Applications invited for 2014 Human Development Fellowships

2014 Human Development Fellowships

The application process for the 2014 IC4HD Human Development (HD) Fellowship is now open!

brochure The IC4HD 2014 Human Development Fellowships support three month/six month/nine month programmes which do not involve empirical work with data collection and fieldwork during the fellowship period. The research supported under the 2014 fellowship programme must focus on a well-defined aspect of human development under the theme of Social Security in the Global South.

The IC4HD Human Development Fellowships aim to encourage mid-career professionals (academics, civil servants, and civil society practitioners) to analyze critical development issues from the human development perspective. This contributes to development theory, and identification of applications and policies that put people at the centre of development debates.

The objectives of the IC4HD HD Fellowships are to:

  • Support innovative analytical work on a particular theme, which is selected every year, from the human development perspective
  • Identify actionable goals that could be prioritized in development initiatives in countries in the South based on the existing evidence and analysis
  • Promote South-South learning and sharing of expertise and experiences
  • Promote a network of experts who can identify innovative options for policy measures in the global South

This is a residential fellowship offered at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study (IIAS), Shimla, India. As the Indian Institute of Advanced Study organizes several national level seminars every year, on themes of pressing contemporary relevance as well as of fundamental theoretical significance, the fellowship provides the opportunity to interact with several scholars.

Fellows must have relevant work experience of about 10-12 years, and be nationals of countries from selected countries of the Global South (please refer to the brochure for the list of selected countries).

For more information on the fellowships and on how to apply, please view/download the brochure.
