The British Academy is inviting proposals from researchers in the humanities and social sciences wishing to develop interdisciplinary projects with a focus on the challenges of education and learning in contexts of conflict and protracted crises.
In recent years, there has been a heightened focus on the development challenges faced in contexts of protracted crises, however, there is a lack of evidence on how to effectively translate this renewed policy interest into practice. In the field of education research, this is further compounded by the comparative lack of research capacity on education in crises. This programme aims to address this gap.
Principal Investigators must be based in the UK, however, equitable international collaboration is strongly expected to be detailed in any application. We particularly encourage the involvement of Co-Applicants from the Global South and expect to see applications which demonstrate fully how researchers from the Global South will be involved as equal partners in the research proposed.
The Principal Investigator and any Co-Applicants must be of postdoctoral or above status, or have equivalent research experience, and hold an established role that will last at least the duration of the grant funded by the British Academy.
All projects must be ODA-eligible. Only proposals which aim to support the economic development and welfare of developing countries will be supported under this call.
Value and duration
Projects must be 21 months in duration, with a maximum value of £360,000 (and will be offered on a 100% full economic cost basis). All projects must begin on 20 March 2020.
Applications must be submitted online using the British Academy’s Flexi-Grant® system.
Application deadline: 4 December 2019 (17.00 UK time)
