Applications are now open for MENASP Network’s Social policy and Conflict Prevention (MENASP-CP) Research Fund sits within the Network’s Strengthening social welfare and security in the MENA region Research Programme, which aims to advance scholarship and practice in security, social equality and social protection in the MENA region.
This call aims to examine the relationship between social policy and conflict prevention (both broadly defined) by emphasizing the perspectives of citizens and residents in conflict-affected MENA countries.
- Research project grants (between £10,000 – £50,000) are available for projects for up to 12 months.
- UK research organizations are funded at 80% FEC; ODA-based MENA-led organization applications are eligible for 100% of the costs.
- There is only one funding scheme, but some funding is ring-fenced for applicants who are based in a MENA country included on the ODA list. Interdisciplinary, comparative (including with non-MENA countries), and early-career-led proposals are welcome.
- Applicants are invited to think creatively, push the boundaries of knowledge and practice and above all, focus as closely as possible on the wide-ranging relationships between social policies (including social protection) and conflict prevention in the MENA region. This may involve historical or contemporary perspectives and requires direct engagement with peace and conflict studies literatures.
