The Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) is accepting applications for migration research that features and investigates “African Voices from the Ground”. The research project is the first phase of a three-tier migration programme the two organisations have designed. The findings of the research feeds into the subsequent phases, i.e. dialogue platforms and development of actionable recommendations.


It is evident that research-based perspectives from African communities across the continent, that constitute source and transit routes for migration, are necessary for effective interventions. In that prespective, the research aims to gather data from such communities using systemic research methods based on information gathered from citizens, civil society organizations, government officials and professionals working on migration issues. 

 

The research data will be collected from five countries, namely Ethiopia, South Africa, Senegal, Chad and Tunisia, representing the five regions of Africa. The data will then be analysed holistically and regionally with a policy focus leading to developing findings and actionable recommendations suitable for deliberations among policy makers in Migration Platforms to be held in Africa and in Europe. University based research groups, selected from among the applicants of this call, will undertake the study in the selected countries. Universities should be based in the country of proposed research location and will be paid 7500 Euro for their work.

 

Application Procedure

Applicants should submit their application documents to research@ipss-addis.org before 17 March 2017. Applications should consist of the following:

  1. An expression of interest, enclosing
    1. A document detailing the background of the university and demonstrating its capacity to undertake research on migration (not more than 500 words)
    2. Curriculum Vitae, enclosing a list of publications, of the Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator(s) (Co-Is),
