Call for Applications: Population, Ethics, and Human Rights Fellowship

Wednesday, 31 August, 2022 - 12:00
  • Deadline for applications: 31 August 2022

The IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population Perspectives and Demographic Methods to Strengthen Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems, jointly with Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER, South Africa), the Initiative for Social and Economic Rights (ISER, Uganda) and the USC Institute on Inequalities on Global Health (USC IIGH, USA), and with support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), invite applications for 12-month resident fellowships for early-career, interdisciplinary researcher/practitioner professionals. 

Fellows will be hosted for 6-months at WiSER, Johannesburg and 6-months at ISER, Kampala, and benefit from engagement and support from all three sponsoring institutions. Applications from  low- and middle-income countries across different geographic regions and disciplinary expertise are highly encouraged.  

Fellows will be supported to conduct their own research and activities, to engage in multidisciplinary collaboration, and to become a cohort of thought leaders in this emerging field. They will be encouraged to explore ethical and human rights issues raised by population register systems in particular contexts through empirical, or concrete cases/examples of policy, statistical or administrative processes and procedures that either raise, address, or resolve these issues. The fellowship program will entail interactive dialogues and seminars that seek to unpack and draw on interdisciplinary perspectives to these issues including  attention to each case study and development of comparative insights across individual projects.
