LSE IDEAS announces new Jinnah Fellowship to increase understanding of Pakistan's foreign policy

LSE IDEAS is pleased to announce the launch of the Jinnah Postdoctoral Fellowship.

This new fellowship, which has launched on Pakistan’s Independence Day, will seek to increase interest in Pakistan at LSE and the world more broadly.

The goal of the fellowship is to spark meaningful conversations about Pakistan and its place in the world.

It has been generously funded by Dr Saqib Qureshi, the Canadian Jaffari Muslim Foundation, and other donors.

Professor Christopher Coker, Director of LSE IDEAS, says:

“LSE IDEAS is proud to host the Jinnah Postdoctoral Fellowship. Our primary purpose is to promote a better understanding of international politics. This fellowship will bring prominent scholars to LSE to study Pakistan’s foreign policy and further important academic links between Pakistan and the School.”

Dame Minouche Shafik, Director of the London School of Economics, says:

“This fellowship is a welcomed expansion of LSE IDEAS and will bring new insights into Pakistan’s foreign policy to the School, helping to enrich the School’s global outlook and community. The aims of the Jinnah Postdoctoral Fellowship are part of LSE’s commitment to understand today and influence tomorrow.”

Invitations to apply for the fellowship will be posted on our website in due course. At the current time because of coronavirus, we are not sure whether we will be inviting applications towards the end of this year or the beginning of next.
