Associate Fellows

Associate Fellows are distinguished members invited by the GCSP who have the opportunity to share their experience and expertise with the GCSP community through a range of activities.

The GCSP provides them a forum to advance projects leveraging the GCSP’s resources, and to interact with GCSP experts, staff and course participants. They are formally affiliated with the GCSP, but based outside the Centre.

Key benefits for you

Associate Fellows are given the opportunity to:

  • Share their expertise and experience with GCSP experts, staff and course participants;
  • Build strong relations with likeminded experts with different backgrounds and from different countries;
  • Join a vibrant and dynamic network, representing a rich source of theoretical expertise and practical experience;
  • Liaise with the GCSP for a mutually agreed-upon period of time.
