Call for Papers: DFID–UNHCR–World Bank Program 2020: Building the Evidence on Forced Displacement

Call for Research Proposals (papers): Preventing social conflict and promoting social cohesion in forced displacement contexts

In 2016, the UK government’s Department for International Development, the World Bank, and the UNHCR established a joint research program, Building the Evidence on Protracted Forced Displacement: A Multi-Stakeholder Partnership, with the objective of improving global knowledge on forced displacement.

The program is now launching a call for research proposals (papers) under the first new research component: Preventing social conflict and promoting social cohesion in forced displacement contexts.
The goal is to better understand how policy measures and development investments, and their interaction with local contexts, can help reduce inequalities, alleviate social tensions, and promote social cohesion
between and within displaced populations and host communities. The papers generated from this call will be used as background papers to prepare a report on this topic. The evidence generated through this research program will inform World Bank programming and UNHCR protection programs in forced displacement contexts.
Research proposals are encouraged in three areas. Some proposals may cover more than one theme.
