World Social Science Fellows Programme


From 2012 to 2015 the ISSC led the World Social Science Fellows programme, an international scientific programme which sought to foster a new generation of globally-networked research leaders who will collaborate in addressing global problems with particular relevance for low and middle income countries. Fellows from a diverse range of disciplines participated in seminars to discuss and design interdisciplinary perspectives on priority topics. Fellows took the lead for most of the work and discussions at seminars, working with international leading specialists, policy makers, practitioners, activists, and other relevant stakeholders to enrich the reflections.

The Fellows programme was supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). Individual seminars are implemented in collaboration with partner organizations.
