The Jefferson Scholars Foundation’s National Fellowship Program supports outstanding scholars at top institutions across the country who are completing dissertations that: employ history to shed light on American politics and public policy, examine the intersection of technology and democracy, study the impact of global affairs on the United States, media and politics, and/or examine the role of the presidency in shaping American political development.
Finding a way to deal with a violent past following events such as civil war, the end of an authoritarian regime or occupation, is often argued to be the basis for lasting peace, democracy and rule of law. International advocacy networks, norms and legal frameworks support national and local actors in the design of mechanisms and processes like truth commissions, tribunals or commemorations. The interactions of these actors shape whether a particular dealing with the past process succeeds in being locally relevant and effective.
