Description

Description

The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) is pleased to announce the second edition of the Resilience Fellowship, ‘Extortion as an illicit economy of organized crime’, to build a platform for cross-sectoral, global and interdisciplinary collaboration between civil-society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policymakers, grassroots community leaders and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

 

The Resilience Fellowship is a new initiative of the Resilience Fund that provides support and opportunities to a cohort of individuals from around the world, including civil-society actors, human-rights activists, journalists, artists, scholars, policymakers, community leaders and others working to counter the effects of organized crime.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities

For the year 2021, a total of 10 Fellows will be selected.

 

These can represent the fields of journalism and media; activism; advocacy and community mobilization; the creative arts (including artists, writers, filmmakers and others); community leaders (religious, cultural or youth leaders); academia (researchers and scholars), and the public sector (policymakers). Individuals from other disciplines will be considered if their work is relevant to the Resilience Fellowship’s objectives and annual theme.

 

The Fellowship welcomes applications from individuals of any gender, ethnicity, age, religion, or any other defining factor, who work in communities affected by organized crime. The overall make-up of the 10 Fellows will be diverse and will reflect an equitable geographic and gender balance.

 

Selection criteria:

 

Participants should be from countries disproportionately affected by organized crime and/or from least developed countries (LDCs).

 

Participants should ideally work closely within communities severely affected by extortion related to organized crime, or have strong ties within them, and should have ongoing or established projects or engagement. The cross-border nature of issues relating to organized crime allows applicants working within a wider, non-geographic community to be considered on a case to-case basis. There is no requirement that the Fellow live in the community concerned.

 

Participants should be able to demonstrate how the funding and support will be used.

 

Participants who have direct experience in their communities’ issues, related to the annual theme, are particularly encouraged to apply.

 

Participants must be fluent in at least one of these three languages: Spanish, English and French.

 

Participants’ prior work should demonstrate a commitment to the ethics and values of the Resilience Fund.

Each fellow will receive US$15 000 (divided in three payments of US$5 000) to be executed with no other limitation than the principles of professionalism, integrity and transparency; the proposal presented in the application form; the terms and conditions of the Fellowship agreement, and the implementation of collaborative actions with other fellows.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

For 2021, the theme of the Resilience Fellowship will be extortion and organized crime. Within this framework, Fellows will be asked to combine their various perspectives in the development of collaborative outputs, as well as to represent the Fund as Resilience Fund Ambassadors who will raise awareness of the theme, issues and the importance of civil society in countering organized crime.

 

The Resilience Fellowship is based on a three-pronged approach:

 

  • Sponsorship: Providing financial support, so that Resilience Fellows will have the resources and time to conduct their work on a collaborative project during the fellowship year. Grants of USD$15 000 per fellow will be awarded for one year.
  • Networking: Offering mentorship opportunities with experts from the GI-TOC; the aim is also to bring Resilience Fellows together on a residency retreat to begin the collaborative project to be undertaken during their fellowship year.
  • Dissemination: Creating a platform for Resilience Fellows to share their work and ideas publicly – using platforms such as festivals, conferences, civil-society forums, and national and international publications. These will widen public discourse, deepen engagement with society, and elicit support and participation from the general public and, ultimately, policymakers.
