The U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) is pleased to announce three new Jennings Randolph senior fellows for 2020-2021. These fellows will conduct research and publish in their areas of expertise while engaging with experts at USIP headquarters and in the field. Established in 1988, USIP’s Jennings Randolph Senior Fellowship Program is a foundational component of the Institute’s peacebuilding mission. The fellows become an integral part of USIP’s work and contribute to thought leadership and research efforts.
This year’s fellowship competition sought applications from senior experts in two thematic areas.
Two Violent Extremism, Disengagement and Reconciliation Fellowships will research ways to improve practices that can help people end their involvement in violent extremism. The research will explore how communities can help women and children disengage from violent groups and ideologies. These fellowships will give USIP new understandings of terrorism and violent extremist-based conflicts. The recipients are:
A Women, Gender, and Nonviolent Movements Fellowship will support research on women’s involvement in nonviolent movements. The research will offer deeper perspectives on how nonviolent movements can contribute to violence prevention, gender equity and long-term equality. The recipient is:
Ms. Farida Nabourema, executive director of the Togolese Civil League. Her research project investigates how and why security forces, and those within and outside nonviolent movements, use gender-based repression. The research studies the scope and impact of gender-based repression against women in nonviolent movements through four case studies in Algeria, Sudan, Togo and Zimbabwe.

Statement on Ethiopia by the Senior Study Group on Peace and Security in the Red Sea Arena
Thursday, November 5, 2020
News Type: Announcement
As members of the bipartisan senior study group on peace and security in the Red Sea arena, we are watching with grave concern the situation in Ethiopia. While many of the facts remain unclear, the risks of escalation are certain: Intrastate or interstate conflict would be catastrophic for Ethiopia’s people and for the region and would pose a direct threat to international peace and security. The acceleration of polarization amid violent conflict would also mark the death knell for the country’s nascent reform effort that began two years ago and the promise of a democratic transition that it heralded.
