Research Fellowships

Fellowships are awarded to recent graduates who are interested in pursuing research on women, peace, security, and the economy. Fellows – who come to us from disciplines as diverse as economics, international relations, law, and public policy – conduct desk and field research that helps close key knowledge and evidence gaps in the field of women, peace, and security. The fellowships are made possible by the generous support of individual and corporate donors.

There were two GIWPS-affiliated graduate classes offered during the Spring 2019 semester. Women, Peace and Security, taught by Jacqui O’Neill, addressed women’s experiences in conflict-affected and post-conflict settings and the impact of women’s participation. Carla Koppell, GIWPS’ distinguished fellow, taught a course on Diversity and Inclusion in Conflict Resolution and Development.
