The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) is excited to launch a new partnership with the Center on International Cooperation (CIC), a nonprofit research centre housed at New York University (NYU). For over two decades, CIC has been a leader in applied policy that links politics, security, justice, development, and humanitarian issues.
As part of the new partnership, AFSEE Senior Fellows will have the opportunity to take part in Visiting Fellowships, which will allow them and researchers from the Center on International Cooperation to collaborate with each other on an inequalities-related research project during a three to four – week stay at NYU in New York City.
AFSEE has also committed to supporting the Inequality Solutions portal, launched by CIC’s Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies – programme in July 2023. The portal is an online repository showcasing innovative policies from around the world aimed at tackling inequality and exclusion. Drawing from the vast expertise and experience of the AFSEE community, the portal will include contributions from AFSEE Fellows, who are working across the world to address inequality through policy and action.
The Center on International Cooperation joins AFSEE’s other node partner, the Centre for the Study of Conflict and Social Cohesion (COES) based in Chile. Partnering with organisations across the world increases the impact of the AFSEE programme and AFSEE Fellows’ work as well as advances its overall mission to advance social and economic equity through collaboration and innovation.
