Call for Proposals – Research on Forced Migration and Humanitarian Assistance

This is a Call for Proposals for research on Forced Migration and Humanitarian Assistance: Critical Implications and Integral Solutions under the Research for Resilience and Preparedness Grants Program, administered by Response 2 Resilience (R2R, www.response2resilience.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to the systematic strengthening of leadership within the disaster risk management and humanitarian assistance community through research, training and advocacy. The grants program is funded by the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC, preparecenter.org).

The grants program will support researchers to examine the causes and effects of forced migration in order to improve response to humanitarian crises and protracted refugee situations in the most vulnerable communities.  The subject matter is complex and crosses many borders and requires researchers to address both the drivers of forced migration as well as the experiences of affected people themselves.  Therefore, R2R in partnership with the GDPC seeks proposals to assess and identify the risk factors and opportunities that are inherent to population displacement to better inform and strengthen humanitarian work.

One grant of $50,000 and two grants of $25,000 are available. 

The proposal submissions will take place in two phases:

Submission of concept notes: deadline August 5, 2016 (closed) 

Submission of selected, full proposals: deadline September 23, 2016 (closed)

Please see the attached Program Guidelines for additional information on the program and the submission guidelines. 

For questions, please contact Dr. Eric Corzine, ecorzine@response2resilience.org
