Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs this week announced its 2011-12 research fellows. While the Belfer Center is the hub of research, teaching, and training in international security affairs and diplomacy, environmental and resource issues, science and technology policy, and conflict studies at Harvard Kennedy School, the heart of the Center is its resident research community. The 32 new fellows join 30 continuing fellows drawn from governments, academia, and the public and private sector.
“Belfer Center is, at its heart, people,” said Kevin Ryan, the Belfer Center’s executive director for research. “The fellows who come to the center refine their ideas and proliferate them among the academics, students and policy makers who come from Washington and other capitals around the globe to hear new ways of thinking about vexing problems.”
The Belfer Center’s new 2011-12 fellows will spend one or two years conducting research with its International Security Program, Technology and Public Policy Program, Environment and Public Policy Program, Project on Managing the Atom, the Dubai Initiative, and the Initiative on Religion in International Affairs, Science. Some hold joint fellowships.
