IBRAF launches Fellowship Program on South-South and Triangular Cooperation (IFP)

The Brazil Africa Institute is launching the IBRAF Fellowship Program on South-South and Triangular Cooperation (IFP). The program aims to present practical experiences for the fellows, who will be able to follow, monitor, and study the international cooperation projects being developed by IBRAF, as well as by its wide network of partner organizations.

Professors, Ph.D. candidates, Masters students, specialists, undergraduates, and professionals of the field of international relations and related areas can participate. The IFP will last 8 weeks, with participants being in Brazil between January and March of 2021.

South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) is one of the main drivers and catalysts of international development and has become an important object of discussions, especially in recent years, when we see the growing need for greater cooperation between countries and the challenges for the implementation of a credible global development agenda.

Visiting fellows will be able to engage in one of the following key-areas, addressing themes that are relevant and pressing for Brazil, the African continent, and other regions: Trade and investments across the South Atlantic; Technical cooperation and capacity-building; Economic and sustainable development; Demography, urbanization, housing, and public health; Agriculture, agribusiness, and rural development.

During the program, Visiting Fellows will engage in the production of briefing notes, research papers, situation analysis, op-eds, and seminars.
