United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) is calling for research proposals on Transforming Informal Work and Livelihoods for a special journal issue and book volume.
UNU-WIDER invites proposals from qualified researchers for papers examining the constraints to the growth of informal enterprises and livelihood enhancement for the working poor in the informal sector.
The aim is that these papers will culminate as articles in a special issue of a journal. For papers that may not be suitable for publication in the special issue of the journal in consideration, they may be published in an edited book volume instead.
While the emphasis is on empirical papers using panel data, theoretical work as well as papers using qualitative or mixed methods will be considered as well.
Proposals from individuals (or groups of individuals) as well as non-profit organizations are welcome. Applications from suitably qualified women and developing country researchers are particularly encouraged. Proposals may address one or more of the research questions.
Application submission deadline: July 15, 2019
Visit the UNU-WIDER website to find out more about this opportunity, including how to apply.
