The Airey Neave Trust (Charity / Trust)
Reference Number: R150
Key Award Information
The Airey Neave Trust commemorates the late Airey Neave DSO OBE MC MP who, before his assassination in the Palace of Westminster in 1979, was passionately concerned with two issues, freedom, for which he fought, and the law which he practised. It was for this reason that the promotion of the principle of Freedom under the Law was adopted as the Trust's main objective.
Award Title: Airey Neave Research Fellowship
Award Description: The Airey Neave Research Fellowship aims to support serious research connected with national and international law and human freedom.
There are 1-3 awards offered every year which provide funding of £20,000.
Purpose: Intended for postdoctorate research that falls within the definition of helping to protect and/or enhance personal freedom under the rule of democratic law, either national or international, against the threat and consequences of political violence. It may, specifically, concentrate on a subject relating to terrorism, political violence and torture. Theologians are encouraged to submit proposals, especially those which would go some way towards shedding light on radicalisation.
How to Apply
There is no application form and no closing date. However, applicants should produce a research plan for the period of the fellowship (which can be for one or two years) of not more than 500 words, giving a synopsis of the planned research and a more detailed account suitable for an expert referee’s judgment.
