Description

The SSRC Drugs Security and Democracy Fellowship program supports research on drugs, citizen security and democratic governance, with a goal of producing evidence-based knowledge and influencing drug policy.

The fellowship seeks to develop a concentration of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant outcomes and membership in a global interdisciplinary network.

DSD funded research must address the primary theme of drugs in relation to security and/or democracy in Latin America or the Caribbean.

These topics may include, but are not limited to, the following issues and areas of study: the relationship of drugs to crime and violence, the impact of drug policy innovations (decriminalization, etc.), and the impact of drug markets on public health and human rights.

Proposals must demonstrate the potential of the research to contribute to a sound and credible knowledge base for informed advocacy and decision making for drug policy.

Projects that do not have a primary focus on the theme of drugs will be eliminated from the competition.

The program encourages interdisciplinary and comparative projects and those that address transnational and trans-regional issues.

We encourage research in or about countries or themes that have been underrepresented in the program’s previously funded projects.
