Source – Centre for Inclusive Policy
Centre for Inclusive Policy Fellowship has launched a fellowship for persons with disabilities in the early or mid-stages of their careers, from the Global South, who are undertaking research and policy analysis in disability inclusion, or who have worked as advocates or organizers but want to transition to more analytical work.
The program provides financial support, exposure to global discourse and developments in the policy landscape, and mentoring to people with disabilities from low- and middle-income countries who are actively working on issues of inclusive policy or policy research in support of the rights of people with disabilities as put forth in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
This year, the focus areas are: inclusive social protection policies, and policies and programs aiming to create community support systems for independent living.
