MIASA is dedicated to research in the Humanities and Social Sciences, with ‘Sustainable Governance’ as its central topic. The main thematic corridors are conflict and sustainable peace, democracy and environmental transformation. Individual residential fellowships will allow researchers to conduct a project of their own choice, connected to MIASA’s thematic research areas. Projects can be at a conceptional, mid-term phase or final stage (analyzing data, writing up findings). Fellowships are residential with only shorter absences possible and with only limited funds to support activities such as field work trips.

The call is open to scholars (both on junior and senior levels) who have been awarded their doctoral degree at least three months before the start of the fellowship.

Application deadline: 31 August 2022
