We are delighted to announce the launch of a call for research proposals from the Feminist Open Government Initiative, the first phase of which has been supported by the Open Data for Development Network. At the heart of the Open Government Partnership lies a mission to bring together government reformers and civil society leaders to create and implement action plans that make governments more inclusive, responsive and accountable. Reproductive rights and women’s health are an exciting, emerging area of gender commitments to date.
The call seeks to fund research that fills evidence gaps around effective and ambitious gender-focused action plan commitments, how women and women’s organizations can successfully engage in open government co-creation processes, and the impact of applying a gender lens to broader transparency and accountability commitments. We welcome action-oriented research proposals from a broad range of thematic and methodological perspectives.
The Call for Proposals is available here: https://feministopengov.fluidreview.com/. Please help us share this opportunity by forwarding this message to women’s and gender networks and research institutions who may be interested. The application deadline is November 30, 2018.
