Since 2017 our network has provided £800,000 in Parliaments and People (P4P) Grants. These fund innovative and multidisciplinary projects that seek to develop understandings of the relationship between parliaments, politicians and people across Ethiopia and Myanmar – particularly with respect to history, gender and culture.  The project proceeds from the belief that multidisciplinary investigations that combine the social sciences, arts and humanities can reveal new perspectives and amplify the impacts of research findings in ways that are imaginative, creative and inclusive. Therefore, all our P4P Grant recipients are asked to include a substantive (creative) arts and/or humanities element. And we give priority to those who don’t normally get grants: young women, those outside the capital, and those who identify as an ethnic minority. Through the P4P Grants scheme we hope to contribute to three research agendas: creating opportunities for researchers who tend to get side-lined, deepening democracy through multidisciplinary arts and scholarship, and helping make research more inclusive.
