Spotlight focuses on interviews of current and former fellows regarding their research and publications. These interviews are organized in relation to specific themes and programmatic priorities: Environment, Identity, Gender, Migration and Displacement, Peacebuilding, Security and Development. Here, fellows capture in a succinct manner the experiences and challenges doctoral students face in the course of conducting fieldwork and data collection using short essays, photo essays or videos. Sharing such experiences can be either inspirational or facilitate the sharing of deeper insights into challenges doctoral students from diverse disciplines face in the course of conducting fieldwork in different countries. It will also help promote knowledge on best practices from various contexts.
