Eligible to apply are researchers who have completed their doctorate in Social Anthropology in Italy (s.s.d. M-DEA/01) or abroad (in the same research field), and are fluent in Italian and English. Fellows must undertake an ethnographic fieldwork in Sicily among actors involved in migration governance and refugee protection, as well as among vulnerable groups in need of international protection, and collaborate with academic and non-academic partner organizations.
