Research Partnership Programme (RPP)
[06-03-2012]The Research Partnership Programme (RPP) is open for applicants. Deadline is March 21 2012.
Every year, from August to December, the Research Partnership Programme (RPP) provides five researchers from developing and transitional countries the opportunity to be research partners at the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR). The programme is funded by Danish International Development Assistance (Danida) and organised by the DIHR. It appeals to both junior (Master’s degree/equivalent) and senior researchers (PhD/equivalent).
The aim of the RPP is to:
• Strengthen research capacities in academic institutions in developing or transitional
• Upgrade and expand human rights expertise and documentation
• Consolidate DIHRs contacts with human rights research institutions and networks in partner countries
• Attract strong human rights research projects
Programme Structure and theme
The Research Partnership Programme is located in the DIHR’s Research Department. Research partners are provided with office facilities within this department, giving them the opportunity to interact with our human rights researchers. We appoint a supervisor/sparring partner for each research partner and together the research partner and the supervisor agree on a plan for the research activities.
For 2011 and 2012, the programme operates under the thematic focus of “Human Rights and Informal Justice Systems” (IJC), and the topics selected by prospective applicants should ideally fit under this theme.
Please be advised that we have extended the deadline to March 21 2012.
