Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity, housed at LSE's International Inequalities Institute, is an innovative funded fellowship that brings together activists, policy-makers and movement-builders from around the world to explore and challenge the root causes of inequality.
Rana Zincir Celal, executive director of Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity, said: “This is a fellowship that goes far beyond a conventional academic programme. Because we believe in the power of collective leadership to create imaginative and bold solutions to inequality, we are building a transformative community, driven by shared values, to do just this.
“The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a home for thinkers, doers and change-makers whose unique insights and experience will help to shape and inform the International Inequalities Institute’s research. They are people with courage, commitment and compassion who are envisioning just and equitable alternatives to today’s deeply unjust and unequal world.”
The programme is supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies via an unprecedented £64 million, 20-year grant aimed at building a catalytic and long-term community of 400 fellows. It is one of seven Atlantic Fellowships worldwide working to create a global community to advance fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies.
Applications are open from 28 August to 22 October 2019 for the fourth cohort of the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity.
