Call for Proposals | IPA Peace & Recovery Competitive Fund

Innovations for Poverty Action is currently accepting proposals for research related to peace and recovery, and wanted to share the funding opportunity with your faculty and PhD students. We are offering grants for full research projects and pilots, as well as grants for exploratory work, which may be of particular interest for PhD students and Postdocs.

The program prioritizes studies that develop, illustrate, or test fundamental theories of peace, violence, and recovery, especially those that challenge common beliefs, pioneer innovative interventions, and produce evidence where little currently exists. Topics of study include:

  • Participation and organization of violence
  • Social order without the state
  • State and institution building
  • Service delivery and development in unstable or violent contexts
  • Forced displacement
  • Rehabilitation and recovery from violence, and building peace
  • Crisis prevention, response, and recovery
  • Homicide in Latin America and the Caribbean

P&R will be holding two Q&A sessions about the call, with tips about what makes a successful proposal. You can register for the Q&A sessions here:
