Carnegie and the International Development Research Centre have launched the Eliciting and Applying Local Research Knowledge for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding initiative, a jointly funded research program designed to increase the level of recognition and utilization of local peace-building and state-building expertise and capacity in post-conflict contexts where challenges are most acute, with a specific emphasis on sub-Saharan Africa. The IRDC track is open to institutions located in Africa. The IRDC will fund proposals that complement those funded by Carnegie but will focus on a much more narrow sub-set of peacebuilding and statebuilding. The focus will be on assessing how political settlements can foster public confidence in peacebuilding and statebuilding processes. The Center anticipates issuing grants for up to a maximum of $400,000. Proposals for the IRDC grants will be accepted between June 1 and August 31, 2012. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
