Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is seeking proposals for the third round of its Competitive Fund for Peace and Recovery (P&R) Program that is focused on prevention, mitigation, responses to, and recovery strategies for most forms of social and political violence as well as humanitarian emergencies, including:
- International and internal wars
- State-supported violence and repression, from mass killings to police brutality
- Electoral violence
- Riots, protests, strikes, and other collective action (violent and nonviolent)
- Intergroup violence, including ethnic and sectarian violence
- “Recovery” responses after violence or destruction, such as after civil war or natural disaster
The funding for the Peace & Recovery Program comes from DFID, which has approved £12m of UK Aid for three initiatives, together with our partners at J-PAL.
Deadline: 31 August 2018
IPA’s Peace & Recovery program is designed to support field experiments and related research in several broad areas:
- Reducing violence and promoting peace
- Reducing “fragility” (i.e. fostering state capability and institutions of decision making)
- Preventing, coping with, and recovering from crises (focusing on conflict, but also including non-conflict humanitarian crises)
Eligible Countries: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mexico, Myanmar, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia.
How to Apply
- This will allow the P&R Program to let the applicant know whether the project may or may not be a good match for P&R before the researchers invest time in the full application.
- The P&R Program may grant travel or pilot funding based on EOIs and discussion with the applicants even before the full applications are due.
- In rare cases, the P&R Program may be able to provide feedback to applicants.
