The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) has announced 32 new fellows for the 2009-10 academic year. Fellows will conduct research within the Belfer Center’s International Security Program (ISP), Project on Managing the Atom (MTA), Program on Intrastate Conflict (ICP), Initiative on Religion in International Affairs, Energy Technology Innovation Policy (ETIP) research group, and The Dubai Initiative. Some fellows will also conduct research directly for the center, and others will hold joint fellowships with HKS’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy. Details on each program and fellow are available on the Belfer Center Web site.
The Belfer Center is the hub of research, teaching, and training in international security affairs, environmental and resource issues, science and technology policy, and conflict studies at HKS. The heart of the center is its resident research community with more than 50 research fellows drawn from governments, academia, and the public sector. The new fellows come from countries as diverse as Egypt, India, Iran, Israel, Italy, South Africa, and South Korea.
“The Belfer Center’s research fellows bring to the center and to Harvard a rich diversity of experience, insight, and ideas,” said Eric Rosenbach, Belfer Center executive director for research. “Our fellows are selected by the center’s major research programs and are expected to work collaboratively with other center researchers, as well as on their own projects.” This year’s fellows, he said, “will research issues of critical significance internationally, ranging from security issues such as nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and counterinsurgency to climate change and energy policy.”
