Visiting Fellowships

We welcome applications from visiting scholars as well as practitioners interested in spending time at the Lab.

The Lab aims to put in place a fully funded Visiting Fellowship programme to enable exceptional applicants from around the world to spend time at LSE and actively engage with the Lab’s initiatives, irrespective of their financial means. Until that time, applicants who have funding in place can apply through the Centre’s Visiting Fellowship programme, making particular reference to the Lab and the relevance of their work to its objectives.


The Lab hosts a Secondment Scheme and welcomes hearing from the public, private and non-profit sectors interested in seconding specialists to work on Lab projects.

Secondees need not be experts in the field of human rights but should be able to demonstrate how their placement at the Lab could benefit their organisation. Applications may be submitted at any time and will be considered by the Lab's Secondment Committee. For information on how to apply please email:
