UKRI GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub

Call for Project Proposals

The Gender, Justice and Security Hub is a multi-partner five-year research consortium working with local and global civil society, practitioners, governments and international organisations to advance gender justice and inclusive peace. It is one of twelve interdisciplinary research Hubs funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The Hub is oriented towards three agendas for change: Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 on gender equality; SDG 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions; and the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. By bringing researchers from multiple disciplines and practices together, the Hub provides new perspectives on some of the world’s most urgent contemporary injustices and insecurities.

Applications are invited for new projects to contribute to the Hub’s portfolio of cross-cutting research, knowledge exchange, policy impact and innovation and capability-building activities. Successful applications will join the thirty-two projects that currently make up the Hub’s research programme, which is organised under six thematic streams: ‘Transformation and Empowerment’, ‘Livelihood, Land and Rights’, ‘Migration and Displacement’, ‘Masculinities and Sexualities’, ‘Law and Policy Frameworks’ and ‘Methodological Innovation’. New projects will extend or deepen Hub research and impact in at least one of the Hub’s seven focus countries: Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Lebanon, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Uganda. Successful applicants will become full members of the Hub team, and will be invited to participate in Hub Conventions, training and network-building opportunities.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, this funding round has been suspended. We hope to reopen the call for new applications in future.
