EPRC FELLOW NOMINATED FOR GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP
By Mulengera Reporter
Economic Policy Research Center (EPRC) researcher Dr Francis Mwesigye has invited to participate in a global fellowship program that will provide opportunities for research collaboration, student supervision and learning at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).
Launched in 2014, the program seeks to formalize the connection between PRIO and researchers at other institutions around the world, helping us to strengthen existing working relationships as well as build new ones, spurring the development of new projects in keeping with PRIO’s mission: to engage in research concerning the conditions for peaceful relations between nations, groups, and individuals.
According to the invitation letter sent to Dr Mwesigye, PRIO staff had been asked to submit nominations, from which the Director’s Office, in consultation with the PRIO Leader Team, has made a selection.
Outstanding scholarship and a strong commitment to the peace and conflict research agenda have been the key selection criteria, although we have also sought to ensure that the cohort of Global Fellows is diverse in terms of gender, geography, disciplinary background, and methodological approach, the invitation letter further read.
“You have been nominated for the fellowship by Gudrun Østby and Siri Aas Rustad, who will act as your main contact persons at PRIO and play a key role in integrating you into relevant PRIO activities,” wrote Henrik in the letter. “A PRIO Global Fellowship is a non-resident fellowship. Nevertheless, we hope that, once travel restrictions have been relaxed, you will be able to visit PRIO at regular intervals. Visits will usually be funded by ongoing projects.”
