ATLANTIC FELLOWS FOR SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC EQUITY

Description

Based in the International Inequalities Institute (III) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships. AFSEE’s aim, via Residential and Non-Residential Fellowship tracks, is to cultivate a sustainable and catalytic community of Fellows who are part of a global community of social change leaders.

AFSEE Fellows work together to think critically about the root causes of social and economic inequalities and apply this to real-world practice. They are exposed to diverse ideas and perspectives in a programme embedded in LSE’s renowned research community and informed by activists and practitioners from around the world. They pursue outcome-oriented projects and are encouraged to develop a shared understanding of the principles and values of social and economic equity, and their relation to practices of community and leadership.

The Fellows will go on to use the capabilities, perspectives, commitment, and networks they have developed through the programme to champion and implement ideas, policies, practices, and solutions aligned to achieving social and economic equity through active engagement in a sustained peer-led community. After completing the fellowship year, they become part of a global, lifelong community of Senior Atlantic Fellows, joining a Fellow-driven, active network of social change leaders, with further opportunities for learning and engagement.

Residential Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity are based in London for a full academic year (September to August) to complete the one-year MSc Inequalities and Social Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science and take part in AFSEE modules.

Non-Residential Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity take AFSEE’s programme of modules, committing to five weeks over the course of a year, while maintaining their professional commitments. The Non-Residential Fellowship track offers a practice and programme focus designed for individuals who are assuming new challenges in their social change work that will enhance and extend their impact. It provides access to networks, intellectual support, and capacity-building to support Fellows in navigating the next stage of their leadership journey.
