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.
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 practitioners, activists, researchers, policy-makers 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.
The International Inequalities Institute, where the programme is based, brings together experts from many LSE departments and centres to lead critical and cutting-edge research to understand why inequalities are escalating in numerous arenas across the world, and to develop critical tools to address these challenges.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme was established in 2017 with a landmark gift from the Atlantic Philanthropies. Over the next 20 years it will support over 400 Fellows drawn from both the global South and North.
