As with any Institute of Advanced Study, fellows at THE NEW INSTITUTE can pursue their own projects.
As a Platform for Change, we also expect our fellows to devote half of their time to collaborative work in the respective fellow group. Within the program framework of THE NEW INSTITUTE, fellow groups devise questions for collaborative exploration, developing tangible outcomes with societal relevance during their residency. Possible outcomes include (but are not limited to) discussion papers, policy papers, pilot projects, prototypes, artistic representations, multi-stakeholder dialogues, outreach activities, atypical alliances.
Publications and any other results arising from the collaborative research work during the fellow's stay will be published under the aegis of THE NEW INSTITUTE. Publications arising from the fellow's own work will be published independently by the fellow with reference to funding from the THE NEW INSTITUTE.
Fellows generally work within one of our programs in groups of up to 15 people. Exchanges across individual fellow groups is explicitly desired. Most groups comprise around 70% academics and 30% practitioners from other sectors such as activism, politics, art, media, journalism, business, administration.
Each program has one or more program directors who steer the group. Each fellow group is accompanied and supported in its collaborative work by a program manager.
We operate on the basis of following code of conduct.
