The African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) welcomes research fellowship applications from intelligent African scholars, researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners working on conflict and peacebuilding matters at universities and research institutions; or regional, governmental, and nongovernmental agencies or organizations located in Africa.
An important aspect of the APN, the Individual Research Fellowship (IRF) Program is a vehicle for promoting the quality and visibility of independent African peacebuilding research both regionally and globally, while building peacebuilding knowledge accessible to key policymakers, practitioners, and research centers of excellence in Africa and around the world. Fellowship recipients produce research-based knowledge that is proper to, and has a impressive impact on peacebuilding scholarship, policy, and practice on the continent. For its part, the APN works toward inserting the evidence-based knowledge that fellowship award recipients produce into regional and global debates, practices, and policies focusing on peacebuilding. The program also aims to create a highly visible and active network of African scholars and practitioners capable of projecting African perspectives and voices onto global peacebuilding discourses, knowledge, and practices. 2023/2024 SSRC African Peacebuilding Network Individual Research Fellowships
