(Washington, October 6) – The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) today announced the names of the eight Jennings Randolph Senior Fellows who began a 10-month residency at the Institute on October 1. The Jennings Randolph Senior Fellowship program is a highly competitive international program that provides scholars, policy analysts, policymakers, and other experts with opportunities to spend time in residence at the Institute, reflecting and writing on pressing international peace and security challenges. Fellowships are open to citizens of any country.

Chantal de Jonge Oudraat, USIP’s associate vice president of the Jennings Randolph Fellowship Program, said, “Over the years, Jennings Randolph fellows’ research and publications have made tremendous contributions to our understanding of the causes of conflict and the paths to peace. The JR program allows international experts to interact on a daily basis with scholars, policy experts, and policymakers in Washington, D.C. Now more than ever, it is vitally important for international experts to understand American perspectives on international peace and security issues, and for Americans, in turn, to fully appreciate international views.”

  • Tani Adams, President of the International Institute of Learning for Social Reconciliation (Guatemala City)
