The Moynihan NGO Fellowship Program

The Transnational NGO Initiative hosts one or two senior transnational NGO leaders each year. The Moynihan NGO Fellows Program allows these leaders to spend about two weeks of “intellectual rest and recreation”-- time for reflection -- at the Moynihan Institute, interact with faculty and students, and research a topic related to a challenge they have identified within their organization and which matches the research interests of our team. The first Program Fellow visited the Moynihan Institute and the TNGO Initiative in 2007. This Gallery tracks all past fellows by providing information on their past and current positions and organizations, their career biography, as well as their research brief explaining their research goals and any other documents they may have created during their time here.
