The Open Government Partnership (OGP) has launched the Feminist Open Government Initiative and is inviting applications for research projects. The OGP call seeks to fund research that fills evidence gaps around effective and ambitious gender-focused action plan commitments, how women and women organizations can successfully engage in action plan co-creation processes, and the impact of applying a gender lens to broader transparency and accountability commitments..
OGP will welcome action-oriented research proposals from a broad range of thematic and methodological perspectives.
The call for proposals is commissioned under the Feminist Open Government Initiative, a collaboration by Results for Development, the International Development Research Centre, and the Open Government Partnership.
The Feminist Open Government Initiative aims to build and deepen evidence around the impact that gender equality can have on improving governance on public services, addressing corruption, and opening up civic space and inclusion; encourage governments to design and implement improved gender-aware OGP commitments; and establish an international coalition of partners to drive effective participation for all in open government processes.
Applications which can be submitted in English, should be submitted online by November 30, 2018.
