The Arts and Humanities Research Council, via UK Research & Innovation, and the Department for International Development invite applications for their collaborative humanitarian protection research programme – thematic research grants call. This supports research to better understand the causes of humanitarian protection risks or violations and to gather evidence about which interventions are most effective in improving humanitarian protection outcomes. The regions of focus prioritised for this call are: Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine, Libya, Sudan, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Somalia, Nigeria, Chad, Sahel region, Afghanistan and Myanmar. However, applicants can make the case for studying another region, including those hosting large numbers of refugees that have fled conflict. Proposals should address one or more of the following themes:

  • impact of violations of international humanitarian law;
  • impact of protection programming;
  • impact of restraint;
  • impact of local protection mechanisms;
  • impact of recognition on protection;
  • impact of targeting
