Apply Now for the Landecker Democracy Fellowship 2023/24

Humanity in Action is looking for 24 Fellows to participate in the upcoming cohort of changemakers working on projects related to the topic of Democracy and the Politics of Memory.

The Landecker Democracy Fellowship was launched in 2020 in partnership with the Alfred Landecker Foundation. As an incubator for democracy in the digital age, the Landecker Foundation promotes the development of open, democratic, and discrimination-free societies via innovative and disruptive means.

Each year, ​​the Landecker Fellowship unites changemakers who possess diverse identities and ideas, yet are bound by a shared commitment to democratic values. At the core of the Fellowship is a dedication to peer-to-peer learning and a strong sense of community. This is why they actively seek out passionate, hands-on, and collaborative Fellows.

Projects should explore questions like:

  • Who gets to decide what is remembered and what is forgotten?
  • How do different societies deal with past crimes or post-colonial questions?
  • How do experiences of war and genocide change the equation?
  • What role do history and memory play in accountability processes?
  • How are historical narratives used to impact present-day political discourses and decision-making processes?
  • How do the politics of memory change current political landscapes?

Our offer:

  • Get the time and financial freedom to work on a purpose-driven mission
  • Connect with like-minded impact makers and create lifelong connections
  • Get support and recognition for your work

This Fellowship offers one year of training and 15,000 Euro in funding for Fellows to implement their projects locally. Humanity in Action runs a virtual training program throughout the year and hosts a one-week in-person conference. Young professionals with at least 5 years of working experience based in the EU, UK, US, and Ukraine are eligible to apply.

The deadline to apply is Sunday, August 6, 2023.
