Deadline: 19 November 2017

The Aegis Trust has launched a fourth call for proposals by Rwandan researchers, as part of its Research, Policy and Higher Education (RPHE) programme funded by Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). The programme supports Rwandan researchers to develop policy-relevant academic papers and associated policy briefs on a range of topics related to genocide prevention and peace building.

Themes

  • Memory, identity and narrative
  • Reconciliation and social cohesion
  • Transitional Justice
  • Trauma and psychological/psycho-social issues
  • Gender dimensions of post-genocide recovery
  • Post-genocide economic development
  • Education, media and peacebuilding (with an emphasis on Peace education)

Grant Information

  • At least 9 proposals will receive funding.
  • Each successful proposal will receive the Rwandan Francs equivalent of 2500 British pounds (before tax) to be used for researchers’ remuneration and other costs associated with conducting the research (£1750 will be paid upfront and £750 upon production of the outputs detailed below).
  • The amount paid for each research paper will be the same, regardless of the number of co-authors.

Eligibility Criteria
