ESRC-AHRC call for proposals on Forced Displacement

Purpose of call

The ESRC in collaboration with Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) are launching a call for innovative, interdisciplinary projects focusing on the experiences of the forced displaced (both internationally and internally) whether due to poverty, war, conflict, persecution or human rights violations.  The call for proposals is attached herewith and further information can be found here:


Relevance to Irish researchers

There is potential for interested Irish researchers to participate in this call as international co-investigators. Academic researchers (at PhD or equivalent status) from established overseas Research Organisations of comparable standing to ESRC-eligible UK Research Organisations are eligible to be listed as international co-investigators under this call. The ESRC will consider funding the direct costs of international co-investigators at 100 per cent fEC (full-economic costing). However, these costs must not exceed 30 per cent of the full 100 per cent fEC cost of the grant.  

Further information on the inclusion of international co-investigators can be found here: .

An international co-investigator is an individual from a research organisation outside the UK who otherwise fits the normal definition for a co-investigator on a research project. That is, they assist the grant holder in the management and leadership of a project. They would normally be expected to make a major intellectual contribution to the design and conduct of the project.

THE ESRC’s policies on international co-investigators is attached herewith.
