Who we are
WHO WE ARE
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme, based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science, is building a catalytic values-led global community of people who are committed to using collective leadership to work towards social and economic justice for all.
By drawing on the insights of academic research, innovative social change strategies, and the Fellows’ own experience and expertise, the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is empowering a new generation of change-makers, including policymakers, activists, researchers, practitioners, and campaigners to work together across disciplines, backgrounds, and borders. It aims to deepen the knowledge and practical skills that Fellows need to envision and explore alternatives to the world’s deeply unequal economic, political, legal, and social structures.
Established with a landmark gift from The Atlantic Philanthropies in 2017, over 20 years the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) programme will support over 400 Fellows drawn from both the Global South and the Global North. AFSEE is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellows programmes, which together create a global community to advance fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. AFSEE works closely with the other Atlantic Fellows programmes as well as The Atlantic Institute, based in Oxford in the UK, which is an organisation that aims to amplify the influence and impact of the Atlantic Fellows and the Atlantic Fellows programmes.
