King's College African Leadership Centre Fellows visit SSRC

SSRC Headquarters

On July 22, 2013, the Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum (CPPF) warmly welcomed a group of visiting fellows from the African Leadership Centre at King's College London to our office. In New York as part of a collaboration with the International Peace Institute, the fellows visited the SSRC for a day of discussions on the Africa-focused work of CPPF and other SSRC programs. They met with the staff of CPPF, the African Peacebuilding Network, the Next Generation Social Sciences in Africa program, the International Dissertation Research Fellowship Program, and the SSRC's Communications Department for a series of lively and thought-provoking discussions on the research-policy connection, dissertation and grant proposal writing, and how best to use new media and blogging to broaden the exposure of important research.
