The British Academy invites proposals for its tackling the UK’s international challenges programme. This supports humanities and social science researchers developing interdisciplinary projects which bear on the understanding of the UK’s international challenges and opportunities. Projects should aim to deliver specific academic, public, cultural and policy-relevant outputs. For this scheme, originality can arise also from looking at material in new ways or bringing forth new understanding from material that has previously been unknown or less well knows, or innovative combinations of researchers in an interdisciplinary manner. Proposals relating to the following themes are particularly welcome:
•conflict, stability and security;
•justice, rights and equality;
Researchers of postdoctoral or above status, based at a UK university or research organisation may apply as lead applicants. International co-applicants are strongly encouraged. Current award holders in this scheme may apply for funding to develop further their original award.
Awards are worth up to £50,000 each for one year and funding may cover research and clerical assistance, research expenses and consumables, travel and subsistence and networking, meeting and conference costs.
