About the Humanity in Action Fellowship

The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of university students and recent graduates to explore national histories of injustice and resistance—including the political foundations of racial hierarchies, Antisemitism, Islamophobia, and colonial domination as they affect different minority groups today. The Summer Fellowship Program takes place in one of five cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo or Warsaw. Each interdisciplinary program features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians, and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit and community organizations, museums and memorials. The programs seek to highlight different models of action to remedy injustice.
