Fecha límite de solicitud: 20 November 2018

¿Eres un líder de cambio social comprometido con el avance de la justicia y la equidad? ¿Desea comprender los procesos que están causando y profundizando las desigualdades? ¿Estás dispuesto a unir fuerzas con una red global de pares para enfrentar un desafío colectivo a la desigualdad?

The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity at the International Inequalities Institute is a fantastic opportunity for those from social movement, civil society, academic, campaign or policy-making organisations to investigate and challenge the causes of inequalities.

The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity will identify, prepare and connect cohorts of diverse, multidisciplinary and action-oriented leaders seeking radical solutions to the structural and historic barriers that underpin inequalities globally.

Via two tracks, Residential and Non-Residential, the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme combines rigorous academic coursework with practical approaches to fostering social change.

• Who may not have had access to fellowship opportunities in the past.
