Small Grants for Research Papers on Feminist Evaluation/evaluation with gender and equity lens: Call for Proposals (India)
Feminist/ gender transformative approaches to evaluation seek to unpack the nature of gender and social inequalities and further see evaluation as a political activity, itself part of a change process. There is relatively little literature on such approaches that reflect on the Indian context, and our objective is to help build the field by supporting research on Evaluation Design, Methods, Process, and Use.
Evaluators and researchers in India who have been part of evaluations seeking to understand and address gender issues within the programmes/ policies/ organisations being evaluated, are invited to contribute to this project on feminist evaluation.
Please note that funds are not available to conduct an evaluation but rather are for ‘evaluation research’ which can be applied or theoretical.For examples from published papers, please see the Indian Journal of Gender Studies, Special Issue on ‘Evaluating gender and equity’, Vol 19, no 2, June 2012, guest edited by Katherine Hay, Ratna M. Sudarshan and Ethel Mendez; and an edited book titled Feminist Evaluation Methodologies (forthcoming, Zubaan/ ISST).
Call for proposals:
Concept notes should be submitted to Dr Rajib Nandi at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.Please address any queries/ clarifications on the same email. Applications can be submitted at any time before July 31, 2017.
