In October 2019, the Global Initiative Against Organized Crime announced the launch of the Resilience Fellowship, an initiative aimed at building a platform for cross-sectoral, global and interdisciplinary collaboration to counter the effects of organized crime.
Each year, the Fellowship will have a chosen theme focusing on a global issue around which fellows collaborate to find new perspectives and responses, drawn from their diverse but shared experiences.
We are now delighted to present our Fellows, after the successful completion of the selection process:
Rubaya, Democratic Republic of the Congo
State of Bolivar, Venezuela
Maria Isabel Cruz
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Sok Phay Sean
Focusing on the 2020 Resilience Fellowship’s theme: “Disappearances Related to Organized Crime”, each of the 10 Fellows will be supported in their work with communities, be encouraged to pursue collaborative projects, and provided with mentorship, training opportunities and different international platforms for the dissemination of their work.
