NWO-WOTRO's Security & Rule of Law research programme launches a call for preliminary proposals within the Applied Research Fund - a subsidy scheme of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs - focussing on legitimate stability. The focus of the call is developed by the SRoL Knowledge Platform. Consortia consisting of (at least) one practitioner and one research organisation are invited to submit proposals. Projects will have a duration of six to nine months.
The aim of this call for proposals is to strengthen the evidence-base on how Security & Rule of Law policies and/or programmes can strengthen legitimate stability in fragile and conflict-affected settings (FCAS), in an effort to achieve sustainable peace and development.
A. Develop evidence-based insights on how Security & Rule of Law policies and/or programmes focusing on human security, rule of law and/or political governance can become more sensitive to, or stimulate, legitimate stability.
B. Facilitate the uptake of the knowledge generated, so that it can be applied by practitioner organisations , including public policy organisations, involved in SRoL policies and/or programmes. Findings should be communicated in such a way that these organisations can easily use the knowledge to (re-)design, or integrate into, the policies and/or programmes described under A.
The maximum available budget per project within this call amounts to 100.000 euros for a project with a duration of six months and 150,000 euros for a duration of 9 months. Applicants may also apply for a project of seven or eight months. This budget can be raised with 50% (amounting to a maximum of 150.000 euros for a project with a duration of six months, and a maximum of 225.000 euros for a project of nine months), in case a project can clearly demonstrate that they undertake either of the following in the project:
Projects will be notified whether they are advised to submit a full proposal in the last week of June.
