The aim of the programme is to enhance economic research, capacity-building, and policy dialogue in South Africa and the Southern African region.
This request is for research proposals that will advance the SA-TIED programme’s work on enterprise development for job creation and growth.
Proposals from individuals (or groups of individuals) as well as non-profit-organizations are welcome.
Applications from suitably qualified women and developing country researchers are particularly encouraged.
Recent progress in narrowing gender gaps in education, health, and political representation has not been matched by similar improvements in labour market outcomes for women, or more broadly, women’s economic empowerment.
Global data shows that there has been no increase in female labour force participation and no decrease in the gap between men and women.
Deadline: 31 March / 30 September (each year) The United Nations University (UNU-WIDER) UN Visiting Ph D Fellowship Programme is inviting doctoral students around the world to apply for a funded opportunity to utilize the resources and facilities at UNU-WIDER for their Ph D dissertation or thesis research, and to work with UNU-WIDER researchers in areas of mutual interest.
Ph D fellows typically spend 3 consecutive months at UNU-WIDER and are expected to return to their home institution afterwards.
Applications from groups composed by at least 50% women will be given preference over groups with a smaller female quota.
Proposals may address one or more of the research questions.
