Evaluating Social Science Research Systems

The Global Development Network (GDN) welcomes applications from research teams based in Asia to act as Doing Research (DR) national correspondents interested in leading Doing Research Assessments (DRA) in their respective countries. Applications from teams based in countries represented in the Association of Asian Social Science Research Councils (AASSREC) will be given first priority. Specific attention will be given to applications from teams based in Cambodia, Laos and India interested in leading a DR Assessment in the country, starting in October 2024

In India, the implementation will be done with the support of Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) in partnership with GDN. The DRAs are expected to be completed by late 2025, and that results will be featured at the biennial AASSREC conference. A grant of up to 50,000 USD is set per research team to implement a DRA in their respective country for a period of 15 months, with technical support and advice from GDN’s global Doing Research team. Research teams must apply through a research institute or center. Application documents must be written in English.

The application deadline is July 19, 2024. In case of queries, write to Daniel Fussy at dfussy@gdn.int copying doingresearch@gdn.int.
