Dear list members,
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Cairo, Egypt is issuing a request for expression of interest in order to invite talented researchers to submit innovative research proposals which aim to examine different aspects of complex migration flows along the North-Eastern African Migratory Route and in North Africa.
IOM's MENA Regional Office has recently established the inter-agency Migration Coordination Task Force for the North-Eastern African Migratory Route and North Africa (MTF-NOAH). Migrants transiting along these routes often experience considerable abuse and exploitation. The inter-agency Task Force advocates for and helps to facilitate a coherent and regionally coordinated migration management response to the increasingly complex migration flows along these routes.
One of the core areas of MTF-NOAH's work is the development of the knowledge base on complex migration flows in the region and the multifarious relationships they have with the socio-economic and political context within which they are situated, in places of transit, origin and destination.
Please find the call for papers here: http://www.egypt.iom.int/Doc/Research%20Proposals.pdf
Please send proposals by the 11th April.
Interested candidates are expected to send an abstract of their proposal (350 words maximum), a brief description of the methodology suggested along with their Curriculum Vitae
Remuneration is competitive and will be commensurate with the scope of the work proposed and experience of the researcher.
