The Southern African Institute for Policy and Research (SAIPAR) grants affiliation to select researchers and scholars already established and distinguished in their respective fields and to scholars conducting doctoral or post-doctoral research in Zambia. Research must relate to the fields covered by or adjacent to SAIPAR’s own research programs and interests. SAIPAR offers four categories for affiliation: (a) Fellow – Permanent, (b) Fellow – Visiting, (c) Associate, and (d) Network.
Visiting Fellow, Associate, and Network Member are titles conferred by SAIPAR upon persons who typically have an academic or equivalent appointment at another reputable research institution or university, and who wish to spend time conducting research in Zambia and with SAIPAR. Permanent Fellow Members will be invited by SAIPAR for collaboration on SAIPAR research and programmes. Participants in the Affiliate Programme will be entitled to use SAIPAR facilities where feasible and will be entitled to use of the SAIPAR library.
Further information on the Affiliation Programme can be found in the Programme Guidelines, downloadable here.
