Inaugural Cohort of NORRAG Senior Fellows (2021)

As the world is confronted by competing tendencies of ethno-nationalism and the Black Lives Matter movement, of growing authoritarianism alongside demands for democracy, NORRAG and the Graduate Institute are launching a Senior Fellowship Programme that will collaboratively debate current issues in international cooperation in education from a decolonial perspective. This urgently needed conversation will result in an edited book and a global virtual conference proposing ways forward.

Through our Senior Fellowship Programme, starting in April 2021, NORRAG brings together researchers whose scholarship raises issues of exclusion and under-represented voices in all contexts, with an express view of connecting insights to and from the majority world. We aim to reverse the current flow of research and decision-making by creating space and a megaphone to amplify expert knowledge on addressing marginalisation to audiences in the North. This programme will also develop long-term research links and partnerships that bring together distinguished expert voices from the Caribbean to the Indian subcontinent, from Africa to Eastern Europe.

The NORRAG Senior Fellowship Programme is designed to attract senior scholars to foster education and research that meaningfully addresses exclusion and under-representation in Northern and Southern contexts. It will showcase the quality of scholarship and brain power that can be brought to bear on these questions, and the capacity of NORRAG and the Graduate Institute to convene these talents.
