(This Algeria specific grant will complement the Work Packages undertaken by MADAR’s partners in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.)

MADAR will commission one project in Algeria of up to £29,000 that addresses the issue of protection and vulnerability in the contexts of displacement, via interdisciplinary, cross-sector research that aims to have a transformational impact on the humanitarian protection of vulnerable displaced people across the Maghreb region.

Project proposals should address one of the following priorities:

  1. Addressing the after-effects of harm: To what extent are the immediate protection needs of displaced people addressed? Can they access food, shelter, healthcare, education, and work?
  2. Reducing risk exposure: How do broader cultural and socio-economic factors hinder or facilitate the protection of displaced people? To what extent are displaced people integrated into Algeria? How can racism and interculturality be more effectively addressed to reduce and prevent harm?
  3. Promoting change: What are the existing local, national and regional protection measures (e.g. legislative frameworks) for South-South displaced people in the Algeria? What impacts do they have? What are the gaps? Are the existing legislations effectively implemented?

Proposals should also address one of the key interconnected themes: a) Vulnerability and protection; b) Space, community and interculturality; c) Advocacy and action research.

Expected project duration is up to 6 months and all projects must be completed by the end of March 2022. Projects must focus on Algeria.

We particularly encourage projects that include Early Career Researchers and actively involve underrepresented groups and organizations.

The fund is open to applicants from academic and non-academic backgrounds; applicants can be from an NGO, University or academic institution, and Arts or Cultural Organisation, however, the main applicant must be based in Algeria.
