CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP)
Partnership for Economic Policy has recently been granted funding by the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom (or UK Aid) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada to lead a new research initiative entitled “Policy Analysis on Growth and Employment” (PAGE) in developing countries.
In accordance to PEP’s core mission, this initiative includes an important “capacity building” component, and thus the selection of a number of teams of individual researchers, based in developing countries, to benefit from the unique and manifold “PEP support program”, in the conduct of high quality research projects.
Applicant teams are generally composed of at least one senior researcher, leading several junior researchers, and must:
- be gender-balanced (at least 50% female researchers)
- be comprised exclusively of individuals born and living in a developing country – with priority given to low income countries (LICs), fragile and/or conflict states (see list)
- present sufficient academic and/or professional background in economics research/policy analysis
Deadline: November 5, 2012
