The Open Society Fellowship has selected three new fellows, who will begin their terms in late 2013 and 2014. They are:
Madawi al-Rasheed: Divine Politics: Mutations of Saudi Islamists
al-Rasheed, a social anthropologist, will look at whether young, middle-class, Saudi Islamists can contribute to democratization in the Kingdom and elsewhere in the Arab region.
Jennifer Gordon: Regulating Global Labor Supply Chains
Gordon, a law professor and activist, will address the substantial harms that global labor recruitment and subcontracting pose to workers’ rights, transparency, and democracy in an open society.
Timothy A. Wise: The Maize Trail: New Perspectives on the Global Food Crisis
Wise looks at the connections linking food, fuel, and financial markets in the context of a changing climate, by tracking the trade in maize from the United States to developing countries in Africa and Latin America.
