Research Fellowships

Recent graduates participate in fellowships that are awarded to top 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.

The course will aim to provide an understanding of the patterns and constraints of gender inequality around the world up to the present day, and to review and debate what we know and don’t know about what policies and programs can work to close gender gaps, with a focus on developing countries. The course is set up around a series of major policy questions central to the gender equality agenda, and linked to international development debates around the Sustainable Development Goals.
