We partner with the Forum for Social Studies (Addis Ababa) and the Enlightened Myanmar Research Foundation (Yangon) to enable research capacity development through: the allocation of small, medium and large grants; mentoring in research methods and dissemination; facilitation of learning between grantees; support in advocacy; stimulating debate and discussion; and fostering multi-disciplinary co-operation within wider research networks.

Research supported by our grants address one or more of three research themes (read about them here), and contribute to understandings of the relationship between Parliaments, elected politicians, and people in society.

Grantees are required to include arts and humanities methods, theories and/or design outputs. The latter are created with professional media, arts, and theatre organisations, and draw on the expertise of selected world-class specialists, with the budget for support, guidance, mentoring, and training drawn from the grant awarded by us, or elsewhere.
