Three GCRF Post-Doctoral Fellows join GDI
The Global Development Institute has three new Global Challenges Research fund (GCRF) Post-Doctoral Fellows who will be based at the Institute over the next year. The fellowships provide career development opportunities for those at a relatively early stage of their academic career and will enhance the capacity of early career researchers.

Badru was previously a Research Associate at the Effective States and Inclusive Development research centre.

Ibrahim Efe will be working on migration policy in Turkey, with Tim Jacobs, specifically on the management of asylum policy in Turkey. He is a Lecturer at the Department of Public Administration and Political Science, Kilis 7 Aralik University (Turkey).
