Democracy Visiting Fellowships 2017, Harvard University, USA

Publish Date: Mar 24, 2017

Deadline: Nov 01, 2017

Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation | Harvard Kennedy School

The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation invites faculty, doctoral, and postdoctoral students to apply for its Democracy Visiting Fellowships. The Ash Center aims to support research on democratic governance that addresses substantive concerns and offers normative or practical guidance regarding those concerns. 


We are broadly interdisciplinary and invite scholars who use approaches from political theory and philosophy, political science, sociology, law, or history. We are especially interested in drawing scholars whose work focuses on innovations in public participation and political participation in non-democracies.


The duration of the fellowship is one academic year, from August 1 until July 31. Visiting Fellows will be expected to participate in a regular graduate workshop and engage in the activities of the Ash Center and Harvard Kennedy School more broadly. The Ash Center Visiting Fellowships do not carry a stipend, but we can offer institutional support including shared office space and physical and online library access.

How to Apply

The application for academic year 2018 - 2019 will be posted here over the summer and will be due by November 1, 2017. With questions please contact Hannah Hilligoss, Program and Research Assistant for the Democratic Governance Program.

Current Visiting Fellows:

  • Sean Gray, Ph.D., University of British Columbia; SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow
  • Melissa Williams, Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto
  • Hilary Silver, Professor of Sociology and Urban Studies, Brown University
