Call for DFID-World Bank-UNHCR Research Proposals


The DFID-World Bank-UNHCR, Building the Evidence on Protracted Forced Displacement: A Multi-Stakeholder Partnership is launching a call for research proposals (papers) under the first new research component:
Preventing social conflict and promoting social cohesion in forced displacement contexts. The deadline for applications is July 30th, 2020.

Research proposals are encouraged in the following three areas:

  • The role of people’s views and perceptions of social justice in generating grievances that can lead to conflict and violence.
  • The role of forced displacement in transforming social inequalities
    and the social fabric.
  • The role of distributional policies in promoting social cohesion.

The research goal is to better understand how policy measures and development investments can help reduce inequalities, alleviate social tensions, and promote social cohesion between and within displaced populations and host communities. The evidence generated through this research program will inform World Bank programming and UNHCR protection
programs in forced displacement contexts.

Applicants should submit the research proposal, and CV of the lead author, to the following link:

Successful applicants will be notified by September 30th, 2020.
