The Leir Institute places an emphasis on building connections and synergies with established and emerging experts and actors in the fields of migration and human security. As such, the Leir Institute has two types of fellowships in place: Senior Fellows and Pre-Doctoral Research Fellows

Our Senior Fellows have extensive careers in the fields of migration and/or human security and reflect multiple facets of engagement – whether through conflict resolution and mediation, governance, humanitarian assistance, public health, livelihoods, or finance. Senior Fellows lend their expertise to enrich the Leir Institute’s faculty affiliates, research projects, etc. They also serve as a resource for students at the Fletcher School. 

Our Pre-Doctoral Research Fellows are either current doctoral candidates at the Fletcher School (residential fellows) or at other institutions (visiting fellows).
