David Sungho Park, IGCC Dissertation Fellowship Recipient

The UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) addresses global challenges to peace and prosperity through academically rigorous, policy-relevant research, training, and outreach on international security, economic development, and the environment.

To examine the complex range of issues in our fast-evolving global environment, IGCC seeks to support dissertations around research topics that closely track current global security priorities.

The competition is open to all academic disciplines. Multidisciplinary approaches and policy-relevant work are encouraged. Proposals are scored on both relevance and quality. To meet IGCC criteria for relevance,

1. the proposed research must fit within one of the themes; and
2. the international sources and/or consequences of the phenomenon studied must be an integral part of the project.


Congratulations goes out to David Sungho Park. As his proposal entitled “Women Empowerment and Intimate Partner Violence: A Randomized Controlled Trial in Liberia” was selected to receive this prestigious fellowship.
