General Lamine Cissé Women, Peace and Security Research Fellowship

  February 11, 2020

April 19, 2020 will mark the first anniversary of the death of General Lamine Cissé, a renowned figure in West Africa and internationally for his commitment and achievements in the pursuit of peace and security, particularly in Senegal and elsewhere in Africa.

In honor of General Cissé, PartnersGlobal, Partners West Africa Nigeria and Partners West Africa Senegal are awarding research fellowships to two young African women researchers and practitioners working in the civil society and security sectors. Each fellow will receive a grant equivalent of 1,500,000 CFA (West African franc) to fund innovative research around the prevention and peaceful resolution of conflicts in Africa with a central focus on women, peace and security.

With these fellowships, the Partners Network aims to cultivate the next generation of leaders in women, peace and security and make progress toward realizing UNSCR 1325.
