across the world. Established with a grant from the government of Norway, the Resilience Fund is also supported by the governments of Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand and works in partnership with international organizations and NGOs worldwide.

Theme for 2024: Fragility and Resilience 


Ten fellows will be selected from different contexts and supported through the following mechanisms:

  • Grants: In fragile environments, the scarcity of financial resources is a pressing issue. Due to ongoing conflict, weak governance and socio-economic disparities, traditional sources of support are often underdeveloped or unavailable. The 2024 Resilience Fellowship will directly address this gap by providing grants of US$15 000 to individuals in such environments for community projects that build resilience. By focusing on fragile contexts, the Fellowship will ensure that resources reach those who are typically overlooked, making a tangible difference in communities that are most in need.
  • Capacity building: Through the Fellowship’s training and mentoring programme, Fellows will receive guidance on navigating the unique challenges presented by their environments, such as cyber threats, physical security risks and the complexities of criminal economies. This approach begins with an understanding of fragility: identifying the local manifestations of organized crime and developing strategies to counter them.
  • Networking and collaboration: The Fellowship will provide networking and collaboration opportunities through its Resilience Dialogues and the Resilience Fund Community Platform to influence global policy and strengthen Fellows’ initiatives. By fostering an interdisciplinary, global and cross-sectoral network, the Fellowship aims to support a diverse range of solutions, share resources and best practices, and strengthen community resilience to organized crime in fragile contexts.
